My how time flies when you don't want to go to the doctor
I used to be so good about my doctors visits. Every year, like clockwork, when my birthday rolled around, I scheduled a visit with my doctor. I was always super vigilant about getting "the tires rotated and the oil changed." Somehow I fell off that bandwagon.
I'm not sure how it happened but when Hailey went to see her OB, who is also my gyno, I said to the nurse, "When did you guys move here?" She looked at me like I was from another planet and said, "Several years ago."
Has it really been several years since I've had my tires rotated? I went home and looked on the paper with the results of my last blood work and the date on it was 3/17/2009. Holy crap!!
In my defense ( cause it can't possibly be my fault) I was trying to find a new family doctor and the woman I went to made a rude remark that offended me and she appeared to be trying not to laugh through my whole visit. There's more to the story, but I'll leave it there.
Anyway, I got a little pissy about it and just never went back. So now, five years later, not only do I need to go to the doctor, but I'll be 50 this year. I think you know where this is going.
So today I'm going to a new family doctor to get a physical and all my blood work done and also a referral so I can get my boobs smushed and my bottom violated.
Doesn't 50 sound like it's gonna be fun?
