Tradie Brother is hopeless in some ways. He is your atypical Aussie male. He won't go to the doctor for basic health checks. He hasn't been to dentist for years. He drinks and smokes far too much. His diet his heavily meat based. He recently said on telephone to me, that he does not care if he dies at an early age as he considers he has had a good life. That was somewhat challenging to hear.
His older brother, ABI Brother, is the opposite,with a strong focus on fitness and diet and sees his doctor regularly, as required.
My dyke sister is a large lass but it is all muscle. She is incredibly fit from walks, swims, surfs and cycling. Yet she has the most immediate medical problems.
I go to the doctor regularly and take my blood pressure, cholesterol controlling, low dose aspirin and vitamin D and fish oil supplement as ordered
My diet is quite good, but I am unfit and need to drink less, yet I don't feel compelled to do anything about drinking less and exercising more. There is a lot of things I want to stay alive to see and do things I haven't done, but I am a bit like Tradie Brother. I am not sure I care too much. It might be nice to live to be one hundred years old, but I am not sure that it is for me.
