Here to see the Dr.

I go the the doctor today. It is always an unnerving experience. It feels like a form of gambling, a bet that you can not win, and that you can only hope to not lose right away. It is almost always the same result: I should do more of this and less of this.


The thing about the gambling is that I'm not even really sure how bets are supposed to be made, I neither understand the pieces nor the chances of any of them winning or losing, only that all of them eventually will. I look for large balls that have my initials on them, lucky ones, I guess. I find one initial but not the other. I decide to just go with the one that has a large "X" on it, though it is greatly outnumbered by the "I" balls....
