Dr. X mentioned something in one of his post that reminded me of a subject I have wanted to discuss here and I think it is an important one. There are a couple simple things that I tell people to do concerning their health. One is to keep the body in reasonably good condition, and the other is, listen to your body. I have not always done that and in the long run, it cost me. I always thought my body would take care of itself, you know, you get a bruise, the body takes care of the healing. Break a bone? Get a cast and eventually the body takes care of the rest. But sometimes, the body can not cure itself, can not heal itself and needs help. A flu bug for example, a bad throat, things that need a little boost from the outside. I am still reluctant to go running to the doctor. I finally had to go the first time around but waited too long. This time around I didn't wait and maybe, just maybe, it has given me some more time.I "listened", finally. So where does one draw the line? Everybody is different, no one likes to panic everytime a little pain or itch turns up. Some people run, others have their head in their hands before deciding they better find out why. How do you cope? How many of you feel you may have waited too long, that you should have made the move sooner? I do not want to cause a panic run to the doctor but when the call comes, and it will, how long do you let it ring before answering? How long would you wait?? By the way, I just read that Roger Neilson, Philadelphia Flyers hockey coach, has been diagnosed with MM and is preparing for a transplant. Sure all sounded familiar, same disease, same treatment. God Bless him!!
