Dear people who have blogs and use the phrase “If you think this post is about you it probably is”,
I would appreciate it if you people would stop using that phrase when writing a post about someone specific. Either tell the person in private, name their name and humiliate/piss them off, or just DON’T SAY IT.
Everytime I read that, I think it’s me. Even if I don’t know you, even if we’ve never talked, even if you have no idea I even exist.
I will think it’s me you’re talking about.
I am very paranoid, like that. That’s the reason I believe my husband threw away (or perhaps, HID) my $50.00 medical journal. After reading it, I am convinced I have Cancer of the throat, of the bone, Hodgekins disease, high blood pressure, hypothyrodism, multiple scolorosis…
And those are just a few. And I’m not even kidding.
I even went to the doctor and told I thought I had throat cancer.
He wanted to know why I thought that.
I told him because after reading the symptoms and feeling the tiny lump on my neck, I put 2 and 2 together.
He laughed. He agreed to do tests for peace of mind even though he doesn’t have any reason to think that I Have cancer.
So, I’d appreciate it if we can stop playing that little “if you think this post is about you” game, because I WILL ALWAYS THINK IT’S ABOUT ME. ALWAYS.
