Search for: Long Bone Knee Immobilizer, nearing it's end. #medicalsupplies

I've been to three (3) big Mercury Drug Stores trying to find a second Long Bone Knee Immobilizer (M), but alas they had no idea where to get such a contraption. I have been strongly advised by my doctor to wear the immobilizer at all times to not aggravate my small fracture but my nose, and sense of hygiene forced me to have the help wash it the other day. Bad move. All the unintended bending even with a compression wrap. Gave way to a lot of pain.So I called the source, Cardinal Santos Medical Center (CSMC). I was promptly but politely forwarded to the ER, who then forwarded me to Central Supply where: Mr. Rolly Roleon (unsure of the spelling) assured me they had it and stock and were willing to sell it to outpatients. You may reach CSMC Central Supply at +63-2-727-0001 loc. 3808 FYI: Long Bone Knee Immobilizer (M) will set you back PhP 3,590.00See the full gallery on Posterous

Smoking... #selfaware

If smoking cured: pain, depression, loneliness, rage, guilt, & low
self esteem... I'd be in tip-top shape. Sometimes being self aware
isn't fun. But I'd rather recognize my issues and address them (if possible) than
be in denial.

Instructions for my ashtray (w/ EN translation). #analretentive

Translation for non-Filipino speaking folks who may come across this post:The brown (stuff) is dried coffee. Remove cigarette butts only not the dried coffee. Thank you. 

Jedi vs Sith

I wonder how it feels to not give a shit about anyone or anything, except yourself... And get away with it!

Must be fucking liberating. I wish I didn't care so much. I wish I didn't expect as much from people I admire, scratch that, used to admire. Having a tough time adhering to the Jedi code:There is no emotion, there is peace.There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.There is no passion, there is serenity.There is no death, there is the Force.
Seems I am more closer to the Sith code. I've turned to the dark side and haven't even noticed it.Peace is a lie, there is only passion.Through passion, I gain strength.Through strength, I gain power.Through power, I gain victory.Through victory, my chains are broken.The Force shall free me.
