“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple” – Dr. Suess
Saw the lady doctor today. You know, the doctor that checks your lady bits?Â Its been a while. I have been a bad bit checker. Chalk this up to my divorce, house sale, moving, etc. My own personal health tends to take a back seat on my ride of life. I am working on improving that.
Anywho, bits checked out just fine.
But I must state, again, it never gets any easier answering questions on medical forms.
For example, the question “How many children do you have?” consistently sends me reeling. I have answered that question a gazillion times over the years (always honestly, I have three children) but it always sets me off kilter.
Answering (honestly or dishonestly) tends to lead to additional questions.
“How old are your children?” the lady bit checker doctor asks.
I gasp for air for a second, stutter and respond.
“24, 12 and 7”
“Wow, quite an age range” remarks lady bit checker.
“Yeah.” I mutter as I secretly pray the questions stop there.
Questions turn to my rather frightening family history of colon cancer and my own recent scare. My breathing gets easier. My heart rate slows.
Sad when you are more comfortable talking about colon cancer than your children.
Thank you adoption.
