Get Checked Out

 

Have you ever had that little twang, tweak or itch that just won’t go away?  You know it’s there and it’s not supposed to be but you keep putting it off because you don’t think it’s causing any real damage and it will go away or maybe it was just over exerted yourself the day before. Why wonder? Just go to the doctor and get it checked out.

Would you rather pay $35-50 now or $10-100,000 later? We are in the age of modern medicine with all kinds of technological advances. In other words, if there is something wrong, and it’s caught early enough, there is more than likely a cure for it. You just have to actually go to the doctor to get checked out.

I know that this is something that men don’t like to do. I am included in that bunch. I hate going to the doctor but I still go. I am a type 1 diabetic and I get a check-up every 6 months to ensure that everything is working and doing what it is supposed to be doing.  You take your car in for routine maintenance work right?  You are careful about what type of gas you put into it right?  Your body shouldn’t be any different. You should be mindful and careful of what you eat and also go to the doctor to proper maintenance.

I know what some of you are thinking. You are thinking how can I go to the doctor if I don’t have any insurance? I really can’t afford it.  You can’t afford to be sick either. There’s a little thing called the Healthcare exchange program that provides insurance for people in just such a case. Check it out and get some insurance. If you have insurance and are paying a premium on it every month, use it.  That’s all I have to say, sorry for the rant but preventative medicine can save money and lives.
