Dawg Hair, SASS #29557 Posted March 14 Share Posted March 14 Well Rats! I've got COPD and several other unpronounceable things and after a scheduled appointment with my pulmologist last friday, I went hom and slowly started getting hit by a steam roller. I knew it wan't COVID but with my present condition I'm scared of just a minor cold. Well, I decided to brave it and started self medicating. WRONG!! Yesterday I went to the walk-in clinic and two hours later I walked out with a bunch of meds, a nebulizer and PNEUMONIA! I was given a ton of instructions and I need to go back today and then in two weeks for another chest X-Ray. Also was advised that if I got worse I should not wait but go to the ER. But last night I was able to sleep for the first time in four days. Sorry for the rant but I just feel like such an idiot. The main medical difference between men and women is a woman stubs her toe and goes to the ER screaming about a fracture, we men have to be at deaths doorstep before we take an aspirin! SHEESH! 1 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
