2 comments on “Verbal Diarrhea Diaries: Doctor’s Order

  1. As a child I was quite afraid of doctors, especially one who is smiling with one hand behind his back. I became diabetic at age 15, and so started injecting myself daily so that I’m no longer afraid of the needles, and I’ve long since gotten used to the doctors.

    That said, I do not go to a doctor until I’m really sure that the problem isn’t going to go away by itself. Plenty of problems (health and others) do go away if left alone, as they probably weren’t really problems to begin with. I’ve never been fond of what I’ll call “insurance mentality”, in which one can be driven nuts by responding to every tiny problem (or noise, in the case of one’s car) in the belief that one is preventing a much more serious problem.

    As such, that friend you described could easily have been me.

So? What do you think?
