I wonder if I'll ever get old enough to not be afraid to go to the Doctor. You never know what to expect.I've been going fairly regularly for over a year trying to get this chassis going again, and yet, I'm lying here with the jitters tonight.

My Doc is a fairly nice guy, and the magazines in the office help me brush up on ancient history. (man, remember "Highlights for Children"?)His staff is actually pretty personable, and they place nice muzak in there.

But it's that element of the unexpected that always gets me. I'd had some X-rays done about 8 months ago that he'd never said a word about. Maybe he was waiting for just the right moment to break the news?

I don't know. It's never as bad as you anticipate.We'll see.


  1. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

  2. Oh great...please let us know what the good doc says!
    If it were serious, would he really wait 8 months??


  3. If you haven't gone yet, then make a list of issues to cover, including the x-rays you never heard about. Sadly, healthcare is all about you becoming your own, best advocate with the doctors you see these days. If you don't ask, no one else will. The doc probably figures the radiologist gave you a reading right after the pics were developed (wrong, I know).

    Good luck.

  4. Doctors and dentists...yuck! I just did a mamo and must wait a week...argh!

    Good luck!

  5. Don't feel bad. I need a new dentist and a doctor & I'm very very afraid!

    Hope yours went well!


I love comments. I won't lie about that!
