My dad runs a company where he sales equipment for the visually impaired...CCTVs and specialized computers..my hubby is the computer trainer and builder..some acronyms they use on paperwork when hubby is dispatched to trouble calls: PITA-Pain In the Ass, HUA-Head up Ass, FOB: spam Old Bastard, and a couple others...usually when the customer is someone who is stuck in their ways, or dense....(trust me, if it is written the person must have been really bad!) And no the customers never see that paper work...but my hubby will get a call something like this..."Hey Mr Smith cannot get his monitor to turn on. FYI, HUA and will be a PITA. Check the power cord first to make sure it is plugged in properly." lol


When I was 9 months pregnant with my son, hubby and I went in for an ultrasound to see how big the baby was..I had gained 80lbs and was almost 37 weeks pregnant....as I was walking out the door after being told the baby was 12+ lbs and I would be having a c-section the next day I walked out the door, and my OB smacked me on the ass as I passed by.....the other patients in the waiting room couldnt believe my dr was smacking me on the butt...my hubby thought the whole thing was hilarious...mind you this dr is a family friend and I have been seeing him for over 15 years...

I went to a psychiatrist for a psych evaluation and he told me "The only thing that's wrong with you is you are too smart for your own good and you think too much"

My husband and I took our son for his physical (he was two at the time). I am white and my husband is black...he is also twenty-one years older than I am. To the "untrained eye" (LOL) our son looks white. My (black, older) husband started asking the doctor a question about our (white-looking) son's health when our son started saying, "Dada! Dada!" And the doctor responded to him, "I'm sorry, honey, I don't know where your Daddy is." I still get a chuckle from that.

My internist, upon learning of my dx of AS and knowing about all my other health problems that are never quite what they seem, said I was really complicated. I said "so I'm a challenge?". She said, no you're complicated and patted me on the back.

She's my favorite doc!

This just happened last week - I had to go to the eye dr, but mine was out so I saw the fill in. He looked at me and my chart and said "I thought AS was just a man's disease". I told him, well last time I checked I was still a woman and still have AS! He laughed it off, but really??? Where did he get his license from? wink

After years of not being able to find a doctor that I could relate to and not have to explain to him what AS was, I found the perfect doctor. A few years back, I was going through one of my many flare ups, when my husband had to take me to the ER for my doctor to come and see me. This particular flare-up was very different then any of the others, as my right side felt like I was paralized and could hardly move. After about 5 hours of tests and CT scans, and finally getting the pain under some control, the doctor came in to talk over the results with us. He was just about done when he and my husband started joking around about what a mess I was. Which they are always doing and usually I join in the fun. But I said something like...and what can I do about this? This is literally a pain in the butt? He said....I agree. What would you like me to do with him (referring to my husband). Through the tears came laughter!!!! I love my doctor!
