Random thought going through my head this morning:
A number of years ago, I was with a nurse who conducted the preliminary ‘interview’ (for lack of a better word) in preparation for an annual physical with my doctor.
Side note: my doctors don’t really do traditional physicals here anymore today; instead, they suggest that if there’s a concern, to book some extra time (more than the standard 10 min) so we can have a chat.
But back then, perhaps five or six years ago, they had the nurse do the prelim talk with the patient and she made notes to pass on to the doctor for later.
The topic of depression came up. Isn’t everyone depressed at some point? I struggle with it too, but I’m not sure if I’m clinical. I’ve only been on medication once for a short time, to help me with an increase in stress at a time in my life when I was on the verge of packing my bags and moving to anyplace but here…(note, this was right before a major renovation). I was beyond stressed at the time, no one was getting along, the kids were maniacs, the sports out of control, money was an issue (isn’t it always), cars were dying…anyway. I had it up to here, and went to book a physical and contemplated asking for some meds to help me get past the next few months.
The nurse was really nice. She doesn’t prescribe meds, but made a note in the folder to advise the doctor of my request.
But she did have a suggestion. She said:
Have some really good orgasmic sex.
😂 😂 😂
That was the first time a medical professional made such a suggestion to me. 🙂
Is this the way things are supposed to be cured now? lol
So tell me, do you get unusual advice from your med staff? Or is it just me? 😉
