I ain't goin'

In regards to my headache problems that I've been suffering, I've been admonished to "go to the damn doctor" a couple of times. Unfortunately, I don't trust doc's enough in these situations to go talk to 'em.

You see...each of us has a unique physiognomy. We all will react to different treatments in differing ways. If you've not gone to the same doctor for the majority of your life, then you are seeing someone who is working off of averages to determine what is acceptible in any given situation. For me, that ain't good enough.

I see a scenario where I show up and explain my current headache issues, and the doc responds with a battery of tests. Since I don't regularly see a doc, then my results will be compared against national averages. I'd be prescribed every type of medication from high blood pressure to mood enhancers, just to deal with my little issue. Not to mention the "Drug of the week" (brought to you by big pharmaceutical amalgamated) that treats hives, headaches, vaginal drip, rickets, and erectile disfunction. (Side effects may include: headache, back pain, sexual disorders, anal bleeding, backache, headache (yes, I said it twice), nasal leakage, anal leakage, poor birth wieght, nausea, and depression.)

I Fucking Think Not.

I'll beat this eventually, and I'll be fine without the side effects listed above. This is just a long-winded way of saying... I ain't goin'.

Might not be much to test other than your blood pressure. I was havin' headaches that lasted up to two weeks... never eased while sleeping, or anything. Found out my b/p was a tad bit high.

Ok, So I get it, we all have our own "physiognomy". I just want to let you know, mine's bigger 'en yours.
