“He’s Finished! Time To Get Rid Of This
Guy And Find Somebody Else!”
These were the exact words of my doctor as he stood in front of my girlfriend and I as he diagnosed me with Gout.
Even my own doctor couldn’t take my gout seriously.
It was as if I was the only one who knew just how painful this was.
He slipped me a prescription for some tylenol 3’s and some other drug I couldn’t pronounce and told me it would be best to avoid what he called “trigger” foods.
Fish, bacon, veal, asparagus, kidneys, lentils, haddock, scallops, crab, lobster, duck, oysters, and of course alcohol in any form!
Instead of “trigger” foods he could have just said “any food you actually enjoy eating” and that pretty much would have covered it.
I complained the entire way home.
About the pain…
About the foods I couldn’t eat...
And about how life would never be the same...
