Laura, those things those doctors and nurses said tops all the dumb things I think I have ever heard in my life. Its kinda scary itsnt it, our very lives are in these peoples hands. Frightening.
Well my dumbest doctor statement to me was (and this was at the beginning when I was still 5'9 and weighted about 145-150 ls. As he stared at my chest the entire time he was talking to me and said to me"you need to losed weight and swim, then you will be fine", and he was a neurosurgeon. My answer to him was, "they dont talk (meant my breasts as thats all he was staring at as he spoke to me) if you want to lift your eyes up and speak to me, I might respond. At which time he became very flustered and whisked me out of his office, with a strong hint not to come back. As if I would have. The man was a pervert.
