I was gobsmacked today! My lower jaw dropped, my eyes boggled and my head shook from side to side.
Now I know you need to use a degree of common sense when researching stuff online, but it might be nice if some online “journalists” had at least a few working brain cells!
I have been trawling around online today, following my nose (as you do) trying to find an answer to a perplexing question. I couldn’t find a definitive answer but what I did find was an awful lot of people, over almost a decade, asking the same question.
They asked on various forums, message boards and those medical sites where random Drs reply. On one Drs site the same question was posed about 6 times by different people using different wording, but all essentially wanting to know the same thing. Each question was answered by 1 – 3 Drs and no two Drs had the same solution.
Yeah……..that inspires confidence in medical science, doesn’t it!?!?
Aaanyway, I rephrased my search terms (as you do) and about 3rd or 4th in the Google results was a website that appeared to be a medically themed online magazine style website, so I clicked.
What I found…..oh ye gods!!!……was an article presenting a selection of information as facts.
What the “author” had submitted was actually a re-write of what I had read earlier on the forums and message boards.
Basically they summed up a load of speculation, individual experiences and in one instance total random bollocks and presented it as fact!!! FFS!!!
You can see why my jaw dropped!
Seriously, seriously bad journalism!!!!
On to the other stuff 🙂
Germs appear to be gone, but sleep so badly screwed up I have about as much energy as a wet tissue and stupidly painful muscle twitches and cramps.
Yesterday I did some clearing out. Ridding my life of more remnants from last year and it felt so good!! 😀
And…….Rory managed to slide off the top of my wardrobe into the small space in the corner behind my radiator *face palm*. She wasn’t hurt, Thank the Starry Skies, but she was a bit perplexed by the experience, bless her. These big round golden eyes peered at me from the gloom. It took about 10 minutes to convince her that climbing back up the fabric side of my wardrobe was not a good idea when she could extricate herself from her predicament by simply walking along the top of my radiator. It was luke warm, by the way.
Bless her. For a cat that can open drawers using 3 different methods and open a door using the handle, she is sometimes very dense LOL.
I have scary stuff to do this afternoon. I don’t like scary stuff. But I can’t delay it any longer *pouts and wanders off muttering to herself*
