I don’t get people that are completely besotted by their health. Every little sniffle and sneeze or rash is life threatening. Facebook seems to be nirvana for them. Really I am sorry for those that are truly ill but most of the really sick people don’t post every burp, fart or temperature on social media. After awhile I go brain numb and need to block them. My imagination starts playing tricks on me and at my age that can be a symptom of other things.
At the same time several people that have really debilitating and or life threatening illnesses never say a word as they want to be treated like everyone else and not be pitied. Why is that? Narcissism seems to be at the center of all of this. Look at me!! Look at me!! Give me pity, money, cards and sympathy. Me, Me, Me.
We all have issues and health worries. A lot of us are carers for those that are ill. Most come to social media to escape for awhile just to be awash in symptoms and moaning.
Call me uncaring or just plain mean but I wish people would just stop it. If I want to see sick people I can volunteer in a hospital. You are sick then go take care of yourself. See a doctor. Get treated. Mentioning in passing that you have an illness or asking for awareness of illnesses is fine. I get that but we don’t need to share every detail.
Sorry for the rant but it really ticks me off to see people that have imaginary illnesses parading around while others that have such terrible illnesses never say a word and try to escape it on social media.
And for God’s sake stop looking up symptoms on the internet and get to a doctor!!!
