My hand is not broken..
You'd think I'd be happier about it right? Wrong! Listen to this:
Doctor: You'll be happy to hear I don't see a break on your x-ray. Probably just a bruised bone or a hairline crack I can't see on an x-ray.
Me: That's not fair. Do you know how many times a doctor has said that to me?
Doc: I'm not sure I follow...
Me: Look if I leave here with a story about a bruised bone I have all the pain and get none of the sympathy. Do you think you could wrap it up to go so I could get a little sympathy?
Doc: You tell them that a bruised bone hurts worse than a break.
Me: No one will believe me.
Doc: Do you want me to write you a note?
I am tired of having these conversations with doctors. Remember when I broke my finger the day of... or wait the day before mom's funeral? The doctor told me it was probably just a chip fracture, nothing he could do. Or the time I jumped off a cliff and landed on the cliff? The doctor said they were probably just hairline fractures, nothing they could do. Maybe the problem is that I feel like a failure. Everyone else can really break bones and I have never been completely succesful. Darn my mom for making me drink all that milk growing up.
