Yeah, I think I need to go to the doctor with this, what every it is. I'm constantly short of breath, lightheaded and Now I'm getting stomach pains as well. It's been going on for a month now, so I think that's enough time.

I haven't been to the doctors in five or six years, though. I'm not sure if I'm still registered where I was. Hopefully they'll still have my records. If not, I might as well try to get registered near where I current;y am - trouble is, when registering you need to prove you're a local (it's a local surgery. For local people.) by showing a bill with your address on it - but of course, I don't pay the bills, my landlord does, so I might have trouble signing up.

I'm always concerned when I go to the doctor - when I was a kid, the doctor I had was very short with me, despite the fact I was in quite a lot of pain from my ear - seemed to think I should have known it was the nurse who did ear syringing, without talking to him. Later on, when I had a kidney infection and was pissing blood, he was equally bad tempered. I got the feeling that he resented me wasting his time with my illness. It's a different doctor this time, but I get nervous. I've always hated the 'you're wasting my time' look that I got a lot as a kid.

Still, I suppose the worst they can do is call me a hypochondriac, say I'm perfectly fine, and send me on my way. I do worry a lot about the state of my health, but I try to avoid talking about it, because of all the boring things to go on about? I have enough ways to put people off talking to me without that.
