Heal the wounds!

Mar 11th 2013 new
You can accept or reject the way you are treated by other people, but until you heal the wounds of your past, you will continue to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarettes, with sex, but eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, stick your hands inside, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in your past, the memories, and make peace with them.

I had an insect bite once that became massively infected. After a week of ineffective antibotics, excessive pus oozing everywhere and questionably high dose rates of coedine, I got sick of it. I rammed a pair of scissors into the boil, dug in deep until I was behind the head, and flicked the mongrel out. It was the size of a golf ball, the opening was the size of my little finger.

And yes, it did hurt. A lot.

It was also the most awesome thing I have ever done/seen.

[I did practice good infection control though].

My doctor was quite ineffective, hence me taking matters into my own hands. And it healed very quickly, and the pain was like a mild bruise once I had the head of it out.

So yeah, kinda like those emotion things. Dig in hard, fast, make sure the scissors are clean, and be prepared to hurt a lot. But its a lot of pain quickly dealt with, or weeks of pain and discomfort.

It really was awesome. And then a bunch of ants ate the pus off the hanky I'd used to mop up. Is that TMI? Heheh.

Women get the free maternity care of their choice, GP, midwife or even a OB/GYN.

Of course, women get free abortions and two rounds of IVF out of the tax payers' purse.-_-'

But our GPs cost through the roof, you have to get hit by a bus to really enjoy our socialised medical system.

Since we don't have much public transportation, either, that won't be a problem. ;)
