One Foot In The Shoe - Not The Other

The human body is an amazing self-repairing machine. It consumes resources around it like oxygen, water and nutrients (usually shoved into pie hole) and allows me to ride this meatsack like John Cusack on John Malkovich.

However, entropy has begun overtaking this unlikely biological Rube Goldberg device I wear. The years have started to reveal cracks in the system. For example, gout is pretty fricking painful. I have known from an academic standpoint that gout can be painful but to endure a whole night of one's toe being smashed in by a sledgehammer at least three times a second is something I never thought I would experience.

I don't belieeeve it.

It took a needle with gout meds to reduce the pain to manageable levels yesterday.

I am just glad to have medical coverage now and very grateful that I did not gravely and acutely require it when we were freefalling without any back in the city.
