Doctor Visit


Talk about one important thing that happened between last Friday and today.

As we grow older, the things that are important become more mundane. Take, for example, my important event that happened this week. I had a number of events that happened to me this week but the most important event was my trip to the doctor. It was an examination for a complete physical that lasted two hours. That alone qualifies it as an important event. It was certainly the longest event.

It was a head-to-toe physical. Screening for Alzheimer’s, depression (yup, that I have and well we knew that), all sorts of exams, EKG, various blood pressure exams, etc. I did have a wart frozen off. That hurt. I actually came out pretty good. When I leave without additional meds, I call it a good visit. I take so many meds now that any time I leave without another med is a good visit. Although we did talk about another med but I talked her out of it since I am on so many meds at this point, my shrink had decided not to try any more meds.

Other events that happened this week were my Tai Chi Class, my Waltz Operetta Class, and Ernie’s appointment with the eye specialist. But non of thise compared with a good check up with the doctor.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.

  1. You’re right. There is absolutely nothing as satisfying as having good results during a doctors visit. Everything and anything runs in my family: Cancer, heart disease, diabetes, depression, etc… so each time they tell me the only thing wrong with me is my crazy brain, I heave a great sigh of relief. I can deal with being nuts. I’ve had a lot of practice! 😉

    Absolutely! When it comes to doctors, no news is good news.
