Will be going for a blood test tomorrow morning…my first in two years.
Yeah, some people does it twice a year (like my late dad, who had a bit of a hypochondria problem) or once a year but it’s every two years for me (if I had it my way, I’d probably skipped it for another couple of years).
I’m not exactly big about doing blood tests. Not that I’m squeamish about blood and needles…I just don’t like knowing what’s wrong about my body and my health as I like to really be blissfully ignorant about it. There’s really nothing fun about knowing that your health’s not all that good and it just makes life a little less pleasant and boring since I’ll have to restrict myself from doing things that I like to do – like eating, staying up late, drinking Sprite (I can’t live without drinking Sprite at least once a day!), my precious junk food… It’s a miracle that I ain’t obese.
Thank heavens for having a high metabolism rate…and the fact that I tend to have very active sweat glands.
Nevertheless, my philosophy when it comes to my health is this – Fuck it!
If my cholestrol level’s high, fuck it. If my cretinine level’s high, fuck it. If there’s a blood anomaly, fuck it. I just don’t want to know. If I’m fated to die, I want to just die and be done with it. Without worry. Without anxiety. Without fear. Ignorance is indeed utter bliss!
I’m only doing this blood test thingy because my mom asked me to. She’s making a fuss about me losing my previous blood test report. If I hadn’t lost it, I wouldn’t be taking the blood test. Go figure. *Note to self: Start keeping folders to file important personal documents so they’re not just chucked away in my paper-loaded drawers.*
Well, I’m not worried about what the blood test results are gonna be. I’m perfectly confident that I’ll be stamped with a clean bill of health. Heck, I’m as fit as I can ever be!
Do remember to check back this blog if you’d like to know the results of my blood test.
P.S: Let’s have a poll – When was your last blood test? Do leave your comments. I’d like to know how many people actually pay attention to their health. Thanks!
