I’m the type of person that wants to know what illness is going to lead to my premature death. When I get the sniffles, the first thing I do is log onto WebMD and check to see if my symptoms lead to some rare exotic disease that I picked up somewhere in my dull day to day activities.
My wife is coming down the home stretch in nursing school and is easily annoyed by my WebMD habits. She gives me a hard time for checking the web rather than asking her (since most of the time it turns out that the sniffles are just the sniffles).
Because I know it annoys her, I like to compare her suggestions / diagnosis to those that I find on WebMD. Yesterday I was experiencing a little discomfort so I turned to my wife for help.
It went like this…
I never did get a diagnosis but today my discomfort is gone.
