An unfortunate situation occurred to a friend of mine and as a result, her less than 2 month old baby boy is in the hospital with serious injuries. The mother did not describe what exactly happened, so for her privacy, I will not mention it. As we all know, hospital bills stack up and the amount owed can be incredibly pricey. Because of the injuries, this tiny baby will most likely need lots of care for his future when he is released from the hospital.
The family as well as friends…Continue

Recently, I finally surrendered to pains which have been nagging me for way to long. Much like the plumber with the leaky faucet, we, Doc families seem to be walking case studies of a plethora of ailments, aches, and pains - especially the adults. If something's hurting, I just wait until Doc H comes home, mention it in passing and wait for a response. Usually, I get no response other than a nod (translation: I have no idea. You’ll probably feel better in a day…Continue

So we just finalized out Bankruptcy. It many ways it is a closing of a very hard chapter for Ian and I. I don’t imagine so many couples would be trilled for their bankruptcy, as much as we are. We had about 200k, all of which was medical debt.
Over the past 10 years, we have spent 7 of them without insurance. In those 10 years we have survive 3 layoffs, two evictions, and we moved about 6 times in 5 years. And that is only the been the financial set backs.

While writing "All Alone" earlier this week, my fingers actually kept tap-tap-tapping away. And I looked up, and the sun had not only set, it was pitch dark outside. And a whole story had poured out. The post was so long I had to chop it in half, wrap up my thoughts and finish it in this post.
These past few months I've been thinking a lot about what "loneliness" and "being alone" are. 'Tis typical for me every…

I do my own research and I think it's high time that doctors get used to us doing this.
Doctors need to adjust to a reality that patients are actively engaging in their own care and should be treated as partners in their care. This means that at times the doctor may disagree with a patient's diagnoses and prognosis. Well as partners do, then the…Continue

I have been suffering with pain in my joints (on my right foot, ankle and fingers) for ten days now. I went to the doctor (after much research) and thought, for sure, I'd get some help for Gout. To my surprise, the doctor caughed it up to a "stress fracture". He pulled, pushed and stretched my foot till there was nothing left. He gave me a shot of pain reliever and anti-inflammitory (sorry- so dizzy and frustrated, if I sound confusing- bare with me please).
I just don't know…Continue
