Now into the nurses office, "Hi, Mr Marcer, take your shoes off and shirt and have a little lay down on the bed for me" where the hell is this going now? but I'm OK, just breath dude. Out comes a razor and she starts shaving my chest hair, this is just not on, it's all a bit strong, I mean it's just not appropriate, I have just been violated and now you're are shaving my chest, where is this going to end? "Just relax, we are just going to attach an electrode here and there" an electrode here and there, I look like a Christmas tree with nipples!!!! so fuck it, I'm just gonna get through this. So after 10 or 15 minutes of laying there I'm getting a little sleepy and comfortable she says I need to now get up onto a treadmill and with all this shit attached to me, I need to run my violated ass off, I mean that's a bit extreme after all this was a routine blood pressure test... well at 160 beats a minute my heart is about exploding in my chest, I am sucking air like an asthmatic she finally says "ok you can stop now and lay down on the bed." That's if I can even get to the thing without passing out or puking up. 20 minutes after that I find myself back in the Dr rooms as he checks out the EKG... all's well he says, heart looks good no problems.... I bet he says that to all the boys. But you really need to have your retinas checked, here is a letter, just pop over the road to another Dr and he will do this checkup for you.... Thankfully I could only get an appointment for next Monday, what a relief, I can now go home happy in the knowledge I'm relatively healthy, even if it took all that to find out.
One last thing.... I have to do it all over again next year, and every year thereafter.... Oh fucking joy!!!!
Blood pressure my ass
