So this happened…
Today a patient of mine walked in stating that she MAY get us sick because she’s been around the COVID-19 virus. She is a USPS worker and someone in her office was tested positive for it. She came in coughing, not covering her mouth and just stating “if you guys get sick, it’s because of me”.
Now, I’ve been sick all week. I’ve been feeling tired. I’ve lost my appetite. I have on and off again fever. My chest hurts. But I’m still trucking on. And when she sees me she says “you’re the first one that’s going to get sick from this. I’m calling it.”
My dad has a lung condition and he has a ventilator at home. When he heard of my symptoms, he quickly went to my room and gave me his ventilator.
My chest still hurts but I heard that no clinic is taking patients right now. And even if I did go, they wouldn’t treat me.
So I’m staying in my room. And I feel like shit. It’s hard for me to breathe but I keep telling myself it will be okay.
Sorry for the post, guys. I just wanted to share this with you.
For some, this whole situation is ridiculous and it may seem that way at first, until it hits you.
