About Me

I truly believe that we will all live in peace and brotherhood someday. And so that I don't lose my faith in humanity, I will live my life as if that day had already happened.

I love you all...



You're such good friends to me. Even in my darkest hours...

I'm drunk, but don't be embarrassed; pop in and say 'hi'.

I need it...

I wouldn't dream of suggesting a celebration. But does anyone want to hang out and just be happy?

I've already had a few shots. What are a few more?

Saturday, February 13th. The Weekend Edition of William Shakespeare's Thought For The Day:



Nothing in his life
Became him like the leaving of it."

Macbeth, Act I, Scene 4, Lines 7-8

Just got notice of patient #3 this week - end-stage liver disease. God have mercy...

I'm going to go climb something tall and jump off of it...

Drunk posting tonight. Okay, well...buzzed posting anyway. Where is everybody?

Out having a good time? I hope so. Enjoy! I love you!...

I'm flying high after a great day in clinic. Talk to me.

I love you all...

Will Shakespeare has returned from Stratford! He's treating me to dinner and drinks.

Ask us anything...

What is it that makes them "free"?

Huh?

These "freedom-loving Sovereign Citizens"?

Because they have a lot of guns?

Because most of them don't seem to have jobs?

Being dead-beat Daddys most of them?

How are they more free than those of us who work our jobs, support our families, pay our taxes, and come and go as we please?

You don't have to tell me that they're blockheaded losers. I know that already...

Dammit to HELL, this has been a rough week! Another one of my patients died yesterday.

He had a lot of chronic medical problems, but they were all exacerbated by one of the worst chronic problems of all, alcohol abuse. He was a pretty decent guy who really had little hope by the last time I visited with him of getting off the bottle and getting sober. I did what I could for him.

About my patient recently who died from emphysema, I was kicking myself, wondering if I hadn't done enough for her. I had referred her back to her pulmonologist a week or so before she died. My assistant talked on the phone with her husband, and he told her my patient had made an appointment for a consult, but then had cancelled it, and then died two days later. I don't know if by keeping her appointment death could have been staved off a little longer, but I guess we'll never know. The news took the stone off my heart just a little.
