Self Diagnosis

by Jonathan Hill
Originally published by on 28/03/2014

“I need to speak to the pharmacist.'

“That’s me.'

“Good, I think I might be pregnant.'

“Riiiiight, and why do you think that?'

“Well, I’ve not had a period.'

“Okaaaay, any other reason you think you might be with child?'

“I feel sick every morning.'

“Right, that could be because…'

“I have cravings. The last three nights I’ve eaten the fieriest of curries.'

“That might explain the nausea the following morning.'

“No, I’m definitely pregnant. I think I need to see a doctor. You pharmacists don’t know much, do you?'

“May I ask how old you are?'

“Eighty-seven next month.'
