Fun with viruses

walk in clinic in Massapequa and Amityville

You know, if they really want poor people to use urgent care instead of ERs, they might want to make it illegal to demand a credit card up front for any costs not covered by insurance. Just sayin’!

Anyway, I went to the local center the other day because I started to have asthma attacks with my cough, and it was a little scary when I couldn’t breathe. Fortunately, I was the only one in the waiting room and got seen right away.

The doctor told me I didn’t have the flu; he said you have to have a high fever, which I didn’t. Whatever. He said I had your basic upper respiratory infection, and told me to stay in bed for three days because I was run down. (Uh huh.) “I can give you a note for work,” he said, but I explained I worked from home. He gave me an inhaler for the cough.

Well, I tried to sleep all day yesterday. The contractors working downstairs were apparently cutting hardwood flooring at one end, and banging on something else at the other. But I did get a couple of naps, I stayed off Twitter and I didn’t watch any news. Yay for me!

    As Alan Grayson once said, “They want the poor and sick to die slowly.”
