I'm actually not registered with a gp because I'm 25 but still live with my parents but they haven't registered me... so been relying on Google, WebMD and stuff I can buy at a pharmacy. I know I sound really bad

A thorough search for my symptoms and then the doctors for confirmation.
Although I usually just come here nowadays

My dad's a doctor so I don't have to worry about appointments or other stuff.

When I am ill, I go to the doctor to get a diagnosis for my illness. The internet cannot substitue the experience of a doctor who I trust. I may looking for my illness in the internet, but it is highely unreliable, as I have not the knowledge of a doctor to judge and to recognize it. So I am not capable of giving a diagnosis, unless I am a doctor.
I always buy my medicine in a chemist's, just because there are people who may give me good advices and have not to wait till it is delivered.
