A man hasn’t been feeling well, so he goes to his doctor for a complete check-up.
Afterward, the doctor comes out with the results. “I’m afraid I have some very bad news,” the doctor says. “You’re dying, and you don’t have much time left.” “Oh, that’s terrible!” says the man. “How long have I got?” “Ten,” the doctor says sadly. “Ten?” the man asks. “Ten what? Months? Weeks? What?!” “Nine…”
This is one of the most common jokes on the internet today, but it has some elements of truth in it. Sometimes we take our health so lightly until it is too late. But the best part is, all of it CAN be avoided. Do you dread going to the doctor’s office? Are you always procrastinating about making that doctor’s appointment? Sir, madam, WHY? Other than knowing your health status and building a good relationship with your doctor, here are a few other IMPORTANT reasons to visit your doctor.
- For Prevention, Protection, and Peace of Mind.
Many Nigerians have underlying health issues that do not manifest until later years, at which time it is too late. With the average Nigerian hustling and bustling to get their daily bread, most do not have the time or resources to visit the doctor. Health protection and prevention is the key to staying healthy for the long haul. From simple blood tests to vaccines, your doctor can help you become the healthiest version of yourself. Although it may seem like a hassle now, one hour in a doctor’s office now can add years of health to your life. Please, take some time during this holiday season to go and check your vitals; see if anything needs monitoring. Who knows, you might be saving your own life.
- To Maintain Your Body
Wouldn’t you be surprised if your body weight fluctuated every three months, or if you noticed a pattern with your skin outbreaks? Both of these could be a result of underlying health issues, like blood pressure or diabetes. A regular visit to the doctor’s office can be like a system of checks and balances.
- To Keep Your Mind in Check
Did you know that being a female is an independent risk factor for depression—and that women are more than twice as likely as men to struggle with depression over the course of their lifetime? Many people don’t even know that they have the symptoms of it until it is too late. Health is not just the absence of diseases, but mental, physical and spiritual well-being. A mental health screening can help you realize what is wrong before it is too late.
