Today I had my last appointment with this guy, my eye doc, because he is embarking upon the slightly slower paced life known as retirement… and I cried!
Because… little known fact about me, but I dread most doc appointments. Suffering a sudden, profound hearing loss in my Tweens, I was poked, prodded, tested, examined, and hooked up to machines CONSTANTLY growing up. I know, it all served a VERY good purpose, but as a young kid, it can be exhausting and overwhelming, too.
And especially, having lost one major sense, I was always VERY hypersensitive to my eyes, but this guy ALWAYS put me at ease with his manner, always explained what he was doing so I could understand, and never made me feel like a baby – I always got some laughs at my appointments with him and I mean, have we met? LAUGHTER IS MY HAPPY PLACE! A doc’s office doesn’t usually bring about such a happy vibe! 😊
I know, it’s silly, but it is what it is… He always made me feel much more relaxed, and I think that’s really an extremely important trait in a medical professional!
Do you have a doctor your life that you just adore?
