Meh. I haven't been to a doctor since my neighbor did my pre-high-school-football physical in his den. It's just a lifestyle choice; I'm not big on advocating doctor visits for something that's most likely nothing. But you can advocate all you want. I was just throwing my ideas out there.
Ken, let me tell you a little story: I was 248 lbs. 2 years ago, slightly normal-high BP, 130/90, but not out of control...anyway, I went on a diet, extremely well watched I might add, loosing on average about 2 lbs. a week, and slowed that to a lb. a week after 3 months...anyway, my cholesterol went down from 219 to 179, my bp went to 124/83, in that range and you would have thought that I was the perfect specimen of health having gotten down to 184...well then we had a little move in our company, we lost our lease and had 60 days to get out, well we moved to this big beautiful store I have here now, and guess what, biz sucks, I had only one thing supporting us for a couple of months...you guessed it, Grenson....as the pressure and the tension mounted, I began to feel like crap...more and more everyday...and I like you, hate going to the doc, lifestyle thing...well my wife convinced me she would like me around for a while, so I went . Now, I am on Blood Pressure medicine, my BP was 140/112...the tension and pressures of making a biz make it had stressed me out, and now I am happy I went. Now, it is 124/75, heart is working good, and I have less tension it seems. Moral of the story, you are probably young and healthy, but god man, go to the doctor once in a while, it won't hurt, and it could save you life when you are an old f*ck like me. And some of us cherish the friends from the SF family. Listen to globe, he is a pretty intelligent man.
Kind of odd for a first post IMO.
