For the men... no gyno-related stuff in here, so feel free to read on. Every year we have to fill out a little questionnaire about our health habits and lifestyle. One of the questions is, "If you own a gun, is it secured away from young children?" Well, we don't have kids. I suppose the answer to this question depends on what you consider "secured" to be. I put a short explanatory note next to the question, and this is sort of how the conversation went. (She evidently forgot that I put the same thing on my questionnaire last year.) Gyno: So you guys own a gun? Me: We have five. Gyno: Really? Are they antiques? Me: Not really. My husband started collecting them when he had a roommate in the Army. I've only bought one of them myself. Gyno: Well, you know what's going to happen when you have kids? Me: I buy a bigger safe? Gyno: You'll find a way to get rid of them. Me: Gyno: You love your husband, but you love your kids more. Everything changes when you have kids. So don't tell me to change docs--she's already moving out of state and has referred me to another doc. But I thought this comment was really interesting. I didn't get into a debate with her or anything. But I wonder how many people have had this kind of conversation with their docs, or ANYONE, before. I'm sort of flummoxed. It's like her telling me I won't be using kitchen knives anymore.
