I am having a medical examination today. No, I am not ill. But I am a cancer survivor so I try to have my regular exams.
If you are over a certain age or have a family history of cancer you should talk to your doctor to see if you need to have tests run. This applies to heart disease, diabetes, and any number of physical problems.
You know your body better than anyone else. If you find lumps or bruises or anything else that cannot be explained see your doctor. If your body is not functioning the way it normally does see your doctor. If your doctor advises testing do it.
Most of the tests involve nothing more than a little discomfort and some time. Spare some time now so you will have the time later. Please.
I hear you on that, I am the only survivor in my family. I still work just for insurance.ReplyDelete
Many people hold on to their jobs to keep insurance. i would have too but I was laid off when the economy was at its worst. I decided to just go ahead and retire instead of fighting the lines to try at a chance of a job. I am sorry that you have no others left. It must be hard at times.Delete
Emma, I am over at the farm in Southeastern IA for the winter at least.ReplyDelete
I guess I assumed you lived closer to Nebraska because of your family ties. It is funny the things our minds take for granted with little to go on.Delete
Good advice. It's so easy to delay a test.Delete
That is so true. I still find myself trying to put it off. The testing takes so little time compared to what could be if something were not found in time to take care of it.Delete
