"Hi doctor, my ankle hurts."
"What happened, did you roll it?"
"Nope, I don't think so. I don't remember rolling it. It might be overused or something, because of Jazz....ahem, I mean, aerobics."
(Doctor LOOKS at my foot, but doesn't touch it)
"When did this happen?"
"About a month ago, but the last two weeks, it's been getting worse. So, I've kept it elevated and iced. As much as I can, I've been laying off of it and using lots of motrin."
"Great. That's what I would have told you to do."
(the Doctor has STILL not touched my foot)
"So, keep doing that for the next few weeks and if it gets worse, call me."
"Um....I'm sorry. But, Doctor....can you tell me why it hurts when I touch my foot right here?"
(he touches my foot, but barely)
"Oh, that could be a stress fracture."
"Really? Wow. That sucks."
"Yeah, call me if it doesn't get better in a few weeks. Bye."
