bleeeeeeeeeeeccccccchhhhh.........

That is the update. Since yesterday afternoon, my antibiotics have "ripped me a new one." Seriously not happy side effects. The best parallel I can draw is if you have ever had serious food poisoning, that is the closest state to what I have.



So I went to the doctor this morning to get my antibiotics changed. And the nurse practicioner had to have "a little talk" to me about not walking in. That I must always call ahead. I told her that I walked in, with the understanding that I could wait all day...that I only did it because I have been so sick and that it is the day before a long holiday weekend. So anyway, I am really upset right now. I always try to do the right thing, and other doctors have never been so ridiculous to me in the past. So I am auditioning for yet another new doctor (the last two closed their practices). If anyone has a recommendation out there for doctors who actually have good bedside manners and want to SEE patients, let me know. Please. Because I guess I should have been warned when this doctor's office hours are only 9-4, and they are closed 10-2 for lunch. And if their voicemail system was good enough like other doctors, I could leave messages with an understanding that it would be addressed. (But I have had such a hard time even finding any doctor, I was desperate.) And also my medication said to see my doctor if I had stomach pain (which I did). At the receptionists desk, they even laughed at me that my medication said such a thing, as if the print out that you get with them NEVER SAY THAT (in my experience they do). I guess I can't win. People today have such a 'tood.



Maybe this is what I should expect from the Greenville Hospital system.



Anyway, I am glad to say I took a dose of the new antibiotic an hour ago. And I feel better already. Maybe I will be able to eat. Well, there goes the only benefit of nausea inducing meds; the weight loss plan. :)



And all of your posts were sweet yesterday. Thank you so much for your kind thoughts.

You poor thing! I'm sorry you had to go through all that. I'm glad you got your medication switched. Have a nice long weekend and feel better soon!

Geeze that would just tick me off!! I'm glad you're feeling a bit better before the long weekend, that's a bonus. I have no luck finding doctors either. I somehow want one like Doc from The Little House TV shows when i was a kid LOL

Glad you're feeling better. It's a sign of the times. Good Docs are a dwindling commodity.

They LAUGHED at you? Sheesh, you need to leave, and fast! I have a wonderful internist, but she's affiliated with Mary Black in Spartanburg. It's a fair drive even for me, and I live in Lyman. Her name is Suzanne Kovacs at Piedmont Internal Medicine, if you want check them out.
