I was filling in a form for a medical procedure I need to have (even me, Queen of Over Sharing, won’t give you TMI on this one #piles) and a couple of the questions confused / amused me.
There was a section about have you ever had or are you being treated for:
Angina or chest pain
High blood pressure
etc etc etc
Swollen Ankles or Heart Failure
Now I might not have any medical training – but to me those things are pretty different? Swollen ankles when pregnant / on a flight / if you’re born with any Homer genes and afflicted with cankles, seem fairly minor, and not in the same magnitude as heart failure?!?
There was also a section asking do you require assistance for:
I managed no for the first ones – but ummed and ahhed over the final one, but concluded they didn’t mean ‘do you have your own Mrs Patmore?’ so I plumped for no!!
