Male patient: I've got fibromylabia, I think it's called. Coworker [deadpan]: Sure, sure. Do you know what stage that is? Patient: WHAT? Coworker: Has your primary physician staged that for you? Patient: He can do that? Coworker: Sure!
Somewhere there is a PCP who wants to kill my friend. How he kept a straight face, I will never know. I couldn't have done it.
But this is the stuff apocryphal ER stories are made of. Could that be any funnier?
And haters, save your hate mail. Don't get pissed at medical personnel who write you off for having fibromyalgia. Get pissed at the fakers who give it a bad rap.
