Buy 10 GYNO Exams Get 1 Free!

Sara and I were talking last night how I should be getting something free for as often as I go to the doctor. Like one of those buy 10 "appointments" get 1 free cards. Or simply refund what I've spent each month on appointments, fertility drugs and blood tests when I get a BFN?

It's so ironic because when I was 15 or so, my mother started threatening to take me to my first GYNO appointment. I refused! I was not about to let some horny old man check out my girly bits! I was really modest, I think having huge boobs at an early age caused this. The boys were always teasing me so I did my best to keep them covered with big baggy clothes. After leaving home at an early age and being on my own, I was able to put off this right of passage until I was (eeek!) 25 years old. I only made the appointment then because I had stopped having a period 2 years before and obviously wasn't getting pregnant. That's when I found out I had PCOS with Insulin Resistance and Hypothyroidism....the beginning of my medical nightmare.

So listen up young girls (as if anyone reading my blog is a young girl), don't put off or be scared of your GYNO cause you'll end up having to get naked for your doctor at least once a month like me! It's called Karma.

Can't wait to see them! You should post some house pics, inside and such so we can see what you're livin' in.

Of course I guess we might get to see it in June when we come for a visit, if ya let us in.

tom said...

we might.

Jory said...

Tom, the punch cards were retired long ago (I think). "Frequency Program" hehehe, damn we were blatantly inappropriate. Funny thing is, no one knows for sure what we would even be referring to. Oh Tom, the good old days.

i'm STILL owed a couple of punches.
