Now I have mine checked yearly, I don't want it to be sprung on me.
You should have sent him a big card with one word. CACHING!!!

You wouldn't believe how many times that doctor told me that everything was in my head, not real at all. If he'd had his way I would have been stashed in the nut house a long time ago or dead.

It's really not a gender thing, Addie. Some Doctors just think they are so much smarter than anyone else, that they really have no desire to hear squat from anyone about what *they* think. The Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville saw me for my hearing. The "assistant" did all the testing and when the Doctor came in, he was the type with the perfectly styled hair, aloof bearing, and immediately talked *down* to me. He didn't even give me an exam, but grabbed my arm, walked me to the door and pointed to the hearing aid booth across the hall and told me "That's who you need to see".

What an Ass. I filed a detailed complaint against him with the Hospital Administrator. I'm not impressed much with the Mayo Clinic. They have awesome resources, but their Doctors all think they're special and treat their patients as something less than they are.

Just wait. It gets worse as you get older. They keep wanting to give you tests to see if dementia has started to set in yet.

Man, I was doing some work yesterday and squatted with my left foot in a very cramped spot which caused my left big toe to flex past it's normal limits. I sprained the Dickens out of it and today I can hardly walk on it.

I would like to go a full week without injury. It seems much harder to do than it sounds.

Hey, it hurts like crazy! It's no laughing matter! I'm walking around like Lurch on the Adams family! (You rang?)

Kinda hard on your feet, Timothy? You just got healed up from those nasty blisters. Take care of yourself.
