We whine.

When you tell someone you’re sick.  Like “I think I have cancer.”  Their responses are “OH STOP.  You don’t have cancer.”  Some of those people are doctors.

After years of this, I finally park myself in the doctor’s office till she hears me through.  I can see her forehead tighten as I go through the list of symptoms in its entirety for the first time.  I was sent out with 8 lab requisitions, x-ray, ultrasound, and urine test just to start eliminating some possibilities.
This “Let’s cheer everyone up, regardless of everything else!!” thing in the Canadian culture could kill people.
