I haven’t been to a doctor in a long time. I really wouldn’t be going next Friday except for two things: 1) I am getting older and you are supposed to do these things and 2) the growth of whatever it is on my upper left abdominal. If it wasn’t for these things I will head on my merry way, thank you very much. I hate what the medical profession has become. In part it is really not their fault. between the government screwing up healthcare and frivolous lawsuits that cause doctors to check with their lawyers before they do anything it is a wonder we have medical care at all. That said I dislike the fact that there seems to be no desire to get people better in medicine anymore but a larger desire to get people into the system through pharmaceuticals or constant treatments. Their other options are expensive surgeries. Wellness does not seem to be the top of their game but constant treatment is all I am saying.
The real thing I am not looking forward to is the fact I will probably be asked my medical history five times which is actually quite boring. I have nasal allergies, I had surgery on my appendix when I was 17 and my tonsils removed when I was five. I still have the simple wooden cross from a plant someone sent me from the tonsils hanging on my bedroom wall. Family history has no constant killer. Dad had high blood pressure. It hard to tell anything more on that side of the family because he was adopted. Mom’s side is dominated by people who live into their 90s and a few people making the century mark. They die, when they die, of various causes – cancer of various types or straight up bodily failure of functions like lungs or kidney’s. In short old age.
I am just going to get a check up and one thing I want to make clear is to the Doctor is that you better sell me before I will pop a pill or do any procedure. I am also not a very good patient. I tend to push the envelope on recovery time. That said, I really want this thing on my upper abs gone. I have been losing fat since I started lifting but this thing stays the same which irritates me because now it sticks out like a sore thumb. Well, one week and it will be done. I will let you know who it comes out. No rundown this week.
Blessings and Cheers!!!
