How the other half lives

I was talking to a friend the other day. I realized I was very jealous. She is a year older than me and she goes to the doctor ONCE A YEAR! That's it. She gets by with an annual check up. I guess I realized that there are people out there like that but didn't think I knew any of them.

This is a prime example of the haves vs. the have-nots. The have-nots have no ailments and are healthy. The haves are privileged to have ailments, a team of doctors, regular daily medications, and multiple medical doctor appointments. I think I would rather be a have-not. I guess I'm jealous.

Today I am not going to the doctor. I already did that this week. Next week I get another needle in my back (oh, joy!). Today I am going to work at my new job. I plan on being productive... and then visiting a friend and then going for a walk and to the grocery store. That's my day.

I remember being a Have-Not. It was way back in January!

Good times.
