I was forced to make an appointment this morning. I had been putting off going until spring, but a cold is forcing me in. To make this nice for you, I'll spare exact details, but I'll say the cold drained hard into my ear. I called to make the appointment at 3 am. I have it at 10.
So I'm seeing a nurse practitioner so I can find out if there's any damage. I've never had an ear ache this bad ever. I'm also bringing my husband, I fear he may have bronchitis from his cold and he's calling into work today and I'm making sure he's going to get this over with. It's never fun hearing him lacking breath, I wonder if it's not asthma brought on by illness? That still hasn't been diagnosed, but having a son with cold-induced asthma, it sounds similar.
I haven't seen my regular doctor in over a year (but under 2). So I've lost a lot of weight since the last time I went in. It may not have been my highest when I went in last, but it will be significant. I'll be interested to see the look on anyone's face that reads that detail.
All I have to really say is I'm glad we have any kind of health insurance, even if this will cost me more than I can afford on any normal day with this many sick people. Fortunately I got my taxes back.
