Sometimes I think that medical school has made my husband a bit of a hypochondriac. Maybe not a hypochondriac but it does make him a little obsessive around certain subjects. For example, Adam is currently in the gastrointestinal portion of medical school. One of the diseases they have been studying is periodontal disease and acute necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis (yummy!) and the effects on your body. So, Adam has become the tartar police. He has been brushing his teeth religiously and thoroughly.
Many times a day.
I swear, his gums are going to recede into his toes from heavy brushing. And he's been showing me how to correctly use my sonicare toothbrush to correctly remove plaque by the gums and prevent infection. Also, he doesn't approve of my flossing techniques any longer. They are ineffective. and horrifying.
Ah, the adventures of being married to a medical student. Can you imagine the obsessiveness once we have a kid?
