I’ll be seeing the doctor sooner than expected.

Not that this should come as a surprise to anyone, but I’ll be scheduling the appointment next week…

…well, unless matters make me seek more emergent care.

I’d rather see a doctor and be told that it’s nothing major (or even “minor heart problems”, as though there were ever such a thing) than ignore something until it gets to the point where it can’t be treated. A history of heart problems run in my family. When my mom was my own age, she had to have a pacemaker put in and started to need aneurysms to be clipped. And even if it is my time to pay the piper on heart problems, I’d rather start treatment for those early on when more can be done about them… if I have the choice to do so.
