I went to Shaw before the SO, on the rare times my parents took us to any doctor. In the SO I went several times, after being so ill I was in Iso for weeks on end. But they never actually did anything or made anything better. Except for one time - this wonderful woman was working there, as a resident or something not yet a full doctor. She was so nice. She didn't make me feel like sh*t for being sick or anything. She even told me we would figure out why I was sick and not to worry. I wish I remember her name. She was tall and had long, dark, curly hair. She gave me a chest xray and there was a spot on it. She said I needed to go to the hospital and get a CAT scan to make sure I was ok. Then she went into the hallway and I overheard her arguing with another staff member of Shaw. The other woman said I couldn't get a CAT scan, because I was in the SO, and they would never pay for it. The doctor YELLED at her that it didn't matter, I was sick and needed it. I was so shocked I didn't know what to think or say. I didn't even thank her. I couldn't believe that anyone would say such a thing or stand up for me for anything. She was firm and nice and I should have thanked her profusely but I was also afraid she would be mad because I heard.
After that I went to the crap hospital for poor people, a few hours away by bus. They didn't help me unfortunately, gave me the run around and didn't know what to do with me (I was a minor without parents). But I never forgot that wonderful woman. She ended up leaving Shaw, which just proves to me that she was not a heartless jerk like everyone else there.
Somebody has to speak for these people.... no more running. I aim to misbehave.... If you can't do something smart, do something right. (Serenity)
