Elin here,
Just to quickly answer Chemda's question about how blatant the facebook flirting was: basically one of his exes commented "Do you remember how you bit my tigh on the bus back from our first date lol". He was like, no, i don't remember and something about prefering to bite butts and back and forth with lols and winkfaces. Ending with "the rest we can't post here". Didn't really get jealous. Just got mad about the stupidity and double standard. Good riddance.

Do better people - yup, talking to myself too

For a guy whose brand is laid back, McConaughy usually comes across to me these days as trying too hard, so instead of just watching a character doing their thing it always feels like I'm watching Mathew McConaughy DOING ACTING.

Still dug him in True Detective when I finally watched it a couple of months ago though to be fair. (Because I am always fair.)

I was in the hospital for over a week following an invasive hip surgery called periacetabular osteotomy wherein they cut my pelvis into 3 pieces and rotated my hip socket and then put it together with long ass screws. I am lucky to say I had good experiences both with the nurses and physicians. My surgeon even came in on Easter Sunday late night to check on me 4 days post op even though he had traveled out of state that day to see his family - even though his physician assistant had already seen me. He really cared about me and my outcome.

Years later I got a boob job and my surgeon for that was awesome too. He gave me his personal cell phone number so I could text him with any questions or worries as I recovered and he even gave me free laser scar lightening treatments. He was so kind to me.

I’m a nurse practitioner and I’ve seen the good the bad and the ugly but I’m so fortunate my own hospitalizations have gone well so far.

Chemda,
What you experienced at the hospital is absolute BS! Hospital management at this location has failed you, however, I think they tagged you as drug seeking. Seems steps of care align with drug seeking intervention rather than properly treating and the jumping to morphine to "shut you up" and give you no info also smacks of drug seeking in your file to just give you what you need to get you "well". This is on Hospital Management Policies also.

Just so you know what the standard of care for triage of muscle spasm is oral muscle relaxer with a "wait and see" time to see if that works. If symptoms continue an intramuscular muscle relaxer is the next step (this WILL work). Pain management is a secondary decision and this sounds to me as malpractice to treat with pain management only. Morphine is counter-indicated for what was described in this episode. If this was given after an NSAID and an Opiod (wasn't said exactly but sounded like it) they absolutely could have killed Xerxes, this is WAY worse than anything else described about this horrible experience and you have grounds for legal action if this is true.


To actually address the issue and not just play pain management game (incorrectly) I highly recommend Xerxes get imaging of his cervical spine ASAP. Strength loss? Numbness? The recurrence sounds more like spinal than anything like an electrolyte issue or anything.

FYI- the annoying verbal name and DOB on every interaction is required now in NY.

Emergency! CALL 7-1-1!

711 seems similar to 911 so maybe it's worth a try.
