Me (on the phone with my mother): I am pleased to report that Dr. H had a cancellation and will be able to see me tomorrow morning at 9:00.
Mom: Why are you going to the doctor?
Me: The no sleep thing is driving me crazy, and something needs to be done.
Mom: This is the first I’ve heard of your nosebleeds!
Me: I’m not having nosebleeds!
Mom: Then why are you going to the doctor?
On a related note, I had a hearing test on Monday because I’m a little off and I feel like I’m either losing my hearing or everyone is starting to mumble around me. Please know that my eye doctor once told me that a normal person with my vision would not require glasses, but some people are especially sensitive to slight changes and glasses seem to help, regardless of how weak the prescription is.
Audiologist: I would give you an A+ on your hearing, but maybe you’re one of those sensitive people who are really thrown off by tiny changes.
(He then said something about ear wax, and I asked him to stop talking because: Ear Wax.)
