Last night, I went to bed with a headache. It's a dull pain that radiates from a patch on my scalp above the right ear. I experienced that same headache a week ago, blaming in on the onset of a mild flu. Well, today I'm feeling a little sniffy again. No surprise really because both my sons are feeling a little under the weather and were rolling around on my bed last night.
CH reminded me that it's time I go for my long overdue health check. Given my mum's medical history, I really should heed his advice. My mum suffers from hypertension, had a hypothyroid condition and had her womb surgically removed years ago. Most recently, she had undergone radiotherapy for acoustic neuroma, a non-cancerous brain tumour. It also started with headache and dizziness.
The truth is, I'm afraid of going for a physical. What if I am less healthy than I think I am? I know I'm in denial but I choose to think I have my dad's genes, afterall I have inherited his looks and physique.
To allay my fears, CH has offered to accompany me but first, he must find a way to drag me out of here.
