My night off

Here's what I discovered tonight:

You can go to the emergency room with chest pain, fill out the forms, get interviewed, get so sick of waiting for hours that you go home AND NO ONE WILL CALL YOU TO SEE IF YOU DROPPED DEAD ON THE WAY HOME.

Don't you think they should?

I don't think this issue is serious. I went to the doc in the box (again) and they did and EKG and it said I was ok. They just sent me to the ER as a precaution since my chest hurt. I will go to the doc tomorrow, promise.

I met some wonderful nice people and did my spiritual practice, which consisted of a mantra from A Course In Miracles, kind of zen-like:

Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
Therein lies the peace of god.

Of course this is denying the reality of the body, but that is ok with me. Why not? It isn't going to last anyway.

Yes they should have checked! Isn't our health care system wonderful?

Just in case you haven't considered this, severe heartburn can cause unbelievable chest pain. It hurts so badly that it's difficult to breath. I thought my pain was coming from acid reflux, but it turned out to be my gallbladder.

Anyway, I'm sorry to hear you're going through this. I hope your doc can help.

Leave your foil hat on and they'll find you...
They always find you.
