3x Thursday

Time for me to get back to answering these 3x Thursday questions. I've missed about three weeks' worth.

1. Do you go to the doctor (health doctor) for regular check-ups? Is it important to you? Why/Why not?

I go to my ob/gyn once a year and have my mammogram done once a year as well. I was going every six months so they could ultrasound a mass in my right breast but it looks like it's nothing malignant so I'm back to yearly mammograms. Those yearly checkups are important to me. Don't want to end up dying from female problems after all.

2. What about dental check-ups? Do you take care of your teeth? Do you like going to the dentist, or do you go when your teeth are falling out of your head?

We were without dental insurance for so long it's been many, many years since I've been to the dentist. Mike has started going regularly because we do have good insurance now but I'm afraid of what they'll discover. I know, I know, go to the dentist.

3. Do you get your eyes checked semi-regularly to make sure you aren't going blind?

Being a wearer of glasses I end up going every couple of years for an eye exam. I can go once a year because that's what our plan calls for but I often slack off unless I notice I'm having a problem seeing.

Bonus Question for Comments: Do you have medical insurance? Why/Why not? Is it important to you? We do have medical insurance through Mike's work. It's very important for us because we're getting older and more feeble and we've got two kids. Insurance is a must when you have kids. It sure came in handy during last year's gallbladderpalooza too. Not to mention Cal's birth. We did Duncan without insurance and that was tough.
