The Visit Yesterday

Yesterday the doctor he asked me a lot of questions.

“You don’t smoke right?”

“No.”

“Are you ever depressed and gloomy?”

“Not since I met my friends at Pfizer a few years ago.”

“Is you sex life good, any problems there?”

“Well, I can only speak for myself, but my sex life is great. You might want to ask Gigi though.”

“Do you sleep through the night and wake up refreshed and rested?

“Heck yeah!”

“Overall, how do you feel?”

“I feel good and energetic. More so that when I was a teenager.”

I got to thinking how lucky I am. I do feel better now both physically and mentally that I did when I was a teenager. I hated being a teenager. The 20’s weren’t a lot better. There were a lot of hormones working against me and my better judgment.

I do have aches and pains now associated with my age, and not as much stamina as when I was in my 20’s, but by golly I feel good, and mentally, well, I’m on vacation. I am happy.

Then the doctor asked if I travel outside the US and Canada.

“Yes”.

“Then the CDC recommends that everyone get a hepatitis A vaccine.”

A nurse came in and made me read a plastic covered piece of paper with all the side effects of the vaccine, including mild flu like symptoms. Then she gave me the shot.

Today I feel like I have a mild flu. I get to have a booster in December. After that I guess I can lap water out of rain puddles and be okay.

Sorry you feel bad today.
I should probably get the shot as well.
