Trip to the Doctor

Planned Parenthood was recently mentioned in a comment in regards to my Just Hurry up Already post. This reminded me of my one and only trip to Planned Parenthood.

Flashback to January 2006 (the day I adopted little Timmy from the Dallas SPCA *kisses to the pooch**)

I needed to get one of those fun examinations ladies get and PP was open Saturday so why not. I felt cold and uncomfortable dressed in that flimsy sheet with holes awaiting a strange doctor to take a peak into the furry furnace. In walks a young lady, the doctor, and we talk a bit, exchange ill at ease pleasantries and then I lie back, staring at the ceiling.

Staring at the ceiling, I could only think of evaporating into thin air until I heard oohing and ahhing. Already stressed to the max, I panicked with her sounds. “There’s so much color in it. I see some reds, a bit of gray, some black”. I begin crying hysterically, because this routine check up has turned into me having a life threatening disease, some sort of STD, a crazy colored discharge I didn’t realize existed! Terror! Horror! Shock! I was wishing she’d just get to the bottom of it, quit all the small talk and hand me my sentence. Next thing I know, this broad is talking about windmills and, “what does that say?” The doctor wasn’t looking up the furnace; she was looking at the tattoo on the inside of my ankle.

hahahahah oh Stephanie, it could only happen to you. And maybe Mel. You two seem to have the worst luck but at least you have plenty of funny stories for us.

WOW!! I totally wasn't expecting that at all! Would you consider that bad or good bedside manner? :P

No she didn't! LOL. I visited Planned Parenthood one time....shudder. I love what they do and offer to so many, but it IS a creepy place. :-)

@Scott: Although horrible at the time, hilarious in retrospect! Mel has way better (or worse?) things happening to her :P

@MKL: I understand & it's ok... LOL

@Soph: If I can find a pic, I'll post...you can probably see it on Face though?

@Arnetta: Most gyno trips are fairly routing, but this one threw me into hysterics:D

@Omega: I really don't know. All the way around, it's kinda weird. My usual gyno has been known to give me hugs on my way out...He's a strange, strange man.
