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.
