This too shall pass

I came down with the flu a few days ago, and haven't felt like writing much.  Or reading.  Or breathing. 

Friday afternoon, I took a pass on my regular doctor, and went to CareNow - one of those Doc In A Box places. 

In and out with a steroid shot and a prescription for some antibiotics.  The visit goes against my deductible, plus a $15.00 copay on my pills.  Altogether, about $212.00 dollars. 

I have no point to make.  Just putting it down here for future reference. 

In the year of our Lord 2013, someone could see a doctor, get a shot, and get a round of antibiotics for $212.00. 

This too, shall pass.
