I was at the doctor today, getting a couple of prescriptions renewed. The doctor's office apparently recently changed their office musac to some fairly Wagnerian classical music. Just before the doctor came in, the song changed to one with solemn organ music. When the doctor walked in, I asked him if there was something he needed to tell me. He didn't get it, even after I explained it.:supergrin: Perhaps I slice my humor too thin, but listening to organ dirges at the doctor's office is creepy. I kept expecting someone to start embalming me. Eric

One perception that help me to cope is the realization that I'm NOT going to pass until that (preordained) moment when my time here is through. Personally I find that thought very comforting. :)

I like the John Donne reference from his meditation that reminds us that the death of any of us diminishes the rest of us.

No Man Is An Island

No man is an island,
Entire of itself.
Each is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thine own
Or of thine friend's were.
Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.

John Donne

There are some people who should have upgraded to the model with the sense of humor. I'm lucky my doctor is someone you can joke with. A year ago he asked me, "So, how's the depression treating you." He about busted a gut when I told him with a completely deadpan delivery, "I have decided I'm not depressed. You and all the other people in the world are just in denial."

Reminds me of going to a dentist. While sitting in the waiting room I hear drilling and drilling and not some little drill but a big drill. I can feel the vibrations in the chair.


Turns out the doc was putting up shelves, but everyone in the waiting room was weirding out.

'88-'90 I was going off/on to a chiropractor whose offices were in an architecturally odd building. I customarily took the latest possible appt. when the staff was minimal... usually just me and my DC.

They would go off, leaving me in traction for a little while and things got really quiet. I could hear strange goings on down the hall, voices and footsteps, even faint music. One time I disconnected myself to go take a look; of course nobody was out there.

One night as I was leaving, the receptionist was still in the front office. While the lady was setting my next appointment, she and my wife (also a regular patient) were having a pleasant chat about the beautiful stained glass window set in the office's back wall. I mentioned the odd accoustics of the dome-topped building, the voices and noises I'd heard, organ playing etc.

She made cow eyes and said "You did know this used to be a mortuary, right?"

From that day forward my wife would not set foot in the place. Some other weird things happened with me and eventually I stopped going as well. :whistling:

I went to my Dr the other day because I had a large cyst in my nose and he broke out his camera and started taking pictures, said this was the worst he ever saw. So I calmly said, so what, I'm going to be your poster boy?
My Dr is nice, I'll bet I'm the only one who ever left his DR office will a handful of ammo.
He had the same type of gun I had just bought a SW 642 and wanted me to try some ammo he liked.

I used to joke about "my time" when getting ready to fly somewhere on business. I said "If my time comes while in the air, guess the plane will just have to crash."

Then someone asked "But suppose it the time for another passenger on your plane?" Oops!

"Guess Things Happen That Way" written by Jack Clement, big hit for Johnny Cash in 1958. I heard it the first time in 2006, performed by Jack Clement on Garrison Keller's "Live From the Ryman". This was a couple months after my wife died suddenly and unexpectedly, and the song hit hard.
