I have had a pain in my side for a couple of months now. Could be my appendix, could be a cyst, could be gas. I don’t know because I have avoided getting the ultrasound my doctor ordered in September.
It’s usually always “nothing” right? It would be a waste of time and money to get it checked out….I am sure it’s nothing. That was my excuse until I listened to someone I love make the same excuses. I spent all weekend trying to convince that loved one to go to the doctor while hiding the fact that I’ve put it off even longer than she has.
Got a tooth hurting? Just wait until you can’t even eat before you go to the dentist.
Feeling stuffy? Oh just wait until it’s full-blown bronchitis…no biggie.
Well, I am ready to make a change. A virtual “putting down of the foot” for my health. I’m hoping it will convince my loved one, and maybe one or two of you to do the same. You got it, I am making my appointment today. On top of getting the dreaded ultrasound, I may actually go to the dentist as well.
Do you put off going to the doctor?
Any self-diagnosers addicted to WebMed like me?
What do you do in the waiting room?
