Physical Examination · 7 August 2013

I am excited to have my annual physical examination today. Of course, there will be no cholesterol or other test results for a while, but I am still excited to get my checkup.

In fact, this will be the first year that I have not had some sort of trepidation going into my yearly exam. In years past, I have worried that my cholesterol or triglycerides were high. If that was not the case, some enzyme or other would be out of whack. I could count on it.

Every year there would be something that I needed to fix. Every year I would tell the doctor that I would do pretty much anything to keep from having to take any medications. And every year I would do just enough to keep away from those medications.

This year, I am looking forward to the doctor asking me what I have done to be where I am. And I am looking forward to having great numbers on my blood work. It is the first year in hopefully many to come where I am excited to have my annual physical examination.
