Flirted with death all my life.
BackstoryYesterday, I met with a new doctor. My family doctor had recently retired, so in our first meeting, my new doctor wanted to know my medical history. I listed the injuries, broken bones, car accidents, medical procedures and surgeries, number of live births, and medical conditions that I don't consider to be anything out of the ordinary.
It never occurred to me that many people go through life without all these little brushes with mortality until I was asked to list mine.
