Good thing you listened to your body because it was trying to tell you that something was wrong.

Sometimes people will dismiss the complaints of others -- nothing is worse than showing up at the ER and being treated like an attention-seeking, drug-seeking hypochondriac. You might have been seen sooner if you told them you were close to throwing up in their waiting area. Did you wait 2 hours before you were triaged or after?

I'm sorry that you had to go through this. I'm glad that your Mom is around to help you. Nothing beats mother love and support.

Keep us posted. People here really do care.

Yess ! Omg you are spot on. I’m definitely glad i chose to go to emergency and stay there because there’s no telling what would’ve happened if I’d gone home like i wanted to. I only waited roughly 30- 45 mins to be seen in triage then i had to wait to be brought back Bc their ED was pretty full. I was honestly pretty afraid of what they would say considering i hadn’t thrown up in their presence until I’d been brought back to a room. I was happy to see that they were able to see what was going on with me via the blood tests and Urine test that were done . Even though i could barely produce any urine since i was so dehydrated. I always get paranoid when coming to ED Bc I’ve seen first hand working in a hospital how things can be brushed off , or because you aren’t physically ill in their faces that there isn’t anything wrong . You know ?
As for my mom.. I am super thankful for her support. Unfortunately she has to work so i haven’t been able to see her too much since I’ve been admitted but she still checks on m as if she were still here.

Being a mother of four (my three oldest are all doctors. My daughter is a PharmD and my sons are medical doctors), I can tell you that your children will always be your babies. My youngest son, the "smart one", isn't interested in medicine; he's studying computer engineering.

That’s great that you have the insider info. on hospitals. I work for a hospital system but in an office setting.

      In my area, Goodwill has all women's clothing $1.50 today. Perfect timing for winter work wardrobe! Wish me luck
      Plus some cheap shopping therapy could do wonders!

        Welcome! This is a very friendly and supportive site.

        FYI, status updates get a lot fewer responses than threads. So don't feel shunned if you don't get many responses here.

        I live in Kennedale. Where are you having your surgery and which doctor? I'm being unbearably nosy here :P

        I had mine at USMD, Dr. Dyslin.

      2. Zipps

        Haha, you are fine. Thank you for the welcome! I am having my surgery with Dr Matin at Baylor Grapevine. Day is approaching fast, little nervous of course but can't wait.

      3. Orchids&Dragons

        You're not going to believe the difference. It's just so amazing to not be hungry all freakin' day long!

        CONGRATS!!!

    • AshAsh1

      So I'm having a really really really crappy day. Crappy month really.  My husbands been off work for 2 months with an injury and I've been picking up all the slack with everything. And while, I'm happy to step up to the plate and do these things, I'm getting worn out, physically and mentally. And we went to the doctor today that just pushed his recovery time out for another 2 months.
      The reason I tell you all this......
      I bought twizzlers from the vending machine... and I've been nibbling on them.....
      So much for a lifestyle change *cry face*
      Its crazy because I haven't thought about food as comfort in a very long time. But today, I broke.

        @GreenTealael

        There are still 2 Twizzlers left sitting in the wrapper... they aren't gone yet. But today the cleaning people come at work, so they will be soon! I think I'll get some satisfaction to have something left to throw away.

        I was just messing around. I don't mind being "one of the girls" LOL
