I am 36 this year and unemployed. I do freelance jobs but not making much money. My father is a property agent and mother is housewife. Its been 4 weeks my wrist's bone is broken and it not yet heal. First, I had seen a doctor. Second I have gone to acupunture. Third I had gone to see a temple to prescribe medicine. Fourth I had gone to see a chinese practitioner. Fifth I have gone to see doctor again. My hand makes crack sound when I wake up from sleep anytime. I feel sorry because spend money on this. But everytime my father ask how about my hand, I say the truth I never fall and play with my hand. But he insist saying is nothing to worry about, he is afraid to take me to xray. I need to see doctor so much at a government hospital. It only cost me USD10. Right now he is angry and scold me everyday. How to persuade my father he don't trust my hand wrist's bone has broken.

You're 36 years old. You don't need your father's permission to go to the hospital. It only costs USD $10.00? So why not go! Do you have a friend or family member that can go with you or take you. Maybe take a bus if you cannot drive? That's horrible for your father to be angry with you when your wrist is not feeling right or broken. It has been 4+ weeks and that's a long time.

I'm sorry to hear that. But you're father might only think of the expenses. It is important for you to have an X-Ray to make sure that all is fine inside. We can't tell what is going on inside. It's better to be safe than be sorry at the end. I don't think xray is very expensive. Thanks god coz we have our medical card here covered by our employee that we can use anytine for hospitalization and medical care.

Yes he said before the expenses, and I am very dissappointed. He did not care for me much. All the treatments I get is also I paid it myself with my savings.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation but I hope you find a solution to that. I cannot say much about your father or judge him from your own discussion. I'm sure there's more to the story than just that. Take care of you and hope you get the proper treatment.
