Urgent Care

After Chris came home from work yesterday I was pretty sure I was dying.  I had had a low grade fever for over 24 hours, my ears hurt, I couldn't breathe and it hurt to swallow.  So Chris took me to the Urgent Care.  And guess what?

I have . . .  a cold. 

Seriously. 

How embarrassing.  I went to Urgent Care for a COLD!!  Not strep, not pneumonia, not Swine Flu- not even a flu!  Just a cold. 

And I even can't leave this shrinking one bedroom apartment for another 24 hours (if my fever stays away). 

So yeah.  Sorry about the pathetic posts this week- I have a cold.

I was told that twice last winter only to go back a few days later, still sick, and was diagnosed with strep both times. Apparently, the swab test doesn't always pick it up. I hope yours is just a cold and it gets better soon. If not, go back!

I agree with Priscilla--I know two people that have tested positive for H1N1 after being told by their doctor NUMEROUS times that they just have a cold--so take care of yourself, and go back if you don't feel better!

Hey, I think that it is all about the way that it *feels* not what it is *called*. Colds can be pretty nasty, and from what I hear the swine flu can be pretty much nothing.

Feel better soon!

Welllll, I'm not sure I'd take their word for it. Don't you have a personal physician? You need one of those and you should be seeing that person, not Urgent Care.

Their job at Urgent Care is to get people in and out of there and make some money. Do you know how many people probably show up there during the week thinking they have the swine flu? It can make less-interested folks complacent.

If you're not better by Monday, you should see a real doctor. I mean it.

But I hope you feel great for the weekend! :)

I hope you feel better. And I agree with some other commenters .. if you don't feel better soon, go back.

Uh! I hate that!! I think I am super mom/doctor so everyone has to be pretty sick before I will take them to the doctor. And it still always turns out to be a cold. What a WASTE! Hope you feel better soon!
