Growing up with a hypochondriac, I fear each time something feels wrong. I don’t want to be that person, yet I don’t want to be the opposite. I see people in their retirement years that have health problems stemming to something they neglected in their youth. The typical excuse is “I don’t need a doctor. It’s not worth the money.” I can see this being a substantial reason. I really do, but right now I can afford to go to the doctor, so it doesn’t work for me.
I’m scared to run to the doctor for every little bump and pain. Yet, there are some things that can mean something serious. What if I ignore one of those things. But then isn’t that me being the very thing I don’t want to be?
