I went to the VA Hospital today for my podiatry appointment but I decided to stop by the Urgent Care Center at 8 AM when they opened to figure out what is going on with my system. Well, I found out today that I have a viral lung infection and they are not able to give me any medication because it is viral. I was told to take Tylenol for my headaches and fever and I told the nurse I cannot take Tylenol because of my kidneys so she told me to take Asprin or Motrin and I told her that I am allergic to both of those. She then asked me what I do when I have headaches and fever and I told her I tough them out. So the nurse told me to tough it out and push even more fluids down my throat because of that. She also told me NOT to go outside because the heat will make the infection even worse. And her last order to me was to do NOTHING!!! I am not to lift a finger to do anything in my home and I will see my PCP on the 5th of September.
With all of that being said, I am backing off and out of SP Land until all of this gets under control and completely GONE! I want my health back and I will do what I am able to do to get my health back. So ladies and gentlemen please excuse this young lady for a moment while I get well.
