A lot of men avoid going to the doctor unless they've got a harpoon in their eye. But going to see the man in the white coat can keep us healthy and prolong our lives. So today, your task is to make an appointment for a physical to get your awesome man body checked out.

Some insurances (read mine) make preventative care free. If you have a PPO, I bet it's free.
Got this done at the hospital during post-op. Besides the obviously broken ankle, everything was in working order! Check.
I've been to the doctor a few times last month and took a lot of tests. Guess I'm good for another five years.
With the stitch I did today, (shaving accident) I now got free health care for the rest of the year.
I'll have to delay this until Monday.
Yesterday someone recommended a doctor, so I will call Monday and make an appointment.
Made the appointment.
I am lucky on this one as right before I moved back to Michigan I had one of these, and to my happiness, I received a clean bill of health. I always fret about whether the cholesterol levels will come back up but they have been decreasing with the methods that I have been taking: See Why I hate Genetics (http://dadofdivas.blogspot.com/2008/07/why-i-hate-genetics.html) & Why I hate Genetics (An Update) (http://dadofdivas.blogspot.com/2008/07/why-i-hate-genetics-update.html).

I do have to mention that the thought of a colonoscopy just gives me the chills and from what I have heard from those that have to get them (all of us after we turn 40 - so I still have some time), it is not pleasant.

So I will just count my blessings that I am healthy now and we will not dwell on the future and live in the present!
I had a complete physical last year when I switched doctors - however, I am due for a full blood workup, so I'll get that done this week.

I'm going to take a bit of a different tangent on this one - I've been wanting to see a good naturopath for a while now, so this has motivated me to get off of my ass and make the phone call on Monday morning to get an appointment.
Had my physical a couple of weeks ago. All checked out. Cholesterol is down from last year, so I happy about that. Blood pressure is back to normal range. stupid working out does keep your heart healthy.
Physical checkup? Yep, scheduled for this coming January.

Check.  I've also had my eyes checked and a dental checkup fairly recently. 

Going to get one from my usual doctor when I return home in two months.

"P2) The answer to this is increased access and utilization of healthcare over time. P3) See the answer for paragraph 2. P4) It's the existence of choice - we now have the choice to not just "grin and bear it." Sever and/or chronic…"
