Doctor dilemmas

My lovely doctor from the last 22 years has finally retired after a period of sickness (his own). This has meant we have not had a consistent doctor for the last 6 months. Prior to the situation we now find ourselves in, our doctor has been amazing in treating family members for serious illnesses.

I must be honest – I tend to keep away from the medical profession unless I really have a pressing worry. I think I inherited this trait from my grandmother who avoided doctors at all costs. She lived to nearly 103, mind you. So, when eventually I am forced to go, I have tests and usually they can find nothing wrong with me. The symptoms suddenly disappear when I am about to go to the surgery. Does this happen to anyone else?

Anyway, we have had to find a new surgery and a new doctor. I have an appointment today as I have been experiencing weird symptoms, including having a voracious appetite. My best guess from reading on the internet (which is not wholly advisable) is that I have a thyroid problem or diabetes (both run in the family). But, you can bet that as soon as I walk through the doctor’s door, by some miracle I will be cured.

Wish me luck 🙂
