Yearly Examines

by Jean Mollett

Yearly examines,
here I sit in the doctor's office.
Waiting to see Melissa for my yearly
Pap Smear, oh what fun that is. I already
signed in, got called to a close window.
Ask for info, then wanted co-payment. Got
my check back, it's an electronic machine.
We'll call you back in a little while, it
wasn't too long after that, I went in.

Yearly examines,
let me check your weight, your blood
pressure, pulse, rest, here's your cup.
We need a urine sample, to check it. Get
undressed, put on gown, sit on table with
a sheet draped across. I waited it was about
10 minutes, here we go with the breast examine.
Then here comes the Pap Smear, slide down to
the end, lay back. At least Melissa is alot
more gentle and easier on me. It doesn't feel
too good to have that device thing in your
cervix. I couldn't think of the name of it, Then she
has to check inside. Certainly glad that's,
over. But it's important, has to be
done yearly. I got stuck by a needle,
to check my Cholesterol, etc.

Yearly examines,
then it's off to having my mammogram. Oh
what fun having your breast smashed. I have
to take two different angles of each breast.
And keeping your modesty, forget that, it's
like your showing it all. Then one at a time.
Specially if your shy, it's maybe very uncomfort-
able. It's uncomfortabe for me and it smarts
too. I feel sorry for any woman with large
breasts. It will make ya usually sore from
both for awhile. Men should be glad they
don't have to go through this stuff. I
wonder how they feel, when you have to
have your bottom area checked? Sometimes
ya think, surely there's an easier way.
Guess what? There's not. That's over til
next year, thank goodness!!

Author's Note: I've tried to keep my humor with all this. So I can try not be wired from having to go thru it. Oh yes, their favorite thing they say. Now try to relax. Yeah, right. That's easier said than done. Hee! Hee! I guess I haven't lost all my humor yet.
