Visiting the Doctor
If I had a Top Ten List of Things I Don't Like to Do, visiting the doctor would top the list. I understand on an intellectual level the necessity of regular physician calls, but on the emotional level, I see no need at all. You may have gathered from my whining that I had my regular appointment today. And that opens up another can of worms. When I was first diagnosed with CRF, I decided against dialysis and have that in my Health Care Proxy. The last tests showed a huge drop in kidney function. Now that crisis time seems nearer, I wonder if I will stick by my earlier decision. Umm. I see a connection here. That was an intellectual decision; crunch time moves it to the emotional. Stay tuned, folks.
