But some I do remember. Yes, a doctor who was encouraging a third visit to the ER to the tune of a $150 co-pay per visit did say to me, Oh, you're not unemployed; you're underemployed, forcing me to display the kind of restraint I'm not used to doing. (Saying I'm underemployed is like saying Congress is a little out of whack.) I ended up not going and self-medicating that night, which is what most people do nowadays. Gone, gone, gone are the days of really competent, affordable health-care.
Or me wanting to say to a doctor, No, I don't believe having kidney stones is necessary for you to treat them, I just think it would wipe that smirk off your face. Doctor as businessman is an interesting theme for a play.
Politics, the economy, love, friendship, family all merge when you get sick, and the more I look around, the more I want to read Chekhov.
