Carolyn Engel sat in the outer office of Dr.
Matthews office paging through the latest weekly news magazine without really
paying much attention to it, as her mind was on much more important things.
Lifting her head out of the magazine, she glanced around the waiting room,
trying to imagine what each of the people sitting there were seeing the doctor
about. She made a quick observation that none of the other women in the room had
her particular problem!!! There was one woman who had a nose that looked like a
ski slope, while another looked like she had three chins instead of the usual
one!!! No, she was the only one who was a candidate for breast reduction
surgery!!! While most of the female population would probably not choose to have
breasts the size of hers, most of them would never even think of going through
what she was contemplating!!! Her thoughts were interrupted by the receptionist
who announced, "Dr. Mathews will see you now, Miss Engel!"
Taking a seat in an empty examining room, she passed the time waiting for the
doctor by counting the tiles on the wall! "Get a grip," she admonished herself,
"this is just a consultation, nothing's going to happen today," but then she
went back to counting the tiles!!! A few minutes passed before Dr. Matthews
arrived, but when he did finally come in, he immediately made her feel
comfortable with his easy manner and casual conversation. "Well, Carolyn," he
began, "I see from your chart that you're thinking about having breast reduction
surgery, not a common request I must admit, we usually have patients who want to
go the other way!!!" Carolyn nodded and then poured out her heart, "Doctor, I
know it sounds crazy, but I almost feel like freak, the women smirk at me, and
the men, well you know what they think, that all I am is a pair of big boobs
with not a brain in my head!!!" The doctor listened for the next ten minutes as
Carolyn described her life as the owner of a pair of 38F breasts on a one
hundred twenty five pound body before asking softly, "What does your boyfriend
think about all this?" After a moments hesitation she replied slowly, "I-I don't
have a boyfriend, I'm too ashamed to even think about letting a man see or touch
me when I know he doesn't care about me a whit, and besides, I think they're so
unattractive no man would want me anyway!!!
