The time is NOW!

I like to think I give advice on my blog that is useful and meaningful.  Some of it is obvious, some less so.  Some is important, some not.  This piece of advice is obvious but critically important.  Which is amazing as so many people choose to ignore it.

As with anything in life, procrastination is a metaphorical killer.  When it comes to your health it is a literal killer.  If you feel there is something wrong the worst thing you can do is ignore it.  To get it checked out is not going to hurt.  The most it could do simply cost you some time.  The best it could do is save your life.

A good example is a small cut on your foot.  Now normally you would clean it up, dress it and wait for it to heal.  However, if after that the would started to hurt more than expected or feel funny, ooze or looks red or starts going green, go and see the doctor ASAP.  If you catch it early you're probably resigned to a course of antibiotics then job done.  If you wait you might be looking at amputation.

This is just one example.  There are thousands and the rule remains the same for all of them.  Until next time, stay well:)
