17 months ago I was hit by a car while riding a bicycle.
Josh, be strong, be well! Thank you for you]'re invaluable writings. A brilliant mind and a humane soul.
So glad you have healed well. There still are a few good guys around. Not too many anymore. Very sad. The bottom line takes precedence over patient care.
I graduated from nursing school in 1962. Those days are basically gone. Late 80s, the insurance companies discarded physician expertise and imposed length of stay in hospitals according to actuarial tables. Doctors had hell to pay if the patient needed more. Not sure which came first after that, when FDA and the other District of Corruption alphabet soups had people like Robert Taylor. The swinging door from Monsanto to the FDA and back. Then Hamburg, a former executive of Schein, the makers of amalgam. Other countries don't use it.. Add in the infamous big pharma. Now we have bill gates of hell running the show, and if allowed (sounds like it will be) WHO with 1 dictator for the world's population. Glad I'm old.
Glad to be a witness to your amazing process. Well written. Agree about consent and a health advocate. Good point. And wasn't it a truck? You are an inspiration.
You were lucky to be alive!!!
Make the rest of your life worth living.
Your girlfriend is a very nice person.
Take good care of your girlfriend, with your man's pride even if your legs are bad .
I believe guardian angels we're there for you.
