THE PATIENT

Dana fidgeted nervously on the couch while Dr. Wallace studied the patient history form that she had filled out an hour earlier! "I see that you've been married for about three years now, is that right," the doctor asked casually?!? "Uh, yes," she replied, "it was three years last month! And everything was pretty much all right between you and you husband until you had the baby!?!" "Yes, we had a wonderful marriage," she answered softly, "but now............." "What do you think went wrong," the doctor asked, "is anything specific or just a general malaise in you relationship!?!" "I-I'm not sure," Dana replied slowly, "it's hard to put your finger on any one thing!!!" "Well that's why you're here," Dr. Wallace replied gently, "to try and find out exactly what's bothering you, so let's get started!!!"

"So how long has it been since little Jessica was born," the doctor asked!?! "Almost four months, in fact it will be four months tomorrow!!!" "Before you became pregnant, did you and Jim have a fulfilling love life together," he questioned?!? "Mmmmmm, yes," she said with a sigh, "it was wonderful, Jim was very attentive to my needs, and I believe I was to his!!!" "And this included all the normal sexual activity," the doctor asked, "such intercourse, oral sex, and masturbation?!?" Dana face flashed with red, embarrassed at such an intimate question, but she gamely replied, "Uh, yes, all three!!!" "So tell me in your own words what is bothering you, Dana," he asked gently?!? "He just doesn't want me anymore, and I really can't blame him, I look like such a cow," she said sadly, "my breasts are the size of beach balls, my belly isn't flat anymore, and my ass, it's almost the size of a small third world country!!!" Dr. Wallace chuckled under his breath at her little hyperbole, but knowing how sensitive she was, he quickly asked, "Has he said that he though you have become undesirable, because just looking at you from a strictly male perspective, you are far from unattractive, in fact I would say that you were just the opposite!!!" "She gave her shoulders a little shrug and offered, "You get paid to say things like that, doctor, I know you mean well, but really, I know what I look like now and how I looked before, and believe me, there is no comparison!!!"
