There is no chance I will ever become a heroin addict. I hate needles. Even the THOUGHT of an IV makes me cringe. It was with this attitude and proclivity that I approached tattooing. You might say I was just 'slightly' squeamish.
At the risk of being challenged to a fight by Sylvester Stallone, who could beat me with one hand tied behind his back (though I might have a chance if he were blindfolded, too), I am going to call my ongoing kidney stone saga "Rocky."
Instead of creating laws that sound good but in reality cause more harm, we should encourage laws that provide incentives for people to do the right thing. Want drug users to clean up their used syringes? Protect them from charges if the syringes are stored in a safe container.
I have always loved my doctors, and I regard general anesthesia as a chance for the kind of deep sleep that I don't often get. At the time of my last surgery (nothing big), I thought of several tips that can help anyone who is admitted to the hospital for a medical procedure.
