So today, I went to see my doctor. This is the first time I've initiated a doctor's appointment in six years. I HATE going to the doctor. Not because I'm afraid or anything, but because I was a sickly child, and then when I was a teenager, my (then) doctor made me come in once a month so he could check my blood pressure, make sure my feet weren't swelling, and ask me how I felt. Yeah, it was ridiculous.

Anyway, so I went today and the doctor asked me all the regular questions. Then he had a look at me and at almost the very end of the appointment he kinda glanced around nervously, looked away a second, and then back at me to ask, "Uh... There's no chance you could be pregnant, right?"

HaHAHAHAHAHA! I got a look on my face and then smiled some and said, "No. There is no chance of that." Haha. I gotta hand it to the guy for being thorough and for not assuming anything. He knows I'm a seminarian, but he asked anyway. My doctor is a pretty cool guy. I really have nothing against him. I've only seen him about three times in the two or three years or so he's been my doc. But, I laughed, though not so he could see. I wouldn't want to hurt his feelings.

He sent me out of there with a CT scan order in hand, and with a whole laundry list of things my pain could stem from. I need to check where I can go for my scam health insurance to cover this. It's been years since I've had a CT or MRI or anything. Good thing I'm not claustrophobic.

Anyway, that was one part of my day. It was fairly long, but all in all, a good day. I'll talk about other stuff later. This post is long enough.
