I go to the doc today for a physical and I am nervously anxious. Don't get me wrong here, I don't have a problem with doctors, I have more than a few friends who are doctors and I respect what they do.
What I have a problem with is my thought process.
First, I go to the worst case scenario. I haven't had a physical in 4 years, due to not having health insurance. That's a long time. Who knows what is happening inside my body. Tumors, disease, etc could be spreading.......ok, I'm a little skeerd.
Then the doc comes in, asks questions, hmmms a lot, makes notes and decides to take some bloodwork, " just to check some things".
Really? Like what? Why so secretive? So I don't freak out? I'm already freaking out, so tell me what I should be freaking out about, and so on.
Then comes the next waiting period, waiting for the bloodwork lab results. It takes up to a week. That's another 7 days of freaking out, without knowing what to freak out about!!
After that, I get the e-mail that says everything looks fine. Really? All that freaking out about nothing? Typical human being.....
Here's to hoping everything is all right.
