I Don’t Understand People Who Don’t Go To the Doctor

I recently visited my cardiologist.  It was the first time I’d been there in over 2 years.

It’s not as if I was avoiding see my doctor.  COVID kind of put a stop to a lot of my out of house visits.

But I knew that the second I was vaccinated I’d be seeing my doctor.

Which brings me to my lack of understanding about people who don’t see doctors.

If you have a car and it’s on the fritz do you not take it to a mechanic?

Would you not listen to their advice if they told you that you’d need new tires in a few weeks?

If the check engine light went on would you just keep driving with it?

Of course not!

And yet with our own bodies, the most important things we can possibly take care of, we skip doctors visits?

I get it.  People would rather not know and just “live their lives.”

But that’s a crappy perceptive because it could result in living a ton LESS life.

Sure if you waste that time then yeah, you’re doing yourself a disservice, but that’s your fault, not the doctor’s.

Seeing a doctor once every six months to a year isn’t such a sacrifice is it?

Someone please explain this to me.

Just visit your doctor.

Rant over.
