When will I learn. Rule #1: Keep your trap shut in the exam room.
Since I forgot that rule, now I have appointments with a gastroenterologist, a neuro-ophthalmologist, a GI specialist, I must read a bunch of material before having a focused ultrasound treatment and I have to have an MRI on my c-spine in a few days.
What was different this time? Well the PA was really hot. The neurologist, Dr Bortan, is a mom. In the exam she pulled up my socks and nagged me about wearing shorts in winter weather.
The PA, Dr Lawton, asked a question and I couldn't shut up. She didn't need to know about the horse that kicked me in the face 30 years ago. Or that I self-medicate with AHT and Ozone and am planning on red/infrared treatment.
She set me up for all these referrals. There is an old Asian curse; May your life be filled with lawyers. A modern corollary might be, May your life be filled with doctors.
Wearing shorts in winter - Way cool
I now live in Connecticut. These winter wimps don't know what winter is. I lived in Wyoming for 37 years. Most of it is 2 miles above sea level and has snow for 9 months. The Shoshone Indian tribes called it goddamn windy place.
My husband wears his shorts with dress socks and shoes. Now that is wayyyyy cool!
Yeah in the Summer I switch to shorts, white socks and sandals.
