Getting over on hospitals

Recommended Posts

So I've had some nerve pain the past couple years that has gotten progressively worse in the past couple months. Heart pains, dizziness, shortness of breath, Yada Yada. When I Goto free clinics I get an EKG, the runaround, and they kick me out and tell me I'm fine.

 

So yesterday I went to a nice hospital and signed in with a fake name and social security number. Got seen by a doctor who actually seemed to give a shit.

 

After getting x-rays, blood tests, EKG, a legit diagnosis and 2 different medications I feel 100 percent better. Not to mention a sedative they gave me that knocked me out for 5 hours while I waited for the test results.

 

Free health care on a dick move that would have cost me about 4,000 dollars out of pocket????? I think so.

 

Anyone ever done this? They didn't even care to ask for an address or my phone number. Nothing. Wow.

 

 

 

 

 

Oh and Hella Love it, I get it. You hope I die from this and blah blah.

I tried the fake name and social thing. While I was getting seen the receptionist (hulk smash) came in and said ''no such person exists, want to give it another try''.

 

Had to give my real name and get a real bill. Plus I still owe 20g from my last surgery. Fuckers.

I owe the hospital about 7 grand from previous visits by giving them a real name and such. This time I wasn't trying to add to the bill. I went to a much nicer place out of the city and had it all planned out.

 

The diag osis wasn't for any particular disease. I have been taking numerous forms of benzos since I was 16(24 now) and havent been able to get them for about two years because my parents cancelled my insurance. Long story short, been getting them off the street and through drug dealers but haven't been abusing them, just taking what I need to feel right. Little did I know that benzo withdrawals are deadlier than heroin and other such drugs. I stopped cold turkey 10 days ago and yesterday my heart hurt so bad I thought I was a goner. Doctor said the I have done significant nerve damage and it will take weeks or months to recover. The medicine he gave me makes me feel a lot better in the mean time.

 

To all frequent benzo users(clonopin, Xanax, valuum, ativan) I highly suggest getting off those drugs. Man up and quit being a little bitch. Anxiety is all in your head. The withdrawals aren't worth it and it damn near ruined my life.

 

As for the free hospital visit, it really saved me. It's always worth a try.

I had no idea Benzo withdrawals were that serious. That said, taking them for 8 years straight is a long time. Then quitting cold turkey? Not good. I took Benzos at one point, but this was only for about a week and that was it.

 

I'm surprised no doctor told you that benzos aren't meant as a long-term drug. It's more of an "emergency pill" when you're freaking out, panicking, etc. Doctors will usually prescribe you some kind of drug meant for long-term use.

Oh, and I can't be in bright light or watch tv(fuck that) or be on a computer(fuck that). Supposedly all these things stimulate your nervous system through the roof. Just sleep and darkness for at least two weeks. And a lot of exercise.

Well, when the doctor says take these twice daily you tend to not ask questions. But I am very pissed that I was kept on this shit for so god damn long without warning of suffering such horrific withdrawals.

If your "doctor" had you on Benzos for 8 years, he needs to have his licensed revoked. Every doctor should know that Benzos aren't meant for long-term use.

My doctor had me on them for 2 years actually, then I started moving around the country and getting them prescribed everywhere I went. It's really my fault I got this addicted to having them in my system. On some real ignorant type shit. That, I can admit.

man, really? you got to do research on what it is you're putting in your body on a daily basis, fuck taking the word of some doctor that more than likely doesnt know/care how bad benzos really are in the long term...

 

benzodiazepine withdrawal is the worst. :scrambled: :scrambled: :scrambled:

People look at doctors as gods because they went to school for several years and passed classes others thought were too hard.

Then they go to shitty hospitals and end up with doctors who were C students.

Then they wonder why their medical care is subpar.

 

That's like hiring a shitty lawyer for your murder beef.

"benzodiazepine withdrawal is the worst." shiiiiiit you ain't even lying though.

 

I'm willing to go out on a limb and call people that withdraw from heroin pussies. "Ohhhhh I'm going through hot cold sweats, I have a fever, I'm sweating and can't sleep."

 

Boo hoo you fucking pussies. It feels like someone is driving a blunt object through my heart and twisting and jerking it around. How's that for a withdrawal? I would give my left nut to be going through "cold sweats and fever" instead of this torture.

good luck with all that

i'm surprised it worked but if they consolidate your health history in the future you may have fucked yourself by leaving that out of your history.

 

for all of you that owe docs, good luck on that too, a good friend of mine got sued and got his wages garnished after putting off a hospital bill for years. around 20g.

 

funny to me, how everyone wanted to defend health insurance companies when the US tried to reform health care. they are like, the biggest criminals ever.
