I think all ASKickers struggle with their doctor appointments. I thought this one would resonate:

I went to the doctor for my yearly physical.

The nurse starts with the basics.

"How much do you weigh?" she asks.
"135," I said.

The nurse puts me on the scale.
Turns out I'm 168.

The nurse asks, "What's your height?" "5 foot 8," I said.
The nurse checks and sees that I'm 5' 5".

She sits me down on the exam table and takes my blood pressure and tells me it's very high.
"Of course it's high !" I screamed. "When I came in here I was tall and thin, now I'm short and fat !"
