This is probably more information that you my readers need to know, but what the hell, I’m in the mood for sharing. Basically, every time I go to the doctor for a physical (thankfully only once a year), I get performance anxiety. Despite drinking bottles of water, I have a hard time peeing in the cup. Then to make matters worse, the nurses have a hard time finding veins to draw blood. Thankfully, I only got poked twice today — but this portion of the visit took over an hour and two different nurses. God help me if I ever really have to go into a hospital. The whole ordeal was so tramatic that I almost fainted. Of course, it didn’t help matters that I hadn’t eaten in over 15 hours. They make you fast for 12 hours prior to the exam and 1 hour exam took 3 with all the drama. Thus, I had to sit there and gather myself. Oh well! And to think I use to dread the pap smear portion of the exam. That is now the easy part. Sure it’s uncomfortable as hell but it’s easier than having blood drawn. Goodness! The things we women have to go through. On a positive note, my doctor has given me a clean bill of health.
