I needed to get some of my memorable visits to Dr.’s along the way into my blog. I have seen so many and such a variety of health practitioners! But these three visits still stand out in my mind. There are still more, but for sheer (sometimes surreal) comic moments, these three stand alone. The “alternative chiropractor” (the one using magnets and applied kinesiology) was actually recommended to me by an otherwise intelligent friend of mine. Desperate times sometimes cause desperate actions. I am far too pragmatic a person to take the leap of faith necessary to believe in these “out-there” therapies. But, hey, I was willing to give it a try. He was another one who was totally convinced of his way of doing things. He also insisted on a stool sample sent to a rather exotic lab that tested for all kinds of things. One of the things he came back with after that was I possibly “chewed too fast”. As shown in the cartoon, he did not like my “attitude”. I wasn’t too crazy about his, either.
