A Reluctant Doctor Visit

“I do not feel right,” thought Meg. She tells her friend, “I am tired each day. I am thirsty all the time. I just am not myself.”

“I agree,” says Norm, “I think you should see a doctor.”


“I am afraid to go,” replies Meg, “He may find a disease.”


Norm says, “I am afraid for you too, but I think it is better to know what is wrong. Then you can get help.” Meg thinks about what Norm said. She decides to call the clinic. Her visit with the doctor is in four days.

At her visit, Meg learns that she has diabetes. The doctor says, “It can be managed by diet and exercise. If that does not work, we will try other ways.”

Meg is not happy about the news, but at least she now knows what is wrong. She hopes to feel better by doing what the doctor says.
