So, anyone here every had a pelvic ultrasound? Then you will know that it's slightly sick and twisted.
You have to hold your bladder while it's near the breaking point while they push around on your jelly covered lower abdomen with a little device that looks like something out of 'Star Trek' right around where your bladder is. Or at least it feels like they push directly on it.
Then there's the wand. Oh yes, the magic wand of super sonic sound waves. What the ultrasound tech told me as she slid on the protective cover totally made up for me nearly peeing in my pants: "We always practice safe ultrasounds." The older woman said with a silly grin as she slid the suspiciously condom-like cover over the wand.
Totally made my day!
So I get to wait a few days for a call back from the actual Doctor to tell me if he finds anything. For now though I'm content that it's done.
Oh! And I'm getting better! Yay!
Recently I've been thinking about American culture (I'm still getting used to it, and yes there is a BIG difference between American Military Culture and just flat out American Culture. I'll have to tell you about it sometime.) and it occurred to me that it's the only individualist culture I can think of. Now it has me wondering if there are any other individualist cultures other than America. Does anyone know the answer to that?
