New E.D. MD

Had my first appt with the new ED doc yesterday. I'm praising Big Brother for GPS navigation, anti-nausea candy, and water-proof mascara, without which I would have never made it to my appt.

A few observations re: said appointment:

1. I had to get weighed in a HOSPITAL GOWN.
2. As in, I wasn't wearing any clothes.
3. And this was weird.
4. I had to get on the scale backward and the scale was like a double-wide with handles and could literally fit a suburban on it.
5. And this made me paranoid.

Why do I need to wear a gown? I mean, what does she think I'm packing?

What's that you say? Ankle weights?
Oh, yeah.
Woops.

Were you really wearing ankle weights or are you just kidding? (I'm dense, sometimes).

Kara, nah. I didn't wear ankle weights to my appt on Wednesday but I'll admit I have in the past to other doctors/dieticians.
