And re audible: you pay a subscription that grants you 1 book a month, so its slightly different than your understanding. You get to keep the books regardless of if you continue your subscription.

Mck1’s idea is cool, but I would actually try audible fo a couple of months for this reason: they always have some signup special running where you get a couple books for free. They also have some silly retention processes in place. The first time you quit, they will drop your subscription price to half for 3 months. The second time they do something else equally silly. If you play your cards right you can get like 8 books out of them over the course of 4 months for about $30.

Audible is great - I recommend it. I pay $20 a month, but can download 2 books a month. Often those books cost >$20 each, making the subscription cost worthwhile.

Another one is Libravox. It's free audio books for books past their copyright period, like the John Carter series.

Have you ever been misdiagnosed by your doctor? I went to my primary doctor for pelvic pain and inflammation after sex. She swore I had an STI after a pelvic exam and she did a cervical swab to test. She treated me the same appointment before the test results came back. I got a shot 500 mg of ceftriaxone. And also some type of antibiotic pills. The tests came back negative. I never had an STI. I had a yeast infection :/ I was treated for the wrong thing
