or I ask here
The only time we get a physical is when we are new somewhere, like for registration. So, for example, when I was at University I had to enrole at the Health Centre on Campus, and they did height and weight and the likes...and when I got on the scale, the nurse smiled at me and said
"Dont worry...we can help people like you"
...which is nearly as funny as when my Father tried to get himself weighed at one of those silly machines that shout at you, and he put his money in, and got on...and the Machine said
"One at a time please"
It's kinda like taking your vehicle in for a tuneup. It's recommended that you get a full physical once a year to check for anything that could possibly be wrong or could cause problems for you in the future. Your doctor will check blood pressure, take a blood sample, check reflexes, check your chest, check your heart, etc.
