It’s that time of year again..
Time for my annual physical..
It seems like every year the questions get more difficult..
Do you still have your monthly cycle?
Are you experiencing hot flashes?
How are you sleeping? I’m not!
Is that why I am so tired all of the time?
You might also notice increased moodiness and irritability as your estrogen levels start to drop… Is that even possible??
Are your parents still living?? Have they developed any new health problems?
Have you noticed any changes in your vision?? Do you mean having to purchase reading glasses since someone started to make the print smaller on everything!!?!
How much coffee are you drinking??
Wait…Aren’t you going to ask me about my alcohol consumption and whether or not I use tobacco or take illicit drugs??
She must have forgot.
Are you still running?? Do you have problems with your joints?? Is your carpal tunnel acting up?
Are you feeling anxious or sad?? Why, yes, I am starting to feel that way now…
That’s funny, I was feeling just fine before my physical…
