Baby, I'm a Wild One.

I visited my doctor's office this afternoon. I am on a new healthcare plan with work and Blue Cross/Blue Shield assigned me a Dr. Balwinder Somethingsomething as my new PCP. My new doctor is very kind and has a lovely accent but I'm not quite sure she knows what she's talking about. Our conversation this afternoon went something like this:

Doctor: "You have this diarrhea because....because you are dehydrated. Yes, dehydrated. You need to drink...fluids."

Me: Nodding head up and down while thinking "I'm no medical expert but isn't this normally the other way around...you get dehydrated because you have diarrhea?"

Doctor: "You have....a wild...bug. Yes, Wild Bug. It is in you and it is....trying to get...out. I will give you sample to take."

(hands me an over-the-counter allergy medication)

Me:
Walking silently out of the office with my sample of Allegra and my diagnosis of Wild Bug and thinking that I am so happy I have a blog so I can go home and write about this.
