My awesome doctor

I have been seeing my doctor for 17 years, and she's is pretty awesome. But I may have to change doctors -- she is starting to make fun of me.

At my physical last year, I told her my stomach issues had largely improved since my colonoscopy a year earlier. Ahh, a therapeutic colonoscopy, she replied.

I wasn't sure if she was mocking me or not, so i went home and looked up "therapeutic colonoscopy." Apparently it is a real thinking but only for serious ailments. in other words, yes, mockery.

Later, she asked if I ever used baby powder to help dry myself off. I said I occasionally used talcum powder. I don't; I use baby powder but I couldn't think of the word,  so said talcum.

Her reply: Oh, you're going to get ovarian cancer. She must have realized she was talking to an occasional hypochondriac because she quickly added, just kidding.

Of course, I am just kidding about needing a new doctor. She went up several notches in my book by making fun of  me.

There is no way to live with a disability without having a sense of humor. I like your doctor. Some things are so over the top that you have to laugh otherwise you will cry.
