Jeff googled "irregular pain
in the kidney area" to see what was up. WebMD
told him that it could just
be a muscle strain; this was Jeff's self
diagnosis and he decided that was the problem
and didn't go to the doctor
. 8 months later Jeff found
out he had terminal hip bone cancer and that he had only 2 years to live.
Elise had a slight pain
in her neck after falling off her bed in the middle of the night and hitting herself. Being a chronic neurotic, she feared for the worst, googled it, just
in case. She self
diagnosed herself to have had throat cancer. She went
to the doctor
out it was a simple trapezius sprain.
