So you sit down with your morning cup of coffee and decide to fire up the internet and catch up on some news. (and this applies to all news sites) Republicans and Democrats clash...yada, yada,....Ancient artifacts found under subway...yada, yada, WAIT ! hit the brakes....."Ten signs of cancer people overlook". LOL.....how many of you both want to read it and avoid it at the same time ? And these articles, no matter what the disease, always feed into HA because they always center around "The little things you may ignore."

Yeah every time I see those I keep on scrolling lol. That’s just an invitation for me to develop every single symptom listed in the article.

Once, no twice I sent an email to the author as it was provided. I explained how articles like hers are poison for those with HA. I chastised her for earning money off the backs of the anxious. Of course, neither replied.

Oh and what about those commercials..seems every other one is for some medicine for heart failure, plaque psoriasis, lupus, etc. And the stupid song to go along with it...”and the beat goes on....” for the heart failure med. You’re suppose to take that info and ask your doctor to prescribe it. I kind of think the doctor knows what’s available and whats best for you if you’re afflicted by one of these ailments.
