I see the doctor at least twice a year and I usually talk on the phone the whole time, unless I'm too busy talking to someone else that's also waiting to see the doctor. I have to be talking to someone or I'll just fall asleep from being so bored. What do you guys do in the waiting room?

I usually bring a crochet project with me and work on that while waiting for appointments and such. It's a good conversation starter too, as people will always comment on what I'm working on. If I don't have a project small enough to cart around, I'll bring a book. I can't stand to just sit there and do nothing.

i tend to zone out. i am the one usually going with someone to the doctor so i have to wait even longer in the waiting room. but if i dont zone out i am pacing in and out of the doctors office or going outside for a smoke, i tend to smoke alot more when i am at the doctors waiting. i also text everyone i know to make some of the time go faster since i dont like being on the phone in public because i dont like when people try and listen into my conversations when they are bored.

I read the magazines provided or play games with my cellphone. The last time I went to see the doctor, I read the same magazines, there were no new ones around. Sometimes I go out and wander around for a few minutes then come back.

If there's a magazine lying around I read that. If not, I play games on my cellphone or I do text messaging. Most of the time my husband is with me so we usually just talk talk and talk. Some of my doctor's clinic also have Tv sets so that keeps me entertained too.
