homeless day 13
so, friday night i wind up in the ER. my arm half cast half ace bandage is killling me because the cast part is digging right into my funny bone nerve 24/7 and it became totally intolerable. the ER happened to be quite busy that night, so i laid down on the bed and got 3 hrs sleep before the doc could see me. in fact he said a couple of times he saw i was sleeping so hard, he let me sleep and moved on to the next patient. well he took off my other cast and put a new one on and ace bandaged it. while off i got to see where the k-wires went in, and he told me that at some point the wires have to come out, and he described how they do it. he said they numb up your arm, do a small slit in the arm, enough to grab the k-wire with needle nose pliers and pull it out. then they might throw in one stitch. yay me.....not. so what else could i possible have to look forward to?
i'm trying to remain as upbeat as i can, but it's rough when you're sleep deprived due to a broken arm.
weekends are the worst for being cooped up in the car. nothing is open to go job hunting, no access to internet. routines are something you have to develope to stay out of trouble while living in the car. where to park legally, from what time to what time. then your next stop etc.
the heat is not your friend when you're living in the car. unless you park in perpetual shade, the roof heats up, heats your bedding, and makes laying down difficult. so when not online, i park in the shade at the city park.
i have contacted every church in town, no one has any funds. not even the mormans. and i'm still listed as one of their own.
i never knew there was so much drug dealing going on in this town. i know there is nothing to do here but drink beer, get high and beat or knock up your wife or girlfriend, but i didn't know just to what extent it goes on here.
something is wrong. i can't stay awake during the day. i can't sleep well at night either, but during the day, i nod off. i'll have to mention it to my doc on wednesday. i'm also not eating right, and i think it's effecting me.
maybe i'll feel better after my shower today.
