Dr. Chang: Your arms are OK, your legs are very good. You are carrying too much weight in your belly and thighs. That's where the over weight is. Do something.

Me: So Dr. Chang I am getting divorced and I may have sex someday with someone else, what is new on the birth control front?

Dr. Chang: pregnancy will not be your problem, you are infertile. Even if you did beat the 2% chance you couldn't carry a fetus anyway. You need to be concerned about disease. CONDOMS and not those silly condoms for women. Why are you getting divorced...who wanted it?

Me: Dr.Chang, he left and he filed. I do not have any real explanation.

Dr. Chang: You are young and attractive, you will meet someone more suited to you. Do not lock yourself away. You are young. He is probably going through a mid-life crisis. He will never find anyone more interesting than you. You need to have a vaginal ultrasound. I want to make sure there are no tumors growing back. I told you that back in the Fall.

Me: Dr. Chang I was focused on other you know I had to retire to the country for 29 days. When do you think I will menopause?

Dr. Chang: laughing, oh that is cute. You should write a book. Your life is amazing. OK get dressed. See you soon and take care! And do think about losing some more weight. You have about 15-20 years before menopause starts...sorry. Let me know if your period starts spotting in between cycles. We will see what we need to do next. OK now.

Yep, I need Mary J Blige today! Work that.

Hey there!

"He'll never find anyone as interesting as you." I love that.

Not all men can handle 'interesting.' Because interesting means complex (which can be challenging), and also because interesting means other people will find you interesting too. Which makes insecure men uneasy... I don't know if that was the case with you, but it has been the case with me. Wasn't the whole problem, but was part of it.

Your doctor sounds pretty straight-up. Do what he says and get that ultrasound...

And wow, you have a long time before menopause.

Don't write that book, yet! There's gonna be more.

I am so bossy today! Sorry.

My ex got re-married (to the affair) last week. Two months after the divorce was final. To say I'm shocked would be an understatement. Just seems insane, especially since he can't be around me without getting emotional.

Sistah Babz - i need to come to C-Town to check out this honest & lovable Dr. ;-)

May-bee is SO on POINT:"Not all men can handle 'interesting.'" Sadly, our emotions/egos aren't always as detached as they need to be & our feelings get hurt by COMPLETE IDIOTS who didn't deserve a MILLISECOND of our TIME!

Girl - we gonna get some EXERCISE THIS WEEKEND!! Gonna Dance, Laugh & Walk off some of this stress & baggage! LOL!

Hey May-Bee,
You must have been feeling me..I was looking of ryou wondering where you were. HHMMM so he got married...SHIT! Well he is somebody else's dream. Good riddance. She is a fool to marry a man who lied and cheated on one woman he professed to love.

Dr. Chang is a trip...she is amazing. She is Chinese so she has a different sense of humor that can come across as harsh, but not to me. I love it.

OK now I am going to revise my wardrobe! I am so ready for a good time!

this is exactly what i needed to read before heading to the gym and daring to put on a bikini for the second time this season.

I'm down 13 pounds this year and girl lemme tell you it feels good and although it's taken a bit longer than I would have liked, i can blame that on french fries and margaritas!

Do your thing girl! I see a future so bright I'm putting on my sunglasses!

Lovebabz said...
