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 Wine-Buzz. Ask me anything...

I love you all...

You know those powerless creeps who go through their lives constantly threatening to sue everyone?

Snivelling losers whose lack of accomplishment is due in equal parts to bad decision-making and a sense of entitlement?

That's Trump, but with (someone else's) money...

Friday Night Moscow Mule Buzz. Oh, God! What a week! Hold me!

One of the roughest weeks in clinic for a while. I had to give it my all; and, as is often the case, I find myself wondering if my all is enough. On the plus side, I felt like I practiced good medicine even during the roughest patches.

I'm fighting anti-vaxxers in GD, tooth and nail.

I'm seeing our nation sink further and further into squalor and criminal behavior as a new normal.

And in the midst of it all, I play the 'Jupiter' section of Gustav Holst's "The Planets", and cry tears of joy at the 'I Vow To Thee' middle section of the piece, which is beautiful, awe-inspiring, uplifting, hopeful, triumphant, and life-affirming. Sometime life truly is good.

I'm drunk. Be patient with me...

I love you all...

Whew! It's been months since someone tried to shake me down for opioids or benzos.

Today, I got four already.

And the day's only half over.

The weekend can't come fast enough...

Please...... *sob* ......think of the tanks......


Wish me luck. I'm trying to keep a patient of mine from being deported.

I have visited with this patient for six years now. He's in his late sixties. He ran track and field for his country in the 1976 Olympics ( I won't say which country; a trip to the almanac could reveal his name.) and he's been homeless for about the last ten years. He's not a US citizen, and now the Trump government wants to deport him.

I wrote a letter just now disapproving him for overseas travel based on his medical condition. I'm hoping they will delay or cancel his deportation as a result. Be thinking good thoughts for my patient.
