"So I stay away from doctors the same way I dodge creepy romantic  suitors, only this kind of avoidance has taken a serious toll on my  health…I’m forcing myself to make  two doctor’s appointments within the next week to take care of these  issues. Check back with me in seven days, and if I haven’t fulfilled my  public commitment by then, you’re free to berate me as much as you’d  like. My health is my responsibility, but I’m lucky to have friends who  are willing to hold me accountable for my actions and make sure I’m  making good decisions."
