Today I went to see a dermatologist. I worried if I developed psoriasis just as my father did. The skin on the side of my head has been flaky and peeling if it is too dry. It turned out that I have a sebbhoroic dermatitis, the name’s kinda frightening but it just my skin produces too many oil so I have to use special shampoo for the rest of my life.
I always worry about my health. Sometimes I am working out just to prove to myself that I am healthy. Health is indeed God’s greatest gift. I don’t want to be too religious here, but I saw many families tumbled because of one of its member suffered from health problem. I am afraid if the same thing happen to me.
That gives me the motivation to always be proactive about my health. Not so long ago, I received medical check up results. It said that there is something wrong about my heart that need to be checked further. I made an appointment with my doctor and she said I better see a cardiologist. So I went to a cardiologist to get my heart checked. I did a treadmill test and the result was I am perfectly healthy. I know it costs much to do that kind of treatment or test, but knowing that I am perfectly healthy is priceless to me.
Some people do ignore and deny doctor’s warning and MCU results. They see it as suggestion not early warning. I can tell you a lot of sad stories that start with one ignoring his doctor’s warning and end with regret. I also understand that the truth sometimes hurts. But knowing the truth and prevent worst thing happen is better than living in denial for the rest of your life and end it with a sad ending.
