A Wife Loved Like The Church

Posts Tagged ‘Avoiding the Doctor

Top Ten {Tuesday}First, let me clarify: I think doctors pretty much rock. If it weren’t for doctors and scientist {which at times are one in the same} we wouldn’t have all the amazing health treatments that we have. And for that I am totally grateful. But still, I really, really dislike going to the doctor. Why? Well, pull up a chair and I’ll tell ya.

1. I’m a know it all – Rarely do I go into the doctor because something is wrong and I don’t know what it is. So going seems like a waste of time.

2. I don’t actually know it all – Last time I checked {which was today, actually} the only initials that come after my name are m.o.m. and not M.D. Crazy, right?

3. House – I fully blame my anti-doctor policy on the t.v. show House. Cause we all know, when you go to the doctor with a “common cold” you walk away two weeks later healed from some crazy unpronounceable disease.

4. My mom’s a nurse – And as such, I feel exempt from ever having to see the doctor. It’s like my free-pass in life.

5. Old habits die hard – I had this really fabulous doctor in Iowa, who, 3 years ago, up and left her practice to move to another city {where her husband was moving}. Since then, it’s never been the same for me. Amy L – if you ever read this – please move to Austin.

6. Doctor + 2 kids = disaster – I don’t like taking my girls for their check ups when I’m fully with it. Taking them when the appointment is for me? No thank you.

7. I’m pregnant – Therefore, I assume they can’t actually do anything {or give me anything} and my time will be wasted {another reason to dread #6}.

8. I’m stubborn – See #1.

9. I have an overactive imagination – See #3.

10. I don’t like to admit defeat – But after 2+ weeks of coughing, sneezing, and nasty-nastiness coming from my nose, I’m waving my white flag and heading to the doctor today. Wish me luck.
