Sunday, September 06, 2009

ok so not gonna see my new primary care physicain until the 16th and was trying to hold off. I'm asthmatic and since tuesday i have been living off my inhalers and yesterday i broke down and begged the receptionist to get my a prescription for albuterol solution for my nebulizer. well since yesterday i have been taking a nebulizer treatment every 4 hours! YIKES! brokedown again today and called the on-call dr who convinced me to go to the hospital.........and i am down right upset! and i'll tell you why, whenever i've seen a dr and was given a nebulizer treatment, i was ALWAYS given a prescription for prednisone, and what do you think happened at the er? the doc listened to my lungs and gave me a prescription if prednisone. what the freak?! are you kidding me?! i could of just told the on call dr to give me a prescription and would of saved $100!!!!!! and i'm unemployed, its not like i can afford this either! GRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I understand your frustration! I have been there on many occassions. The good news is that it wasn't any more serious. When you speak to your regular doctor next time I would suggest you make him/her aware of what happened and your situation. Ask them what they would suggest if the situation should occur again. You can't change the past but maybe you can make the future better for yourself. Keep smiling Sunshine. emoticon You are in my prayers. emoticon
