Sometimes I have absolutely no courage. I just cower in my own little corner in my own little world and try to live that way. Well, no more I say! I have an aversion to doctors, but who doesn’t? Shamefully I haven’t been to a gastroendocrinologist (what I affectionately call the “butt doctor”) for way to many years. For those of you who don’t know, I have Crohn’s disease…it effects your intestines. I will save you the dirty details. About 6 weeks ago I “manned” up and made an appointment. Today that appointment was to be had and of course I was just fretting all day about it. You know the old saying…just rip the band aid off? Well, I did, and for once it didn’t hurt. It was just a simple check up and assessment (with procedures to come later) and wasn’t bad one bit. So if you are lacking courage for something in your life…”woman” up and do it! It just might not be as bad as you think!
