Keeping it Real

A patient today came in for his annual physical.  We chatted and at some point he said, “You are a good doctor.”  I asked, what makes me a good doctor?  He said:  The last time I was here, you asked me how I had been and I said great.  I asked you how you had been and you said;  “Well, I’ve been better, I cleaned up puke all weekend, got 6 hours of sleep, and if I have one more bad hair day, I’m going to shoot myself.”  After that, I relaxed and was able to tell you why I really wasn’t taking care of myself and my diabetes.  My wife was having an affair with my best friend.

I like that guy!

Just keeping  it real baby!
