This last month hasn't been the greatest in my life. I'll recap.

1st. I was playing Assassins Creed one night and decided to go to the kitchen to get some grub. I got up from my bed and rushed for the door, while doing so I cracked my ankle bone on a piece of metal that sticks out from the frame about 5 inches. Of course that piece just happened to find the edge of my damn ankle. I broke off a little piece of the bone...I can still feel it around in there if I push on it. At least it doesn't look like I have a baseball underneath the skin anymore.

2nd. About 2 weeks I started getting a sore throat...the lymph node on the right side of my neck started swelling up. The only thing I could eat was yogurt and apple sauce. About 3 days after this I went to the emergency room at St. Rose hospital. The doctor did a throat culture. 2 hours later he says that it isn't tonsilitis or strep throat (WHEW!). It was a viral infection, viral pharyngitis was the exact term. Since this is a viral infection and not a bacterial one there are no antibiotics. I've just been waiting it out for the last 2 weeks. One of which I missed from work. A few days ago I had the first real food I could eat in a while.

Thats pretty much it.

They are, I will give them that. I just don't like doctors, always wanting their money. I got a bill from the EMERGENCY room for $367 bucks. A week later I got a bill from the DOCTOR for $200. WTF?!

I will admit that isn't that bad. A couple months ago my niece was in an accident. Her friend was driving too fast and didn't know how to handle the car. She lost control and went over what is basically a 30 ft cliff. She had to have, I think it was 2 or 3 surgeries. One was to patch up the intestine because the seatbelt caused some damage to it. Besides that, living in the desert after it happened my little niece walked over cactus to get back up to the freeway to get a cell phone signal.

Sounds like she was fucking lucky just to survive. Hospitals are expensive, but insurance should cover it (assuming you have insurance). If not, just be happy you're getting better.

Yea, I drive past there everyday going and coming from work so I know the area well. The girl that was driving was released from the hospital the same day. She didn't even go to see my niece after it happened. She also tried to pass it onto her, saying it was my nieces fault. She is fine now, almost like nothing happened. Except for the scar on her stomach.

Yeah man doctors don't care about their patients anymore. All they want is money.

I'm not saying all doctors suck. Just seems like most of them these days just care about money and not helping people. The doctor that helped me I tried several times to tell him that it could also be my saliva gland. Everytime he would tell me its just an infection...nothing to worry about.
