The drugs she put me on has made a little bit of a difference, when I wake up I'm not exhausted. Instead, I'm a little groggy from the valerian root or the muscle relaxer. I'm told I need at least 30 minutes a day of walking, then she throws this out there:
Dr C. You just need to get out and walk. Do you have a dog.
Me NO, don't get me started I want a dog, but the install cost for us is too much.
DR. C. Well, you should get a dog, they make you get out and walk.
Did you read that, for medical reasons I need a dog. I couldn't convince my insurance to give me a Wii or a helper monkey, but I might have a chance with a dog. Think about it, if they give us money for a dog, it will help me stay healthy and I will not have future medical problems. See nearly fool proof, now I need to get the doctor to write it on her prescription notepad and then do a little fancy maneuvering with the paper work and BLAM free dog.
