I’ve been very bad about this goal. And I don’t expect to complete it this year. But I do have a molar that is telling me it needs to be extracted, so I’ve made a dental appointment for tomorrow … a first small step toward fixing some of my many accumulated physical ailments.
It doesn’t help that I’ve had no health insurance since mid-2007. It doesn’t help that I didn’t trust my last doctor and would never return to his clinic. It doesn’t help that my eye doctor retired from practice and that my dentist moved his office clear across town.
But those are excuses. Little by little, I need to start taking care of some of the more pressing problems before it’s too late. Things break down if not maintained. That’s just the way the universe works. 6 months ago
