    It is hard to not look at times as I am working from home and im sitting in front of a computer screen for 8 hours straight sometimes so the temptation is there whenever I am on breaks or what not.

    I have access to the internet 24/7. I don't Google symptoms anymore because I know it's the psychological equivalent of hitting myself with a hammer!

    Put Post-It notes on your screen..

    Suggestions..

    DON'T YOU DARE!!

    HELP OR HARM?

    DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT, DICKHEAD (this was the one I used)

    I get it that for you this is some very real sinister thing but the reality is its nothing and you're just torturing yourself

    You're completely right, but I don't know why I feel its sinister.

    Because HA has you by the danglers Matthew. That's why it feels sinister. HA only deals in sinister, death, terminal illness, and fear.

    HA deals only in irrational thoughts which is why you need therapy to be able to learn how to challenge these thoughts...

    You have to give Dr Google the heave ho because no good will ever come from Googling symptoms when you have a raging case of health anxiety. I could literally google a paper cut and Dr Ghoulgle will diagnose me with something life-threatening.
