I found it rather peculiar how easy it was to get into my specialist the other day.
As I talked to her at my appointment... I was sure to draw this observation to her attention.
She told me I was part of the brave and the few.
Most people refuse to come in with the holidays nearby. The schedule fills around January as everyone prepares for self-help, and maintenance. She told me how no one wants to hear they need to go on a diet, or they have something wrong just before celebrating the holiday's with family.
It's this facade they put up: as if not going to the doctor's will somehow make the season less "stressful". I found this observation extremely intriguing.
Who knew you could be brave for going to the doctors before the holidays?
