    Although the diarist and I have had unfortunate disagreements (which I now have personally forgiven), I'm extremely grateful for this diary.

    Especially since I'm facing major surgery in the near future (it keeps getting pushed back since despite incredible efforts I'm not losing weight fast enough).

    Yesterday I had to go to urgent care at my health provider's facility an hour away from me, after a very high fever and a VERY bad sore throat.  Although I had an appointment, they kept me suffering in a cubicle for FOUR HOURS before a doctor arrived.  

    And while she was sweet and sincere and apologetic, and I don't blame the system for having to triage more and more emergencies ahead of me, I was disappointed to have her say that while I was obviously extremely sick, they have no clue what is the problem.
