Back for More Trouble

To make matters worse, I've been sick for the week on my "vacation".  It's been more than several days I have been doing nothing at all.  Once again, I've hit rock bottom and feel like a bum.  It is as though there's not much I can do differently to make my life any better than it already is without the aid of a financial miracle.  The good news is that I decided to get off my ass and change my primary care provided on my community plan healthcare care card (Medicaid).  It took about an hour to find a real doctor that actually works with the program.  It was well worth it.  You won't find mainstream, American doctors that people want all the time.  Instead, you may find the doctors that come from foreign countries with accents.  There's nothing worth with that.  It's just that the doctors born and educated here in America probably want a lot of money for their time and services, especially since medical school prices have sky rocketed through the roof in the past couple of years.

During the time I felt I was getting sick, I was taking my daily nutrients and supplements.  I guess it's one of those things that unpreventable.  The weather drops down a few degrees when September approaches.  I usually get sick around this time, but this year it happened a bit earlier.  After I get sick around this time, I go to the doctors for antibiotics and that usually does the trick.  I may get sick up to three times a year depending on my luck.  I know if I'm sick right away, because my throat starts to get sore and start to cough. It's a God awful experience and that is why I make sure to take my daily vitamins everyday.  Sometimes I go throughout the months without ever getting sick.  I still workout, take nutrients, and eat right; but sometimes I just get sick for no reason.  I try home remedies before going to a real doctor, but there's so much one can do.  Natural, home remedies only work up to a certain point; but then you need something a lot stronger.  I can't tell if there are much side effects using antibiotics, but it's been doing well for me once I fall ill.  It usually takes a week or two to recover.

In any event, there have been minimal amount of new and exciting projects going around here.  I may have worked out one or two deals, but nothing spectacular worth mentioning.  I have received some rebates in the mail that usually take up to three months to arrive.  Yes, rebates take a very long time to arrive; but eventually they get to your home when you least expect it.  It's not a bad system if you're patient.  It does get annoying, but it's better than nothing.  Well, I hope to get some more reading and studying done for my radiology classes starting in September.  I only have this week left until school starts up.  I just need to survive this last, remaining year; and I'll be home free!  Seriously, everyday I have to work hard and remain persistent or else suffer the consequences of being a fat, lazy American.
