Fun way to decide what Doctors mean
For those of us who are lucky to be healthy, but twidling our thumbs with boredom, I dug out the following piece sent me by a Yorkshire reader. It gives one a wry smile to counter the awful news today.
Very much tongue-in-cheek
According to my friend, Yorkshire folk have the lowest stress rate “because they do not understand the seriousness of most medical terminology”.
This, and definitions below, were sent by a fellow cancer patient, who also happens to be a proud Yorkshireman (with a lovely sense of humour!)
Looking at their scenery, it makes sense – gazing at countryside helps put things in perspective.
Humour is the best way to handle problems the NHS throws at us – so enjoy these light-hearted definitions of ‘Medical Terminology’ from ‘God’s own County’.
