Did you have a merry Christmas? Did you eat and drink as much as I did? My dad made prime rib last night, which I dumped on top of egg nog and brandy, and then I polished the whole thing off with pie, wine and coffee.
Um. tummy ache anyone?
Now, I know full well why I was all hurty and uncomfortable. I did it to myself. What about those times when you don't know why you don't feel good or have some other issue? Do you go to the web and start randomly plugging in your symptoms? Here's an alternative: Dr. Jim and Bob's Fun & Helpful Health Advice on Facebook.
These guys have a variety of videos where they offer info on all sorts of topics from Athlete's Foot, to Heartburn and the Hiccups to icky things that deal with the other end of the G.I. spectrum. And they are kind of funny and entertaining.
I think the boys would find some of them very entertaining. It would be nice to get some simple (and light hearted) answers when I have a medical issue I want to know a bit more about, instead of scaring myself with other symptom checkers where I convince myself I have Dengue Fever or Rickets instead of the common cold. They say that laughter is the best medicine, right?
