Horrible Day...

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

well... the day started off crappy, because I had to call off work YET AGAIN. I have had a fever the past 2 days now. not to mention that I woke up with excrutiating back pain. So, because of the back pain (mind you, we have been waking up with back pain for EVER now) I decided to go to go to walmart and get a mattress topper. it feels incredible. it made my back feel great when I laid on it. wellllll thennnnn this is when the day really turns to crap, my boss calls saying I need a doctors note to return to work and I still can't come to work tomorrow because I have to be fever free for up to 24 hours, and that if I don't go to the doctor, I will lose my job. I CANT AFFORD TO GO TO THE DOCTOR! No medical insurance. Sooo i've been balling my eyes out for a while now. emoticon

    What a bummer! Is there a free clinic in your area or a community health center? Maybe even Planned Parenthood would have a doctor that could write a note [you might have to get some birth control, too]. Hope things get better.

    We are looking into it. luckily my in-laws are willing to help a little bit. we are going to have to go to a walk-in clinic.

    thank you! I hope I feel better soon too!

    So sorry you're sick! My company used to require a dr's note on the 3rd day too... do you have a clinic near you that spins down cost based on income, or one that offers a payment plan?

    I hope you feel better soon!
