HYSTERIA

Laura Edgar sat in Dr. Hughes' waiting room with six other women who were either reading magazines, or dozing off. It was hot outside, about 95 degrees, and Dr. Hughes didn't have one of those new fangled air cooling systems yet, just a big slow turning ceiling fan that seemed to only move around the already hot air. Miss Perkins, the receptionist, stood guard over the door leading to the doctor's examining rooms, and from time to time she took phone calls making appointments with the doctor. Laura looked at the large clock on the waiting room wall and thought to herself, "Ten thirty, and I was supposed to be in by ten, why on earth do they always over book, they must think that we patients have nothing better to do than sit in waiting rooms!!!" Laura's thoughts were abruptly interrupted when she heard Miss Perkins calling her name, "Laura, you can go in now, room number three on your left, take a seat and the doctor will be with you shortly." Laura plopped down on the hard back chair in the corner and waited for Dr. Hughes to appear.

Laura was tapping her shoe on the floor and staring at the ceiling when Dr. Hughes swept into the room. The mid fifties physician picked up Laura's chart and said in a soft voice, "Well, Laura, are we still having our usual problem?" Laura shifted in her chair and with her head hung down and her eyes on the floor replied, "I'm ashamed to admit it, but it's actually gotten worse, and believe me I've tried not to think about it!!!" Dr. Hughes reached out and patted her on the shoulder and offered soothingly, "Dear it's the 1920's, and we have ways of treating your problem, there's nothing to be ashamed of, a lot of women are in the same boat as you are!!!" Laura felt a little better after hearing Dr. Hughes placating remarks, and she dried her eyes and waited for further instructions, while the doctor went to the door and called his nurse in for assistance. Helen Ames, RN, entered the examining room and set up the necessary equipment for Laura's treatment while Dr. Hughes motioned to Laura to go behind the screen and remove her skirt, stockings, and panties. When she was naked from the waist down, Laura hopped up on the examining table and laid down with her legs slightly spread, and the doctor turned on and over head light and adjusted it so that it was pointing directly at Laura's vagina. Dr. Hughes leaned over and gave her crotch a cursory optical exam, and then with his fingers he began probing the young woman's opening, feeling up and down the length of her crack, taking extra time to check out her clitoris!!!
