When I arrived at the Women's Center, a lovely woman named Penny checked me in. She was warm and inviting, much like the waiting room, and I was instantly at ease. I filled out some basic information about why I was having the exam and was soon called to the back room to change. Though I'd been instructed to shower and not lotion, I forgot not to use deodorant and needed to wash it off.
Why is this relevant? Because I did something in that bathroom I've always feared I'd do.
Not take a selfie, though I did do that.
No, in true Denise fashion, I inadvertently set off the wall-mounted "patient needs assistance" alarm.
