IN the first place, there’s no doctor (in my clinic) available in Peace Health medical clinics, at any time for at least a month here. That’s why my friend Caroline TRIES TO GO TO SALEM, TO GET THE REAL GOOD MEDICAL CORPORATION. (SHE TRIES.) i, being a regular senior on medicare and social security, am stuck in the Valley Willamette, of the LA traffic, freeways, and SMOG . (So much for the pretty pictures painted by “Oregon” and “Eugene” magazines, which I won’t go into. )
Years ago, I’d have been going to UCMED CENTER ON PARNASSUS AVE, in San Francisco,and I would have gotten rid of the constant yellow drip of the goo in my left eye’s corner. It’s been going on for over a MONTH, and they still can’t get rid of it.It came with a sinus infection,(which is gone, courtesy of “Eugene Urgent Care, 1800 Coburg rd. Eugene, OR”, and that’s probably where I am headed again.
The Medical Peace Health eye-doctor not only can’t get rid of it, he doesn’t have time to see me; hah hah (and i don’t wanta see him at least not in my left eye, joke) but my regular medical doc refuses to see me cause this eye doctor started the care.–
and doctors stick together here; if one screws you up, the others also won’t help you.
TRUE. Eugene Urgent Care started it, and obviously, after Peace Health eye-doctors can’t get rid of it, and now REFUSE to see me, who am I left with?
That’s, right, a hike off to good old Eugene Urgent Care, cause they at least WILL SEE ME, (unlike my medical Dr, or even his cohort Doc, at good old Peace Health medical clinic —,and then you don’t have to wonder WHY I get asthma, bronchitus, and sinus infections with infected eyes.
Eugene has SMOG. VERY SERIOUS-L.A.-SMOG.
(Officially, I don’t have the CHRONIC asthma, and bronchitus yet, the TRAFFIC pollution hasn’t killed me that excessively yet. but it’s been predicted.)
THE FUN OF LOOKING FORWARD TO THE FUTURE!!DYING AND BEING OLD IN PAIN, MAKES DEATH LOOK GOOD.
(with at least the right eye.)
“Why is it taking you so long to blog?” asks Caroline,looking over my shoulder.”There’s a couple reasons for that,”I replied, hen-pecking=away.”I no longer have any dictation-program, they all crashed out.I have to type, and i’m in CONSTANT PAIN.–i GAVE UP ON DUMB, LOCAL COMPUTER HELP; AND–Dr. SAYS,”leave me alone, go take what you already got,for pain.”His whole clinic said that.
“GO AWAY!!! OBAMACARE SWAMPED US, there’s no doctors in the USA any more unless yer rich!!and medicare is GONE!! UNFUNDED!!” Obviously, i’m nor rich. rich people don’t blog about THESE PROBLEMS. The Met Costume Institute Gala Annual, that’s their blog!!
“So you’re really going back to Urgent Care on Coburg>” said Caroline, reading my future. “Yes,”i reply,”I am now one of the great unwashed ill masses, who have govt. insurance, and ain’t rich!!And I missed marrying into the Bush-Oil family!” (any old rich codgers out there? I still like men, somewhat–especially rich ones.)
“Well, my hard-working contractor hubby dumped me,”sighed Caroline.”Welcome to the other great poverty bunch; women alone with kids.” (Double-groan) In Oregon, its double-diget,or triple-numbers cause Oregon women HAVE TO HAVE KIDS!!! it is required!! even while single!! (??) Don’t ask me why, ask them.
As I make ready for my very important trip(s) to Eugene Urgent Care, I remember what Canada and Britain said to America, and our uninsured people; “You need to get socialist-govt. medical insurance, like us!!You capitalist idiots!!”
And they are correct; now our fed. govt. and insurance companies are fat and happy, and we’re entrenched in the dirty,filthy ERs of London, waiting for 8 hrs. with a broken hand, which gets tied together finally with a popsicle stick.(No doctors avail. in London.)–or, we WILL BE.
And, like Canadians, we have to go over the borders, to other countries next door, to get medical care, with money—OH, YES, THAT’S STILL our fabulous future!!
“What are you going to do, if they can’t fix it?” says Caroline, while I queue up to wait, at the drop-in.”I(f they can’t fix it, I eventually do this”, I reply, yellow goo min my left corner of eye again, ouch. “OK, the only people getting real medical care will be the rich, right?” “Yeah, so what?”
“So I get a gun,or two, partners, and we set out to kidnap and hold hostage for a billion, very rich KIDS of wealthy people!!” Caroline looks dismayed. “And we either get all the money, retire to a healthy part of South America, and pay MONEY TO DOCTORS, which is what they really WANT AND DEMAND!!–NOT this worthless govt. shit!!–either way, I either get my left eye well, or—I get probably all of me dead!!” which is a fair trade off.
I either get my left eye well, or I have a terrific gun-battle with police, & FBI, and finally get out of pain and infection!!–and I get outta this grim, horrible life!!!(No way I am going to fucking prison, kiddos, unless it’s got full medical care!!!)
Does it? Who cares? Not me. (an you imagine, me getting CANCER? FORGEDDABOUTIT.)
We seniors spent our whole lives, paying huge soc.sec. taxes and income taxes to the fed, govt. and now, they tell us”Forget it, Obumacare (!!!) comes first!! And govt. employees, and political representatives, and the RICH get medical treatment!! You dumb taxpayers can go SHIT IN A FILTHY CLOSET TO GET A DOCTOR!!!—OR GO KIDNAP THE KID OF A RICH BUSH!!” (Eventually, some day, very likely.)
“And WHAT CAN YOU DO, TO FORCE US TO GIVE BACK THE TAXES? HAH HAH YOU DUMB TAX-PAYERS!!!”
And another reason why, I just paid another donation to the NRA, National Rifle Assoc., and it was worth every penny.
WHY THE HELL didn’t I pay all those taxes to THEM INSTEAD?
Something for you young tax-payers to think about, in Eugene, OR. OUCH, my eye really hurts!!! fuck!!
