FML - The follow-up

Today, I used my phone to take pictures of my hemorrhoids to show my doctor, forgetting I'd set my phone to upload all photos to a shared Dropbox account. My mother-in-law called. FML

OP here - wow, it's weird and awesome this made it on the site! Here is some follow-up info: my doctor suggested I take the pics to see if the hemorrhoids were getting worse. I'm a new mom, so I guess sleep deprivation explains why I forgot about the Dropbox account. :)

Don't answer the phone, throw it in a river. Sell all your assets and move to a small hut without power in the alps. That should keep you off the grid and make it rather hard for her to ask you why there are photos of your haemorrhoids on her freakin phone.

30 - because it is the first post, so it looks like 1 is trolling. They got their answer, though - Original Poster. Maybe there should be a FAQ for those new to FML lol. They could make it a funny blog like they did to explain the badges.

Some doctors allow you to send pictures of certain, easily diagnosed and treated conditions, like hemorrhoids or poison ivy, to a work related email so that you can avoid a doctor's appointment. They diagnose and prescribe the treatment right over the phone. It's really handy for some and saves resources. Some insurance companies have a dedicated team and that's all they do.

I take pictures of my dog's injuries to show my vet, because my dog is vet-aggressive and won't let them near her. Perhaps OP is doctor-aggressive and the pictures are a necessary work-around. OP: *standing across the room* All right, doc. Let me throw you my phone. Doctor: *approaching* Can't I just - OP: RAHRAHRAHRAHRAH!
