I love being so sick that if I don't get rest I will be admitted into the hospital. So guess what! Its almost four in the morning and I've had two hours of sleep! Hello hospital! If I don't end up in the hospital I will be surprised. Seeing as if I don't get any better and I've done all they can do for me as an out patient, I'm pretty much screwed. I am now officially a walking pharmacy, like Karen Walker from Will & Grace. Lets go over what I have to do:
1. Saline drips for my nose, slow down mucus production.
2. Inhaler four times daily.
3. One specific pill every 8 hours until gone.
4. Another specific pill 3 times daily until gone.
5. Another pill four times daily.
I've also had two injections, one antibiotic and one steroid, and omfg I could not walk the pain was horrible. I thought the steroid shot was the worst pain, um, hell no, the antibiotic was much much worse. Both were put in the same leg. I also did a breathing treatment for 5 minutes which helped out quite a bit, I wish I could just continue to do that instead of using an inhaler but I have no health insurance so that would be way too much money.
I still have not spoken about what I have. Well, when I went to the doctor Wednesday I had a sinus infection, upper respiratory infection, and laryngitis. My medication was not improving me and I continued to get a grand total of 4 hours of sleep a night from coughing and sore throat pain. I go back today after failing to improve only to find out that my "upper respiratory infection" turned out to be laryngeal stridor, which is "noisy breathing." Well that flap of muscle or whatever it is, I'm not sure I can't figure it out right now, turns out to be infected and swollen that it's causing me to basically suffocate. All I'm finding out about this is it's a defect at birth!! I'm 20 years old how do I now find out that I have a Congenital Laryngeal Stridor that is commonly found upon the first few weeks of birth. How special am I?
This is going to take forever to get over, now I kind of hope I get admitted to the damn hospital so I can get fucking drugged up and get some sleep and eat food!! I'm sure in the past four days I've lost like five pounds. All I can eat is yogurt and soup. I don't understand how I get so lucky in life. And since my dad threw a fit about me wanting to be on his health insurance he can pay the bill since he didn't want me on his in the first place.
