I'll stay on the forums, it's the blogs that work like a red flag to a bull for me.
Cutie, am still standing strong!
Tho I have been reading some (kinda interesting) blogs and it took great strength NOT to reply to that horrible Katie, making fun of my difficult situation!
But I managed! I'll take her on in catfights!
Tx for the support! ;-)
My sincere best wishes and I hope nothing but IMPROVEMENT will await you tomorrow!
Sometimes, taking care of yourself is the hardest for people who are always taking care of others eh?
Let OTHERS take care of you now!
I hope you get well soon!
Okay I will come clean...this week has been havoc.
I knew I was unwell and was in excruciating pain yet ignored it because of my responsibilities to patients and more importantly did not want to scare my family.....By the 4th day 3 hours into providing treatment I had to abandon them (my patients)as I became scared and knew I could not pretend something was nothing anymore.
I left them and walked my silly arse to the E.R in my green scrubs with my stethoscope around my neck.....with some tears could not take my hand away from my RT chest....I knew it wasn't cardiac...or did I?....The pain was beyond belief with every inspiration/expiration...not able to laugh hiccup sneeze cough without feeling I WAS DIEING.
You must remember someone in the medical field can and most likely will ignore their own symptoms....Stupidity I know.
Today I am feeling better however I have to go back to E.R tomorrow and if there is no improvement I will be admitted and have a chest tube inserted...reason being they found a partial collapse of my right upper lobe due to a blunt trauma that happened July 30th my birthday.....What a way to bring my 37th year in...whimper
