I don’t watch the news. I don’t care to know what his happening in the world or my very own country. I am perfectly fine just looking out my door and seeing sun or rain and knowing- its sunny or it’s rainy. I don’t want to know about shootings, fires, plagues, law, presidents, the end of the world- nada. I just want to live in my little bubble and be.
My mother always says, “you need to know what is happening in the world because…” to which I turn a deaf ear and say, “no I don’t.” Simply put, if I were to hear, “steer clear of spinach for awhile,” I would have no further questions and that would be that.
So imagine my dilemma of every possible medical professional trying to give me the 411 on my current “road bump.”
The only way to best explain it would be like this:
Old: You need a bandaid for your boo boo baby
New: You may be allergic to the Latex and you want to change the bandaid 3 times a day because you need to look for discoloration, puss and discharge. Should you see that and it be green, you may have a fever and if that happens, you will need to contact us right away because you’re fucking dying.
