So, I’ve had this headache that has been lingering for a little over a week now. Every day I wake up and my whole head feels like it’s in a vice. It hurts really badly if I move too quickly or bend over. And it barely responds to over the counter pain meds.
Let’s see if Google can help me figure out what’s going on.
Phew. I’m not the first person to Google this problem. Okay – which result to choose.
Well, Google has been perfecting their search algorithm for nearly 20 years. Obviously they know which search result is the most relevant. I’ll click on number 1. Awesome. Let’s see if I have any of these symptoms. Let me grab my green check mark to mark off the ones that fit.
Oh my gosh. I have them all. What did they say that meant? Oh, good, there’s a link to Aneurysm. Oh, no. This can’t be happening. I’m a mom. Okay. So, worst case scenario is stroke. What should I expect there?
That’s it. I have an aneurysm and that’s going to lead to a stroke and death. It was lovely knowing you all. I’d better go call my doctor and tell him what I learned on Google.
“You know what, doc, now that you mention it, I’m actually feeling a lot better since I took that decongestant. Oh, so you’re saying I just have a sinus infection? Oh. Well, okay, then. That’s great news.”
I knew I was going to be fine.
