Romantic heart disease and muriatic acid

At the ER

YOU MEET all kinds of people at the E.R.

While doing the routine monitoring at 3 am, I asked the half-naked, 20-something patient lying on the stretcher, "Ano'ng nangyari sa 'yo?"

"Nabunggo po ang motor na sinakyan ko, Dok," he said.

"At ikaw?" I asked the teenage girl who was eavesdropping on our conversation.

"Nag-suicide ako kanina," she answered as a matter-of-factly. "Uminom ako ng muriatic. Ang sakit nga ng lalamunan ko ngayon, eh."

"Bakit mo naman ginawa 'yun?"

"'Yung suicide?"

"Oo."

"I feel alone, eh."

Romantic heart disease and hydrochloric acid just don't go well together.

    2. As most of us are probably aware, heart disease is no small problem nowadays. Here in the United States alone the facts regarding this condition are rather eye-opening.Carlmont PharmacyAccording to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) heart disease is the leading cause of death for both American men and women.
