those with doctorates are fine, it’s doctors i hate

well the book i read about bein’ vegan SAID my stomach would hurt for like a month after i gave up everything-animal — i assumed it was related to some sort of cheese withdrawal — but it’s been like 2.5 months now, and my stomach still freaking hurts.

oh, and i’m STILL dizzy.

Now, a NORMAL person probably would go see a doctor if they were having stomach problems and getting dizzy.

but im a STUPID person, who likes to rationalize things away under the assumption that my health problems will fix themselves. (i do this with cars too). so in that spirit, here is a list of ten reasons why I really, really, really, don’t want to go see a doctor:

1. i freaking hate finding a doctor covered by my insurance.

2. oh ya, and actually, i just hate insurance companies. they’re so manipulative. they say things like ‘oh, you just have to pay $10 and we’ll cover the rest,’ but what they mean is ‘oh, we said TEN dollars? well, we’ll just bill you the other $3,500 for that test we don’t cover. no big deal right?’

3. i hate when doctors are judgemental. and this really makes me mad, because my junior high health teacher told me this wouldn’t be a problem. so not only do i feel judged, i feel lied to.

4. im worried the doctor will tell me i need to lose weight.

5. and then i will tell the doctor that i’m LOSING weight because im vegan.

6. and then the doctor will tell me that being a vegan is SUPER unhealthy. so I’ll feel guilty about my weight AND my diet. and I’ll go home and cry.

i don’t need real friends — i have grey’s anatomy

well, i was trying to be all cool and show my solidarity with the writers of hollywood by saying things like ‘dude, since the writers striked and the networks are tying to randomly bring back shows in the spring, im SO not going to watch them so i can show how important writers are’

and i was doing well.

i didn’t watch desperate housewives.

i didn’t watch boston legal.

i didn’t even watch american idol — because it sucks this year. to show that reality tv writers should be unionized.

but then.

ohhh snap. grey’s anatomy came back tonight.

i love that show. seriously.

i planned my whole stupid day around it. and i got home and made a vegan-organic-frozen dinner, and sat down on my couch and fell right back in love with patrick dempsey.

and im not even embarrased about. i don’t care that my favorite TV blogger doesn’t even acknowledge the show’s existence, because i know it’s out there and i L.O.V.E love it! 

i love the characters. and the writing. and the stories. and the one-liners. ( “We’re adults. When did that happen? And how do we make it stop?” ~ Meredith) and the way it all gets tied up with a writing bow at the end.

i just do.

and i really do hope they write enough new shows to fill every 8 p.m. to 9:05 p.m of every single Thursday this summer.
