Over the last few years I've seen a number of doctors for things that I never really thought about while living the single life back in Canada. Today, though, I'm heading in to a clinic for the company's required annual physical where I'll get to see the look of abject shock on the doctor's face when they see just how much has changed since the last checkup.
Since the last physical I've managed to lose 16 kilograms, develop bigger headaches, experience dizzy spells, and even have phantom earthquakes every few days. Chinese medicine is a regular part of the diet, now, as are some very traditional Japanese foods. Aside from the occasional Coke Zero1 and chocolate bar, snacks and other prepared foods have been cut from the diet. Red miso consumption is way up, too. All in all, it's a much healthier lifestyle.
That said, I am a bit concerned about what they might not find.
The root cause of the headaches and dizzy spells have yet to be found after extensive blood tests and other doctor visits. The phantom quakes, likely a mental remnant from the Tohoku quake last year, are clearly in my head and a psychological issue that needs to be resolved. The reason for the weight loss is also unknown despite all the professionals who've poked and prodded me. So what might a cursory physical gloss over?
Alas, we'll see what happens. Wonder if it will be possible to get a digital copy of my X-Ray this year. Would love to add one of those to Evernote ...
