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!
