Problem is I have no insurance – I haven’t had any since I walked from my job in the Conspiracy almost 2 years ago. And at this rate I won’t have any for a long, long time to come. So what does that mean? I get to sit here and wait till the script runs out, then go back to the ER in more pain? Or if it is something along the lines of a kidney stone – what then? Don’t know and at the moment, don’t care. I’m enjoying the buzz and the lack of pain while it lasts.
Swimming in a sea of opiates
So I get woke up this morning by a pain I’ve never experienced before – my whole right side felt as if it were on fire. For an hour and a half I writhed around on the floor hoping the pain would subside. I finally ended up in the emergency room getting pumped full of morphine. They thought it might have been a gall bladder attack of some kind, but my ultra sound came back fine. So I get a script for lortab and am sent on my merry with instructions to see my family doctor.
