The Low End of Normal

I have had my share of aches and pains. Or course I don't have any serious diseases, and I probably really only suffer from a bad case of whining. But every once in a while I decide that an ailment is significant enough that I want to get tested for something and see if my aches are real or only imagined. Almost invariably my test results come back showing that my levels for whatever we were testing for were on "the low end of normal." Whatever does that mean? Is the low end of normal really the high end of abnormal? What in the world do I do with that? Maybe for me, the low end of normal isn't really normal at all. Maybe I am doomed to a life of "low end of normalcy." I guess that is how I feel most days! Isn't there something for those of us who continually find ourselves on the outermost ends of the bell curve? Maybe I will start a club. I'll call it the LEON (low end of normal ) club. Want to join?
