Come to think of it, I'm not sure that this truly IS the old-fashioned way.
This is actually a little good though, because (here's a strange factoid) I have a bug bite on the tip of my left middle finger. I must have gotten it in Canada yesterday. (Always blame Canada.) But it's right where I type! It's been quite annoying all day -- after all my job involves TONS of typing.
Now my thumbs are getting a little tired tho. I could have pulled out my portable keyboard, but of course then there'd be the whole Canadian bug-bite issue again.
So anyway, I did start to chicken out, but then I came up with a compromise today. I didn't visit my doctor, no, but I made an appointment! For tomorrow! It's a step in the right direction at least.
Today I kept talking myself out of a visit, then talking myself back into it. I keep thinking I'm feeling better, then maybe not, then, well, I don't know. I hate going to the doctor... But then who doesn't?
I still feel off-balance, though it might be a bit better. Or maybe I've just talked myself into feeling better. I'll go tomorrow, almost certainly, unless I'm magically better.. And it'll all be fine, and maybe they'll give me something to make me feel better! With luck.
