Fuck Hospitals

So I’m checking into the University of New Mexico Hospital later today for two weeks. I received a call from my doctor earlier this week saying I’ve got some kind of weird CF superbug and, despite the fact that I feel better than I have in a year, they have to go nuclear on it because it could kill other CF folks if I walk near them. The bug in question, Burkholderia multivorans, is super rare, and many people who get it are perfectly fine — myself included, apparently — but as far as the doctors are concerned, I’ve got the bubonic plague. Fun times.

I’m actually gonna attempt to live tweet the stay — especially the shitty parts — because fuck hospitals. You can follow me at twitter.com/egumeny. Hopefully this time there won’t be mold and dried blood waiting to greet me.

If Twitter isn’t your thing, feel free to email me or call me or visit me or just start a game of Words With Friends with me because as much as I’d like to pretend I’m going to get some writing done I mostly just vacillate between depression and anger when I’m hospitalized and I’d like to not do that this time.

You can also donate to COTA to help pay for this bullshit.
