I always feel like a hypochondriac when I go to the doc. I usually go at best twice a year to the doctor, so when I do I want to issue every concern I have- I mean I don’t want to come back.
I’m the same way about my car. I used to travel every week making car maintenance very tough. Hard enough to find the time for multiple quotes let alone to drop it off and pray I get a loaner. Now I schedule 1 day and ask for the world.
Am I getting ripped off? Calling wolf? Maybe. Do I feel like no one is taking me seriously, yea. But at least I can’t say, fuck I wish I would have had that checked earlier…
I got a girly exam, tho insurance companies now say you only need to do it once every 3 years, the fact that I’ve already had to have pre-cancerous cells removed from my girl bits tells me- fuck you insurance, I want a doc to stick their finger up there and tell me it’s all ok regardless. So, first thing this morning, do you know you had one last year? Yes bitch! You think I can’t remember a year ago? F off!
Next, I want blood work. Check things! Ok. I don’t know for what but I get blood drawn. And do I want a flu shot? Of course I do! Also, let me tell you about the Charlie Horse I had last month… is my muscle torn, so you think it was a clot…. am I dead?
Ok I didn’t ask if I was dead. But… I understand how the doc is prolly like, this bish is cray.. but are you sure you did a throughout breast exam? These Breast cancers can escalate quickly and I’m not planning on coming back anytime soon!
I dropped my car off at the dealership for a break job. I never asked to look, they just replaced pads and routers. Then again it was 86,700 miles on one set of pads. Pretty damn good!
I also got a wheel alignment, balance and rotation, new battery… you know just do it all. Then my headlights were dim and I got nervous my bulbs were dying. Nope, just the “running lights”. Ok.
$1000 later my car should be good for another couple Thousand miles. I’m leaving for Madison tomorrow but instead of cleaning or packing… I took a 2 hour bath.
Now I must sleep… sigh.
