I'm sick!

I am sick at the moment and for the first time in ages it's not an eye related illness thanks be to god, I am fed up hearing "Conjunctivitis" being said around me or other words associated with it like red eyes etc. Gah drives me mad, I have had it 3 times this summer, and i am hoping its not going to rear its ugly head again!

Anyway this illness is completely unrelated but also unconfortable, I had been suffering from ongoing pains since Monday but just couldn't make anytime to go to the doctor to get myself checked out so I just kept avoiding it and hoped it would go away, no such luck.

So today I finished college at 12 and went straight home and went to my doctor to make an appointment, but it was still closed for lunch, this was at 1:20 they close for lunch between 12:30- 1:30. Finally I got in and organised an appointment. Only to realise there was only a male doctor in today, and that wouldn't do.

So then I headed to the next doctor and they were also closed for lunch but between 1-2 ahhhh drive me crazy!! Then I found another one beside Mcdonalds, the same story so then I decided to just buy food and wait. I got a chicken wrap yummy!!

Then I tried the closest doctor, no free appointments today and then I tried the third doctor, no free appointments til tommorrow... but luckily the receptionist was really nice and told me to come back at 5:10 and i would be seen.

So I went in and was diagnosed with a bladder infection :( Apparently I am not drinking enough water. So whe put me on antibiotics and said I should be better by next monday! so fingers crossed.


  1. Wait wait wait. If your sick you can go to almost any doctor and get an appointment right away!? God dammit I hate the American healthcare system! What about all that BS that you have to wait 3 months for treatment? Your lucky to live in a modern country.

  2. I hope you are better by now. Best!
