I am the OP of the doctor post. I am really healthy as well. But I have hereditary thyroid issues that require medication, which requires an annual exam. I'm also about to turn 50. I don't feel comfortable skipping colonoscopies, Pap smears, mammograms, etc. Yes, I eat really well, don't drink, exercise, etc. But I can't just not go to a doctor for years. I need an eye doctor because I wear glasses, and my prescription is changing as I get older. I was blessed with really good teeth, so that's good. But I still go for a regular cleanings twice a year. Oh, and throw in that I have 2 kids that I also need to get to doctor's appointments.
