Nurse: So you're still taking propranolol?
Nurse: What's the dose?
Me: Still 160 mgs.
Nurse: And that's for hypertension?
Me: (!!!) Um, no. I have cluster headaches.
Me: Because I'm fat, right? So I must have hypertension?
Her: Not necessarily...I just...it's a beta blocker. And that's what beta blockers are used for.
Me: Mmhmm...among many, many other things.
Her: Yes, sorry! Ok, any other new prescriptions?
I like that nurse. I don't mean to be bitchy at. all. to people like her who have to work day in and day out in a job where they have to watch the doctor they work for look into vaginas for hours upon hours.
But GODDAMMIT. How about if you ASK me why I take the med instead of shoving some random incorrect idea out into the air that's going to hang there like a big neon SIGN that says "you're FAT, and therefore you MUST BE unhealthy!!! Fatty McFatfatFAT!"?
Yes, I'm aware that I have issues. ::sigh:: I'm dealing with them, slowly.
