finally went to see my doctor again. he is relatively new. so new in fact that i was a tad surprised when i called for an appointment for my physical last month and found out he was on leave for over a month. the clinic is just brand new and he had only started taking on patients last october.
now yearly exams being the fun that they are was doubly so with an entirely alien physician at the helm. i've been to clinics before and it was usually a case of i needed this or i needed that so i had to surrender to the whole process, but then, say in the case of hassle-free, somehow i felt more comfortable. was it because it was a woman doctor even though she was a lesbian? i don't know. but i didn't appreciate dr. x poking around down there and performing a rather tentative read:deficient exam. and though i didn't want him feeling me all up and all that in the name of science and health care i would have appreciated it if it appeared he was being thorough.
anyway, i digress.
i got into see my doctor and had a grocery list of items i wanted to talk to him about but pared it down to three for the sake of expediency 'cause you don't have all day or even more than a few minutes when it comes to health care. this doc is far better than most that's why i'm sticking with him. he seems to want to inform and even talk to patients about their care. so…apparently i'm not experiencing early menopause….whew….oh, at least he doesn't think so. the jury is still out. so there is no answer why it feels like i'm being set aflame at odd intermittent times of the day and night; my foot needs a podiatrist…check…got a new scrip for the Rx…check…..the weakness and shaking requires further investigation, so off to the lab go i…..check.
