Well, I got sent home from work on Wednesday after my coworkers all agreed that I looked like “death.” Isn’t that a wonderful compliment! And I’d even gone to the effort to put on makeup and a bright shirt in order to look better than I felt. Apparently it didn’t work. So by 11 they decided I needed to go to the doctor and they told my supervisor so. He came in and told me to get out. So I went home, took a nap, and then headed to the University Hospital Urgent Care.
I was really nervous because the last time I was sick, I went to MediQuick, and just the office visit alone cost $100. I don’t have insurance, so something like that is a huge blow to my bank account. And I knew I was going to need medicine on top of it. And of course, I have rent to pay next Monday, dang it.
Well, the doctor determined that I do have the flu (duh) and also a sinus infection (also not surprising). He prescribed some antibiotics and told me to get a lot of rest. And here’s the best part… the office visit was just $54, and the meds only $20. So I won’t have to pay my rent late (thank God).
I’m still not feeling the best, but I can tell I’m getting better. Hopefully the antibiotics will kick it pretty quick, there’s a concert I desperately want to go to on Sunday. So be praying about that. And thanks to everyone who have been concerned, I really appreciate it.
