The male belief that “nothing is wrong with me health wise” is crazy.
Men don’t realize the amount of emotional and financial damage they cause their families by not following up when they suspect something is wrong.
The male belief that nothing is wrong with me health wise is crazy. My husband’s refusal to visit a doctor early on had a devastating effect on me and my children. They lost a father, I suffered the impacts of an extreme loss.
All of this needless pain was the direct result of his refusal to ask questions and persevere when he knew something was wrong. He put it off and chose to ignore it. His fear of visiting a doctor early on resulted in stage 4 cancer that killed him. Today I am a breast cancer survivor and tell everyone it’s better to say … I got checked vs. saying I didn’t get checked. I pray more men would do the same.
