We’re just gonna say it— this is the most important episode of Grown Man Sh*t thus far.
And it all boils down to you, yes you, taking your ass to the doctor. When it comes to being a grown man one of the most important things you can ever learn is prioritization. Your job never comes first but your family and health should.
Besides, #SelfCare is a thing now, right?
When you do go see a doctor, remember that he’s not your girl, so there’s no need to keep secrets from him. Something not feeling right? Tell him. Some liquid coming out of a place that it shouldn’t? Tell him. And please be honest about your sexual health and get tested. Not using condoms seems cool in the drunken moment, but not when you’re sweating bullets waiting for your STI test results. Don’t be scared when the blood pressure cuff gets too tight, that’s what it’s supposed to do.
We know how awkward it can be when someone in a lab coat, in a very, very cold room asks you to drop your boxers and cuffs your balls, but it’s for the best. And the only reason you’re asked to turn your head to the side when you cough is, so you don’t cough in their face, man. There’s one more test that also required you to be naked, but we’ll save that for another episode of Grown Man Sh*t, or we’ll just never talk about it again. Either way, you’ll just have to wait and see.
Go get yourself checked out.
