i just don’t get it
It’s time for bed, just watching the end of the TV show, “Ruby”, on the style channel and i find myself getting annoyed.
Here’s what I don’t get, have never gotten. This most recent episode I have tivo’d has to do in aprt with this woman going to the GYN. The “lady doctor”. The gynie. Whatever. And all the hesitancy and fear involved. And she is close to my age and hasn’t been for 10 years.
OK. This show in particular has to do with a morbidly obese woman and her struggles in the world and I totally get that my experiences are not hers and that being that overweight is fraught with negative medical establishment associations.
HOWEVER, many women express this same fear and concern and utter dread of the GYN office visit. I have never understood this. EVER. And I took MYSELF to Planned Parenthood at age **hhmmmmhhcfff** when I became sexually active and took care of myself. It’s part of being a woman. Duh. I mean, I can name few people who could say they ENJOY going to get an annual exam but c’mon!!!!!
I just cannot and can never understand how someone can be so freaked out by their own body that they wouldn’t go to get checked up. I mean, can you SEE your own cervix? Even with a mirror and months of dedicated bikram yoga practice, this is difficult. It’s a DOCTOR. It’s not some random person getting a cheap thrill looking up into your vagina. Unless their name is Gwen. But I digress.
