nah, let it all out.. doc needs to know everything..
i let my doc know everything. its so funny, we end up laughing for most of the visit cuz i tell him everything.
farts and all.
so go on... spill the beans!
ps---in australia, its a whole different experience than a doctors visit in the states. im from california and if i went to doctor, i waited in waiting room, went to another room, waited, saw a nurse, waited, then doctor came in and then left, waited, nurse came, waited, then given go ahead to leave.
in australia, you wait in waiting room, get called straight into the doctors office and there you chat or do whatever you do with a doctor then your done. so much more efficient and better and you have him to yourself for however long you need. doctor is not triple booked in multiple rooms with lots of waiting. so its more of one on one, you and doctor, interaction where they are devoted to you the whole time. i luv it!
where i was going with this, is why i said to "spill the beans" and say everything, is cuz over here you can cuz you have time, but i do understand what your saying about
taking too long with extra info that might not be necessary.
