Went to the Doc.
And anyone that knows me personally, will tell you, that ME going to the Doc, I’m HURTIN’!!!!
Not the eyeball. That was purt much back to normal this AM, a little foggy in sight, but I am so used to that from Flashburn and vaping, that I don’t really notice it anymore. Nope, this time it was the arm. I went to work, even put in several hours of good effort. Then ’round ’bout 1, that forearm was just laying down on me, rather like I laid down yesterday. I was using my grinder and just HOLDING IT was like driving a spike down the center axis of my arm. Trying to put it into use was excruciating. So, off to the DOC I goes.
X-rays, outside assessment, No breaks. even have two wonderful images on a disc of my arm and elbow. And while I am no technician or trained Medical Doctor, even I can see that there are solid bones in them. No little squiggly lines denoting a hairline fracture or anything. Talking to the DOC, and describing the pain, the best way I could explain it was “Really BAD Shin Splints”. and she nodded sagely when I said that and replied; Torn muscles. A steroid shot in my hindquarters and a scrip for stronger than OTC dose IBU, (that I likely won’t get filled) And she did say that if things don’t start improving, she would give me a REC for an MRI (and since I am out of pocket for literally everything, Un-uh, not gonna happen.) but to lay off the poor abused wing for a spell and see how it does.
guess what that means? Nothing at all. I will favor it, same as I have been, but for the most part, business as usual. Still good to know that I didn’t bust bones; just means that I have to slow down a little and flap a whole lot less for a bit.
And thats the good news of the day. I wanna post some of the other stuff in the world, but to be honest, I don’t feel like tracking down the links right now. I read that House of Saud is not taking Xi-dens calls but are partying with Xi-ping or whatever the CCP’s headtroll is called. THAT says tons about what is really going on in the world when the House of Saud is showing signs of cutting the umbilical to the US. And if they do,,, as the clockwork orange would say “get ready for a little ultra-violence’. Weimar Republic is going to look downright muy rico to what we will FEEL.
Anyhooos, its easy enough to plug those terms in a browser and find oodles of articles on it. If Xi-den Emperor poopy-pants the first wants to keep his stolen position and the country over which he supposedly reigns VIABLE, he needs to get off that Greendeal Hopium and crank up those pipelines and Drill baby Drill. ANd even then, I honestly feel that the tipping point has passed us by and we are not likely to be able to get back to that center, even if we managed to get oil below $20/brl. It would hurt Russia, Saud and every third world producer of energy but I don’t think it would be enough to save this country. (and of course, CONgress just passed their own pay raises, AGAIN. along with 1.5T of added new debt and supposedly new 2A infringements.)
Fuck’em. It’s not like they are real Americans anymore, Well, some, but not enough to make a difference.
(Note: my “DOC” is an APRN who runs her own quickcare clinic. Saves me mad cash and she is more attentive than any MD I have met local. The prior visit was to close up a blowed out finger that was trying to make like a horror movie. Her seamstress skills were impeccable and you have to seriously look to find the scar. $65 flat fee, both visits, vs the $1100 ER or $1400 ER visit for a antibiotic scrip,,,,)
