Bladder infection story:
We were in N. Carolina visiting my very proper inlaws. I got a bladder infection. Went to the hospital. Did the pee test, though I knew what it was. . .I've had many. Anyway, the doc came into the room and said to me, "You must be either a hooker or a teacher." I agreed as to how I was, indeed, one of those things. He told me that those are the two professions with the highest incidence of UTI. When we got back to inlaws house, I laughed about it and told mother-in-law. She was HORRIFIED by the doc's comment. I thought it was pretty funny.
Another bladder infection story:
Husband and I were on a motorcycle trip. We had to stop about every 10 miles so hubby could find a bathroom. He came out after about the 5th stop and said, "I just don't understand. I keep having to pee, but when I try, nothing comes out." I told him that he probably had a bladder infection (I've had many. . .did I already say that??). Found the nearest hospital (in the middle of Wyoming, where there is nothing). The lady doc there, after determining what it was, asked my husband, while I was present, if he had had sex with multiple partners, since UTIs are quite uncommon in men. Husband was outraged that she asked while I was in the room.
Luckily, UTIs clear up very quickly once you're on meds. BUT. . .eat yogurt while on the antibiotics, otherwise you'll get a yeast infection. (That was for Dina).
