The Bike Path: On a warm and sunny August Sunday, I was rollerblading with my kids on the Shining Sea Bikeway. On mile nine on the trip, I hit a tree root, went flying, and landed on my shoulder.
Here is a smapling of questions the Dr. had after his ER visit: "Why couldn’t the registration person wait for the minute details? Why did all those people look away when they heard me groan"?
He goes on to say "I can’t imagine walking by somebody groaning in pain and ignoring them. Except I probably have. In the hospital. And why do we do that? Why do we leave our humanity at the door when we arrive to work? I assume we just get desensitized to suffering".
