The day before my birthday,
I humbly appeared before my CRNP
for my yearly check up.
That's when they reminded me that it's now called an
Annual Wellness Visit.
made me feel old...
Ha! Fooled them, I AM old.
I abhor wellness checks. I put them off as long as I can
(this year it was 2 extra months)
I worry...I toss and turn...I know the routine and for the most part, accept it as necessary.
There are two things that go on during that wellness check that I worry about:
They will accidentally tell me what I weigh...
And a memory check.
It's been ten days and I can remember the three words she asked me to remember:
orange, sofa, cinnamon.
Why do I remember them now, and will remember them all year, but was almost unable to answer her questions because I was repeating and re-repeating them in my head?
Not only did I ace that test, I was able to draw a clock face with the hands pointing at 11:45!
Beth, my CRNP gave me this for my birthday!
I've been mugged!
