Re: Sailing as a senior
I've been avoiding doctors since I got to the age where they feel obligated to find something wrong to fix. Their first question is always "What medications do you take ?" when you answer none they give you the fish eye.
Then I tell them about some weird pain I have. And he looks me in the eye and says “So how’s your pee, have a good stream?”
They are like an old pound lizard, they have a set and they stick to it. Don’t throw them off with something weird.
Once the topic came up and my Dr. said that, at that time, for the last 6 weeks 90% of his patients where there for the flu. So I can see that they get caught in a routine.
But it’s kinda neat when the intern says “Gee, I want to have your body when I’m that age.” Also kinda creepy too because I don’t think I’m in really great shape. You wonder what their standard expectation is.
