So I’m getting older.
It’s a trip when you think about death. It’s going to happen to all of us. I sometimes wonder how many doctors are out there practicing for profit. People that end up with shit like cancer- do their doctors try to heal them or do they just do what is necessary to keep the patient alive and on medication.
This past June I dislocated my shoulder. It fucking hurt. Along with the dislocation I had a scrape with a deep-ass cut in the center of it on my knee. The doctor prescribed me an ointment that I was to apply twice a day. I did, but on the third day I was going to put more cream on the wound, I didn’t. The edges of the scrape were bright red, as if someone drew on me with a loud red marker. The cut in the the scrapes center was turning nasty, looked meaty and raw. I freaked out so I doused it with peroxide and with ten to twenty minutes it cleared. I informed the doctor. She tells me “don’t use the peroxide too much, it will kill healthy skin/tissue too, just use soap and water to clean it and keep it clean.” SOAP AND WATER!!! Why didn’t she tell me that in the first place?
Everyone have a great weekend!
