Where did the week go? It’s time for another Friday Five.
When was the last time you…
1. …went to the doctor?
I haven’t been to the doctor in probably two and a half years. I used to go fairly regularly, due to a couple of chronic health problems. But, about three years ago, my doctor closed her private practice to focus on emergency medicine. I went to see another doctor only twice, but I didn’t like him very much. Now I am looking for another doctor so that I can get some of my problems under control again.
2. …went to the dentist?
The last time I went to the dentist was almost exactly one year ago. I had my wisdom teeth pulled last February. It wasn’t as bad as I expected, even though I wasn’t as asleep as I should have been. (I have developed a very high tolerance to many drugs.) My teeth straightened out quite nicely as a side effect. I do need to go see a dentist to have some other problems taken care of because, other then getting my wisdom teeth pulled, I haven’t been to a dentist in maybe six or ten years.
3. …filled your gas tank?
I don’t have a car.
4. …got enough sleep?
I can’t even remember the last time I got a good night’s sleep. I have chronic insomnia. It takes me ages to fall asleep at night and I wake up many times. I almost never feel completed rested, even if I nap during the day. Some days I get better sleep then others though
5. …backed up your computer?
Uhhhh… I haven’t backed up either of my computers in ages. I do keep a copy of any important flies on both computers. I figure it isn’t likely that both of them will have problems at the same time. Really though, I have been meaning to back up some of my writing just in case.
