Hello, my name is Walter and although it might sound silly for a grown man to say this, I was afraid of my doctor. I live in a small community in Western Australia with my wife Sheila. For many years, Sheila was always telling me to book an appointment with the doctor for a health check-up. I was worried about the test they would do and didn't want them zapping me with X-rays or sticking needles in my arm. Last year, I overcame my fear and went to the doctor. He was really nice and it wasn't scary. He also helped to treat my sore feet. Since then, I have been reading a lot about medical matters. I decided to start this blog to encourage others to visit their doctors.
