This morning I saw a commercial on TV for Cancer Treatment Centers of America. The guy (a patient) asked, "Do you know all about the type cancer you have? Have you read everything you can about it? Have you asked your doctor every possible question you can think of?"
On the rare occasion I go to the doctor K asks me when I get home, "What did the doctor say?"
"He said to take these."
"What are they?"
"Little white pills."
"What's wrong with you?"
"Well duh! What specifically is wrong?"
"I dunno, but these little white pills will fix it."
K says I should always ask the doctor if he's color blind. She says if he is, and he gets the color of my pills wrong, I'm screwed.
Medical stuff just bores me to tears. I'm a very good 'delegator'. I don't need to know everything about "X" as long as the person I delegate to knows all about it. That's why they are doctors and I'm not. They like that stuff. I don't.
"What have I got, Doc?"
"Gimme the Reader's Digest version."
"Do this, don't do that, take these, pay that."
Why do we always have to complicate things?
(And if that doesn't work, I've asked K to make sure I have The Mother of All Wake's, and you're all invited. ;)
