Yeeeeeesss, I went to my yearly exam yesterday. I hate them. I hate dr’s in general. I am not sick! I just want my prescription. “Well, we can’t fill it unless we see you. We have to make sure you aren’t having complicaaaations”. I’ve been on the same dang pill for 17+ years! Ya think if there had been complications they would have come up by now, dontchathink??? I do have to give CO dr’s credit though. They were much much much less nosy than FL dr’s. Name, DOB, address, answer a few quick questions, and you’re in and out of there. So they’re suspecting I’m pre menopausal, but since I had that odd period “it’s office policy that we do a pregnancy test” (I miss my wtf emoticon) I’m 47 years old, haven’t had a good period in 11 months, and then I get one random big mess, and bleed for *~eight~* freakin days like a gutted animal, and you ~think I might be preggers~????? Oh wait, no, you’re just trying to tack on $10 here, and $20 there, to pad the visit. Amirite? So then the dr did regular pap smear crap, and then pinched pieces out of my uterus for other testing. Because you know it might be pre cancerous something. So now I might get the wonderful call that “hey, you have pre cancer and should start shoving all these pills in your body…. but it could just be pre menopause…. but we just wanna be safe, and give you all these meds.” MMmmmm, no thanks. So now I sit and wait for the wonderful bill from the lab rats, and maybe they can get me to pay a few thousand to pharma too. Whhheeeeee! “And at the very very least lets try and work with the mammogram people, and get ya in for your yearly boob squish for absolutely no reason whatsoever.” Just because you don’t have a family history of any kind of cancer, doesn’t mean we can’t get that ball rolling for you by exposing you to radiation for the next 40 something years!!!! Whhheeeeeeee!
So there ya have it. My yearly (or bi-yearly) dr rant. Thank goodness that’s over with! sheeesh
