not in my 20s anymore (but worth it)
And so I ask.


Ugh. When I was a volunteer EMT, we once took in a woman who'd given birth a few days prior and was in so much pain that she'd soiled herself. She was in agony and could barely move. We just wrapped her in the soiled blanket and scooped her up since cleaning her would be painful.

We took her to the hospital where she'd given birth, and we had to speak to a security guard before we could get her into the ER. We even had to tell him what her problem was. He let us in (of course) but said something like, "she just gave birth, of course it's going to hurt." I have often thought about how that guy needs to go fuck himself.

I assumed the doctors would give her the treatment she needed, but now I'm not so sure.
