This is a rather confusing time in my life; in fact, it's almost like being a teenager all over again (minus the wonderfully un-saggy skin and quick metabolism). My hormones are shifting. My body is changing. I'm feeling new sensations -- both mentally and physically -- and everything seems to be fluctuating.
Though it may seem like a superfluous appointment in your day, think of the time spent with your doctor as a roadmap to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and increasing longevity. If a once-per-year visit with your doctor can unlock valuable information that will help you make positive changes, what are you waiting for?
