I’m fighting another bout of being ill — this time it’s an intermittent fever for the past three days that’s quite annoying and tiring.

It hasn’t gone much over 101 degrees F, so I don’t think it’s serious, but if it continues much longer, I feel that I probably should see someone — I’m just not sure who.

Should I go to local law enforcement for medical advice? Or the state troopers? Maybe I should check myself in at the regional DEA office? Does anyone know what their clinic hours are and whether you need an appointment?

I mean, sure, I have health insurance and belong to an HMO, but I’m not sure if I should go there since it appears that a doctor’s opinion on medical issues is less valuable than that of law enforcement.

    Pete – if you were to go to one of those locations for health care, that would be newsworthy and elucidating for the plebeians. Hope you feel better soon.

    Sorry for your discomfort, Pete. However, you DID give me a good laugh for the morning. Between “fever & cold,” I can’t remember which one you starve or feed. Where’s grandma when you need her?

    Hope you recover soon, Pete.

    While you are laying on the couch,with your favorite blond/bong,or both,watch Run Ricky Run on espn tonite at 7pm cdt. It is a 30/30 news show about a professional athlete and prohibitions treatment of him.

    Talk to Calvina Faye. With all the medical claims she makes, must be a doctor, right…..;)
