Tuesday I had my first real doctor visit since….hell, I was a kid getting the last required Hep B [I think..] immunization. All I know it was three shots spaced out and they sucked a huge one. Sure, I had a CE for my disability file, but that doesn’t count. 😛
The doctor was very nice, a little difficult to understand at times but we worked through it.
I am 5’2 [whee, i grew or something.] and well, I’m healthy weight-wise. I was honestly expecting her to be going me a lecture on needing to eat more. Since it’s all working out, I’m not going to change anything.
Of course the sexually active and pregnancy questions came up. Sexually active? Sure, got no shame nor need to deny that. Pregnant? No, never.
It’s something I can laugh at now, but when I first came out, living in a hetero defaulting society got really frustrating and I would just rage at everything that would forget that not everybody and their uncle is straight.
We talked about putting me on medication for my anxiety [YES!] but she wants to check my labs first to see my liver function [….not so yes.] before we do that. It’s something I don’t have to worry about ’til next month, but I think I gotta reschedule my appointment a second time if I’m for certain going to NYCC.
AUUUGH so much to do, so little time.
But hey, I am doing adult things like making appointments and shit.
+1 for Kitty.
