I pay $80 a month for family coverage for basic medical. Covers 100% of basic doctor stuff, but doesn't cover x-rays, anesthetics, medication, crap like that. Getting an operation can still cost a couple thou depending on what you need, but nothing like bankrupting-level costs.

You're right. We should get back to what a wuss this dude's kid is for needing stitches. I I'd have taped that shit up and kept riding. And I'm a frickin' chick.



damn kids these days. Git off mah lawn!



I ran my finger thru an immersion blender (google it) After almost passing out from blood loss I taped it up and went about my day. Two days later my co workers demanded I go to the urgent care. I was grossing them out with the wound. Urgent Care told me I did a good job with my bandage and I no longer needed stitches but they would have sewn me up had I gone in right away. Yes, I have really good insurance too. I just fucking hate doctors.

See. That is why we have high medical costs....people are pussies! You probably don't need half the care you're using.

Im kidding of course. Im crazy but I don't expect everyone else to be.

You're a chick. You should know how to use kitchen appliance...

Since those cares are FREE, might as well get them

Lol sounds like a good deal to me but I really did know you guys had to pay every month.

+ 1 on superglue.

Once I cut deep across the outside length of my pinkie (booting up w/ split skis in each hand, no gloves, my hand slipped), the next day a fellow at work commented that it looked like superglued, to which I replied "Yes, because it is." - he didn't believe at first... But it works great.

I agree somewhat. I've had a few ER visits. Twice for a broken hand... 4th & 5th metacarpal the first time and then the 5th metacarpal again in the same spot the second time. The first time I also had some of the wrist "stones" dislocated. After the adrenaline wore off, this shit was super painful.

So where do I disagree with you on this? Painkillers. There is nothing better than a shot of Dilaudid at the doc's for this type of pain. I've also had to go to the ER for Pleurisy (Google it). I'll just say, I'll take the broken hand pain over Pleurisy any day of the week. Pleurisy was no joke. I've never cried from pain, but that one did it.

By the way, when you have something like a broken bone and it's not a clean break, it's not a good idea to delay a doc visit.

Side story about broken hand incidents: Both times, the bones were bent upwards in my hand. Both times, I pushed them back into place while I still had the adrenaline. Nurses cringed when I told them that lol

Tore my ucl ligament(thumb) and put a hole in my tendon Snow Boarding. Taped it up and worked two weeks before I went to the doc. I hate docs but I hate paying $100 even more.
