so my toenail is ingrown. again. and getting infected. again.

so i'm going back to the podiatrist. again.

this time i'm insisting they do the proper guillotine that whole section off and kill the nailbed. i'm tired of dealing with this.

also pissed about a $55 copay, but i guess i can't complain too much since at least i have insurance

not trying to make fun of a painful medical condition, but i find myself intrigued with the notion of the "bionic toe".

@Nikolai_Kingsley ngl, last time this happened (back in april) and i was walking around on a raging infection for 2 weeks before going in to urgent care for abx and suggestions on a podiatrist, i contemplated removing the whole toe just to be done with it entirely

i don't imagine i need to warn you that people can easily die of infections, even today. your body is a city, and if the barbarians take over town hall, that's it.
