Walk and talk

Up till the age 23, the sickest I'd been was a cold. I was pretty sick last year though, I put off going to the doctor for a long time because I had no insurance. I was worried about the cost.

I went after one particularly heinous night when I was hallucinating from a temperature, and the doctor gave me a choice of going to hospital in an ambulance or in a taxi.

I took the taxi, it was less embarassing than getting into an ambulance down the street from my apartment. Although, at that point, embarassment was a little past me.

Anyway, upshot is, I was treated like an idiot by most of the doctors that crossed my path (not without reason), but I got better.

What's a near death experience without a moment of clarity though? And mine came with a realization that I've let a lot of important people slip out of my life. So I've spent the last month making contact with people I've been close to, and it's been great.
