Doctors...

Josh brought up something in Storytime that I have also realized over the past few years. I don't bring up my mysterious health problems to doctors because I forget to talk about them when I am there in the doctor's office. I know, however, that I really only forget because I don't want to talk to the doctor them in the first place. Certain things somehow seem better left unknown... which is, of course, a really stupid way to feel. People literally die because they put off going to the doctor about a lump or a pain when they first realize it... they wait until it is unavoidable, which usually means it's too late. It's as though somehow if a problem is not actually diagnosed, it doesn't exist. Talk about denial! Anyhow, after writing this and posting it I will probably still not go to the doctor...
