Getting Old

It's really hard for me sometimes,particularly when it comes to going to the doctor about ailments.
For the past three weeks my  right foot has been giving me problems and I just plain refuse to go to my doctor or even the ER to find out why it was hurting.
I knew in the back of my head I had a doctors appointment today so I just put my foot issue off until today.
When I went this morning for my yearly exam the doctor jumped on my case like white on rice for me putting my swoolen foot issues on hold for three weeks.
I pride myself on never missing a day of work unless I'm half dead,as a matter of fact I don't like missing work because I simply like what I'm doing most of the time and most of the people I deal with.
But the doctor busted my bubble today and put me on a medication called,Cephalexin and bed rest for five days.
Needless to say Bigmac is not a happy camper!

Wow, BigMac. Take care of yourself! Listen to the doc! Work will be there when you are better.

I was concerned for a minute, but the med is usually for a bacterial infection. That's good - and treatable. Well, enjoy the break.

Thanks Kit,I'm already seeing a reduction of the swelling.

No bout a doubt it, getting older suuuuuuucks! The body has a painful way of reminding us of that fact, whenever we forget or get cocky about ourselves.

Hope the meds do their job!
