Feel better soon! Glad you’re admitted and being taken care of.
It does get better once this gets worked out- hang in there

What state are you in? Just curious if there’s a time zone difference from me- I’m in MN.

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.
