Sucks to your auntie!

I went to the eye doctor yesterday. I like my eye doctor because, like my dentist, he is patient and indulgent when I go "What's that? What's that for? How does it work? What's that? What's that for? How does it work? What's that? What's that for? How does it work? What's that? What's that for? How does it work?" I'm glad now that I've procrastinated for several years about getting new glasses, because my right eye got marginally weaker on this visit, after having remained unchanged for years. So now I can get glasses with an up-to-date prescription. The...

Hello, my flow-ere.

My many many Internet Moms and my one Real Life Mom will be pleased to know that I finally broke down and went to the doctor today. I am pleased to know that - even though my symptoms had predictably cleared up by the time my appointment rolled around - my doctor trusted that I really do have allergy problems. I am also pleased to know that - thanks to the miracle of insurance - a prescription for Allegra costs me half as much as a box of over-the-counter Claritin. Why have I been suffering for so long? Sigh. My...

Doctor, my lungs have seen the dungs through the slow parade of mungs

Alright, fine, you guys win. I made a doctor's appointment. But I couldn't get one until Wednesday, and there will probably be some kind of weather shift between now and then, so that I will arrive with my lungs all free and clear to say, "Doctor, you need to give me something for my allergies. In case they come back. Although they're fine now." Then winter will happen and I will be just fine, then go back into Dying Mode next spring, whereupon it will take me until October to go to the doctor again. Because that, Jamelah, is how...

Giving my doctor the finger

On the fourth of July, I cut my finger while chopping vegetables. I cleaned it up, bandaged it, and went back to work. I cut myself right across the knuckle, unfortunately, so I kept either reopening it or trying to hold my finger completely still so it wouldn't reopen. Then, the following weekend I ran my finger into the bedpost in some kind of flailing incident¹. I happened to hit the same finger and the same knuckle I had already injured days before. The following week, my knuckle turned purplish and swelled up. Just as I was about to go...

Mine eye has seen the glory, now I'm lying on the floor

I've been having some trouble over the past few days with a pain in my eye socket. I had myself convinced that I had a stye or a scratch on my eye that was rapidly getting infecteder or that Scott Baio gave me pinkeye, so I made an appointment with my doctor ASAP. I am rather sensitive about my eyes and that tends to make me panic and expect the worst, so I wanted to nip this in the bud before my eye got so infected it had to be removed and I would have to wear an eye patch...

So anyway, this all sucks

I had a doctor's appointment yesterday wherein I learned that I am, it would appear, a fat old woman trapped in a tiny young body. As she diagnosed me with PCOS and some glucose intolerance (both related to the diabetes that runs in my family), she kept telling me how unusual it was for me to have these problems because they're usually found in obese people who are older than me and "YOU'RE ONLY 25! AND YOU WEIGH 111 POUNDS¹!" Yeah, that doesn't really make me feel any better. I was told for years that the way to avoid diabetes-related...

Real* Stories of the Doctor's Office

I finally went to the doctor to have my malady checked out. I expressed my concerns to the nurse that it could be an infection or pinkeye or a scratch on my eye or Mad Cow Disease or encephalitis or zombiism. She took a look at the inside of my eyelid and decided that irrigation was in order. When I hear irrigation, I think about things like redirecting the Nile in order to water crops. This is clearly the same image that she had, as she seems to have redirected the Nile into my eye. She threw me down on...

Drug dealer

Last week, when I was sick, I made an appointment my mommy made me an appointment at the doctor's office. I couldn't get in until today, and I'm better today. But I figured I'd better go in anyway, just in case. Some background information: I hate my doctor's office. It's actually two offices, full of staff. I've never talked to the same staff member twice, and I'm convinced they don't keep any kind of records or charts on us, because I have to answer the same questions and fill out the same forms every time I'm there. They also screwed...

An apple a day...

Today is my day of doctors' appointments. Oh joy. I started out the day at 8:50 with a trip to the dentist. I pulled up, went into the building, and got into the frighteningly bright yellow elevator. These are the times I wish I had a digital camera. I always feel like I'm going crazy in that elevator and today was no exception. I got in and was given a choice between two floors: 1 and LL. Since the dentist's office is upstairs, I decided that that would be 1. I pushed it and nothing happened. The doors didn't close,...

AMBY?

I have an appointment next Tuesday about my allergies. Every time I go to our stinking doctor's office, I have a different person. This time, her name is Amby. I don't like her already, because when I think of the name "Amby", the following things come to mind: the name "Amber" the name "Bambi" the word "ambivalent" the word "namby-pamby" I'm sure I'll come up with several more by the time I'm done with her. Isn't it horrible for me to be so prejudiced about someone's name? I guess if you're named after hardened tree sap, there isn't much you...

"I'm not dead yet! I don't want to go on the cart!"

I had a doctor's appointment and some blood tests the week before last. When I was ready to leave, the receptionist told me that they would call me within five days and if they didn't call me, I should call them. What kind of thing is that to say? It's a sure sign that they're not going to call. Don't do that. Don't tell me you're incompetent - leave me to figure it out on my own. So I finally called today. "Ann Arbor Necrology, please hold," I heard. What? Am I going to die?, I thought, have they recognized...

I was going to go on...

I was going to go on and on yesterday about my car and how I thought it was frozen to the garage floor, but I don't particularly feel like it anymore. Maybe when I get back to school. I had a physical yesterday. According to the doctor, I am 5'2". My theory is that I drank a lot of water and expanded. Or that whole you're-taller-in-the-morning-and-gradually-shrink-as-the-day-goes-on thing. You know, that thing. The doctor thinks (stop reading here, you're really not going to care and if you do, I'd be concerned) that I have estrogen problems and is putting me on...
