Bill would make the same complaint as always. He would tell them his head was throbbing, a recurring problem he had learned to live with, but right now, it was just intolerable. He would explain it, probably to a nurse, and let her know he was aware there were pills he knew would take care of the problem and work quickly. He could have gone to the hospital emergency room, but the cost was too high for a young man without insurance. Besides, he knew the staff at the hospital was becoming suspicious of his frequent visits complaining of the vague pains that couldn't be substantiated; yet by law, they had to treat him and the only treatment was the medication he seemed to be taking more and more often. It was late when he arrived at the clinic. The duty nurse stood behind the front desk and took his name telling him to have a seat.
