I go to the doctor a lot. I mean, a LOT. Probably way more than you. In the last four months, I’ve been close to 10 times. I go at LEAST four times a year just for my diabetes doctor. Then I also have to go to the skin doctor, the eye doctor, often I have to go to the diabetes doctor more. You get the point. I spend some time in doctor’s offices. And recently, because of a light touch of the crazies, I’ve been going to a psychiatrist.
So you’re probably wondering what I’ve learned from all of this time in doctor’s office waiting rooms. Well, the answer is that the future is bleak. We are all going to get old, and it is going to be unpleasant. In fact, if you are in one of these waiting rooms as much as I am, that probably means that your best years are already behind you. But basically you are going to get old, ugly, weak, and fat. Sorry to break it to you. That’s just how it is.
But the psychiatrist has opened my eyes to a whole new kind of thing that will happen to you. You will lose your mind. Oh yes, the psychiatrist waiting room is the worst. You see the old people wheeled in, and they don’t know where they are. You see the people with their elderly parents, and the parents are asking “Why am I here? Do you think I’m senile?” Oh, the parade of delusion.
I guess, then, my advice is this. If you aren’t yet going to the doctor as much or more than I am, take advantage of your life. Go out there and enjoy things. Because seriously, it is going to get much, much worse. I have seen the future, and it is dark and ugly.
