Today I am getting a colonoscopy. In fact, by the time you read this, I’ll be done with the procedure and will be taking a nap.
They are checking me for colon cancer. I probably don’t have colon cancer, but I could have colon cancer, so they are checking. You probably don’t have colon cancer, but you could have colon cancer, so you should check.
Typically you have to be a few decades older than I am, before they really start the screenings. But, I have a family history and my family history starts young, so at the ripe age of 32, I’m being checked.
Go team me!
Be proactive about your health, people. It’s not just about mental health. I mean with us, we’re all getting ourselves mental help, or should be anyway, but sometimes we get sidetracked from the physical crap.
But you are only as healthy as the full package. You aren’t just a brain. You are a body too, so you have to keep that body healthy.
So today I’m getting a colonoscopy. I’m not saying you should to, unless you are of an age, and then I am saying you should too. What I am for sure saying is, if it’s been awhile since you’ve been to a regular doctor, you should schedule a physical. There is hopefully nothing wrong with you, but if anything is off they can diagnose it before it becomes a problem.
And if you know something is off, then you know you need to go, so go!
