What I Was Really Telling My GP When I Swore at Her in the Exam Room - Suzette Bishop

    I’m not proud of cursing out a former GP. On top of that, I think she may have been even shorter than me, a very petite and soft-spoken woman.

    I had been going to her for over a year, and I was back for a routine follow-up. I was feeling especially exhausted that day. I must have looked it. She was shocked when she came into the exam room. “You look so tired! Are you OK?” This was “normal” for me.

    The doctor ordered blood tests immediately even though I hadn’t been fasting. My sugar levels turned out to be a bit elevated. Later, I realized it was probably the banana I added to my cereal that morning. A fasting test later came back with normal sugar levels."

    Very disappointed the article didn't quote the swearwords.
