My Valentine's Day @ Urgent Care

I know I said I'd be back to blogging regularly in the new year, but I'm obviously a liar. I'll believe it when I see it too, so since I've clearly failed at that New Years resolution, I'll just resolve to not make any more promises. How about that?

My Valentine, Mr. Reesey!
I hope y'all had a good Valentine's Day. As if being single isn't annoying enough of Valentine's Day, I spent my Valentines Day morning at Urgent Care which was an experience in itself. Mumbling dude behind me in line hacking? Check. Old grandpa rolling in with pj pants and a robe? Check. 2 month old baby screaming his head off? Check. All you would expect in an urgent care waiting room on Valentine's Day and more.

After not waiting too long in the waiting room, I was relieved to be taken back to a room to wait on a doctor. But it wasn't a doctor who came in to see me, but a medical student. Seemed legit. Sike. Then after she examined me, the real doctor came in who had on a SARS mask, sounded sicker than me and told me, "not to worry because she wouldn't breathe on me." Um ok. What. the. fuzz? There are some professions you should know when to stay home if you are sick. A DOCTOR is one of them.

So that happened. Don't worry, I survived. I just had a virus which you basically can't do anything for except rest, drink lots of fluids and take codeine cough syrup to ease the pain. I already feel a lot better after 2 days glued to my bed and DVR. Happy Valentine's Day to me!

The whole point of this story is that since I've had some down time, I've been able to write some blog posts and scheduled them. YAY! Have a great week friends. I miss y'all.

Coffee, cats, candy, cards and ... body wash? Single girl probs.

  3. So happy to see you blogging again! You are missed! And I have never trusted doctors. Ha. They always tell me to take a few pills and come back if it doesn't work. Sneaky sneaky. I'm glad you are feeling better!

  4. So I am a nurse/SAHM and we weren't allowed at work if...you know,we sneezed two days ago, more or less. They were super strict about keeping germs away from patients sick with other illnesses. But...my husband is a Dr. And I have to say, it is freaking hard to replace a sick Dr. If my husband doesn't go in, there are potentially 50 patients who can't be seen. So, he takes lots of meds and wears a mask and keeps his distance as best he can. If his partner calls in sick, he also might have to see twice as many patients in a day:( If not, nobody gets to see their Dr. :( (Our healthcare system is so messed up. But don't get me started on that!) Fortunately, he is a man who almost never gets sick. P.S. cut those students a little slack:) Everyone has to start somewhere.

  6. Oh hey stranger. Welcome back! Urgent care and the ER are two places I like to avoid generally. Gross me out.

  7. I agree Valentine's Day for single ladies is just a waste of the day. I spent my day at the mall where I shopped gloriously for myself at MAC and Sephora! :) Sorry about your UC visit...I think the man in pjs and robe was my favorite part!

  9. UGHHHHH with the sickness. I mean seriously. Everyone I know has been sick at least once this godforsaken winter, and it doesn't seem to be getting any better. I got that shit AGAIN this weekend! Thankfully my stomach wasn't involved this time, but it still ain't pleasant. Our air needs cleansing, or something . . .

    Reese is a perfect Valentine. But we need to talk about good coffee.

  13. As if the possibility of being really sick isn't scary enough, being exposed to even more germs that could get you in worse condition makes a visit to the doctor's even scarier. But hey, at the very least, you found out that you didn't have anything serious going on and that you were out of there pretty quick. -Waylon @ US Healthworks
