    HEY YOU AT THE COMPUTER

    When was the last time you had a physical? I just had one and discovered a few bad things that could have killed me in the long run. But, now the docs have me on the right track and under control! :)

    I had one last September and plan to have another one this September. I hadn't had one in over a decade. My BP was a bit high, not high enough for drugs but something to pay attention to and learn I needed to walk more. Since my triglycerides and chloresterol (sp?) numbers were in the normal range I wasn't advised to change my diet.

    You're very right! As a volunteer fireman I get free physical every year. Last year a friend of mine found out he had a lung tumor and he had surgery to remove it! He had no symptoms and if it went undiscovered for much longer could have been fatal!

    I get one for work every year because I'm a licensed asbestos worker.

    I forgot about the physical I had when I started with my current employer 6 1/2 years ago, the last one before that was in 2000 when I got my CDL.
