Wouldn't wish it on a dog

George Clooney was seriously injured making a movie:

His chair was kicked backwards and his head smashed on the ground, damaging his spine. The injuries left him in such intense pain that he entertained suicidal thoughts and continues to suffer short-term memory loss.

Close associates claim doctors dismissed Clooney’s complaints until spinal fluid started leaking from his nose. Since then he has had numerous operations on the dura mater membrane.

Ordinary folks may take a kind of perverse pleasure in the fact that even the very rich and celebrated can get dismissed and misdiagnosed by doctors. I guess its kind of nice to know that everyone can get mistreated by doctors.

He says he could recover fully by taking six months off work but that is not going to happen in the near future.

That's just foolish, though. Health is more important than anything else he might be doing at this point.
