I really hate doctors. I’m not scared of visiting the hospital or anything; hell, I used to work in one. I just think most of them are a-holes. They may provide an essential service, but too many of them seem to think that their job allows them a condescending God complex, with a dose of narcissism on the side. The best part is quite a large proportion don’t know what they’re doing most of the time, and will literally Google your symptoms in front of you (and then get the diagnosis wrong).
One thing I will admit they’re right about is that prevention is better than cure, if we can help it. There are the boring ways of doing this, like eating healthily, exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep. Another important factor, though, is our level of happiness. This is perhaps the hardest thing of all to maintain, but there are plenty of small things that contribute, like looking at memes. We may be upping our screen time, but at least they allow us to crack a smile now and then.
