Do doctors Google patients in their care?
And if they do, should I be scared?
I googled myself… what else could I do?
I needed to know what rumors were true.
Just what will my doctors see?
When they are googling me?
They already know my blood results,
And the history of my folks.
So far I’ve found many obituaries for me,
Wonder if all these me’s had this disease?
My only fear now – is that my doctors may find,
That I’m only in pain and not really alive!

Note to readers…
I’ll attach a link to the article that prompted today’s poem in the comments.
