My asthma's been playing up a little recently, and really hasn't taken to the hot humid weather today. I had to see my GP about something totally unconnected, and I thought I'd managed to get away with hiding my grumpy lungs from her. Finished the consultation, thinking I was about to leave, and she turns to me and says ""so, do we need to talk about your asthma now?"" Damn. She'd noticed I'd written everything down so I didn't have to talk much, she'd noticed my one-word answers so I didn't get out of breath talking, she noticed me trying to hide that I was short of breath, she'd heard me coughing in the waiting room, and she noticed the inhaler hidden in my pocket.
Well she gets 10/10 for observation! No point to this post, I was just pretty impressed and I think 'good GP' stories are important to balance out the negatives. And yes, I've promised I'll be good and follow my plan.
