The inevitable medical problems random conversation...I've hit a milestone
Seems to me there's a point at which you start talking about your medical problems with complete strangers. You see this all the time with 80 year old men when you ask how their day was and they reply with something about their colon.
I went to the doctor today because for the last week I've felt like I got clobbered in the left ear. Water? Nope. Infection? Nope. Stretched eardrum from previous sinus pressure. The treatment: keep the pressure down and wait a few weeks.
So in the meantime, I'm getting my morning fix and talk with another regular who had a sinus infection, and we talk about the hell of not being able to hear properly and all that comes along with it. We of course also talk about how workaholic tendencies tend to cause delays in getting proper treatment. Hey, what can you do? The job needs to get done.
So yeah, I've officially talked about a random medical problem with a nearly complete stranger.
If I start telling y'all about my colon, please promptly kick the crap out of me.
