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.

Friday Night Vodka-Buzz. Ask me anything.

Boy howdy! After the week we've had, I need a little altered mental status...

I hate TV shows with the premise: "The Conspiracy Runs Deeper Than You Know!..."

But it looks like this is happening in real life.

Anthony Kennedy and his son; Putin, Don Jr. Ivanka, the whole stinking mess of hot garbage...

Finally, something to feel good about.

I just did my first joint injection since graduating from PA School nine years ago.

It was a fairly routine shoulder joint injection. But routine isn't so routine when it's been so long.

The patient was very pleased, and said it was better and less painful than the two previous ones he had received from his orthopedist.

It's a very gratifying boost to my clinical confidence, and means one less thing I'll have to refer out for.

Nervously awaiting the Reichstag Fire...

Tell me something encouraging. I'm looking for a bridge to jump off of.

Not really, and I'm not making light of people who have these genuine thoughts on a regular basis.

Just some good old Lounge encouragement would be nice...

What are we really losing? Kennedy was the most unreliable 'swing vote' in SCOTUS history.

Good riddance.

The number-crunchers in admin want to move us to a clinic that has gotten NO foot traffic.

Seriously, they want to move our homeless clinic from a location six blocks from the homeless shelter, to a location that is far removed from the centers of the homeless population.

I'm going to have a little chat with the admin stooge whose idea this is, and give him a piece of my mind. The sheer nerve; If he wants to crunch some numbers, how about the number of patient we saw on a daily basis when we were cooling our heels at that location a year ago? We would see two to three patients a day, because none of our homeless patients could make the drive, take a bus, or freaking walk the distance to get there!

Change for change's sake. What a crock. If this shit keeps up, I'm resigning.

If ever there was a time for the return of Bob Boudelang, this is it.

The video of that demented Trumpanzee crying her eyes out over the unfairness of it all : "They're bein' so MEAN ta hee-im! He's tryin' so HARD!" This is the perfect 'stop saying that!' environment for Boudelang's particular brand of Presidential delusion.

And at least we could get some laughs out of it.

Friday Night Wine-Buzz. Ask me anything.

I love you all...

I just had to face down an enraged patient in the waiting room of the clinic.

I'm shaking.


This never gets easier.

The manager asked me if she wants me to call the cops. I told her let our mental health guy have a crack at him first. We got him calmed down, but if he blows up again, it's Tacoma PD for him...
