Well. I'm off to the walk-in clinic. Don't know what they are going to charge me to be seen, since you fill out a form & it's based on your income. I make a definite $600 a month, with some extra/stand-in work days here & there. I think I should qualify to be seen pretty cheaply. I hope so. I have like $10 to my name.
But I spoke to the nurse on call last night, & gave her all my symptoms, & she was like, "Ummmmm....you need to get to a doctor, TOMORROW!" Whatever.
I just got back from my pointless doctor visit.
Tried to go to the county clinic. Got there, parked far away (parking was full), no one would help me, no forms, etc. It was a nightmare. So I left. I called my regular doctor, hoping they wouldn't turn me away simply because I owe them money. I got an appointment right away, so literally drove from the clinic to my doctor's.
Showed him the pics of my hives, since I didn't have any at the moment.
The verdict? I have a virus...and yeah, that is one of those things that anitbiotics don't help. There is nothing I can take for my illness. And he thinks the hives are an allergic reaction to whatever the virus is. It could take 2 weeks for everything to work it's way out of my system, but there's nothing I can take. He gave me Allegra to take for 2 weeks, to try to prevent the hives.
Great....so I have been getting WORSE instead of better, but I just have to let this play out? What WAS the point of that doctor's visit that I didn't have money for? Sheesh.
I heard on the news how they are having to save surfers from this storm.
Ummmm...I understand the quest for big waves, but...but....but....are you people IDIOTS? Do you have a death wish? You don't surf during a STORM! If ya do, you deserve to die, a sacrifice to Aqua (god of water in the show "Once on This Island"). They are recommending only "EXPERTS" go in the water....I say if you have a brain, you stay out all together.
Have the sense to come out of the rain....or have the years of pot smoking diminished your brain cells (yeah, yeah, I know it's a stereotype that all surfers smoke weed....whatever)?
