Few of us enjoy going to the doctor, right? The poking, the prodding, the embarrassing questions, and that’s just in the waiting room! Not really anything we look forward to.
Here’s the thing, though. Let’s say you have an as-yet-undiagnosed problem. Some nagging pain or something you just keep putting off making an appointment to get checked out. Might be nothing, probably IS nothing. But, what if it isn’t? Take it a step further, let’s say it is something serious. It probably won’t get any better without some form of treatment.
You know all that, right? But, consider this. Add in a sudden lack of convenient medical care. You lose your job and with it your medical insurance. Or some natural disaster strikes, leaving you without the use of a doctor’s office for weeks, maybe months. And that pain keeps getting worse, impairing your ability to perform even reasonably simple tasks like chopping firewood.
Don’t put off taking care of medical concerns. If you have health care available to you, use it. There might come a day when that health care becomes unavailable. There is no medical malady where it is better to find it later rather than sooner.
