Why Men Won't Go To The Doctors?
Now, I want to hear your take on why men will not go to the doctor. It seems along with myself, many women complain that the men in their lives refuse to see a doctor, even when they are experiencing symptoms or feel ill.
Is it because they will feel weak, less manly if they go to the doctors? Do they not want to know if something is wrong?
I can't even get my son to get his yearly exam for two health issues. I get the 'eye roll' and the 'shoulder shrug'.
There are a few men I work with that obviously have a health issue, but will not go or go back to the doctors to receive treatment. It boggles my mind.
I understand that we all are fearful sometimes of what the doctor may say, but isn't it best to find out and take care of an illness before it is too late?
Us women take preventative care and in most cases, I believe it saves lives. I know we hate to take time out of our busy schedules to make an appointment, but...we do it. What women likes to go have their breasts painfully squashed during a mammogram or go see their Gynecologist? Um, they are not pleasant visits...
Men you are no different. You are not indestructible. Taking preventative care is important for you as well.
Men's Health magazine posted a guideline to follow. On my blog, Mind Body & Soul, I posted their recommendation. If you men aren't interested, Women...go take a look and see if you can't get the man in your life to take care of himself.
Believe it or not, we women want you around for a long, long time...
