I have a chest infection.
I went to the doctor today as I have been coughing more and more since Saturday. He listened to my chest, and said I was rattling. Ugh. I have a week's worth of antibiotics and some really horrible cough medicine.
One amusing thing. It wasn;t my usual doctor, and as he looked at my records on the computer, he seemed puzzled.
Doctor: Have you ever been much (pause) heavier than you are now?
Me: Um, no, I think this is about as fat as I've ever been*. Why do you ask?
Doctor: Well, according to your records, you weigh 245 Kg. How tall are you?
Me: Five foot ten.
Doctor: That gives you a body mass index of about 75. (Looks at me again) Hmm, that can't be right.
He then insisted on weighing me, just to make sure I didn't in fact weigh as much as a small bus.
So. Even a trained medical professional had to check that I am not quite so huge that walls would need to be demolished to get me out of his office. Gah.
*Thanks for asking you git
