Free health care is painful

2009-09-19 21:58:53 by Shiraikigu

Well, good news, I'm finally out of the hospital (Yay! This was old news). I went there Sept. 9 and came out on the 11th. My reason for it being I had a kidney infection...at least that's what the doctor who prescribed the meds to me said. I kind of had mixed results and it really confuses me as to what exactly was wrong with me this time. The results were the same in the end: if I didn't go to the hospital when I did, I "could have" died. Personally I think they were over exaggerating, but after researching each of the illnesses doctors wild guesses I had, I must say, yes that was true. I feel that this is odd seeing as how I went in with a fever and pain in my side when I tried to breathe.

You know what I hate most about the hospital I went to though? They would see me for ten hours. I kid you not. I went in at around 1 in the afternoon, and I got in at around midnight. What I felt was worse was the hospital policy of no eating or drinking until the doctor saw you. Please realize that because I had some fever (kidney infection) I didn't eat breakfast, and I didn't drink since my boyfriend came in to rush me to the doctors. Looking back though I must say the look on my mothers face was hilarious when the doctor told her I was "obviously dehydrated". Still though I have no rights to complain, after all, it was all paid for by the government.

But seriously guys, I'm fine now. read that before you comment. I'm back and I'm ready to go do the things I love best. If you would like to chat, leave a comment, I'll tell you interesting things that happened while I was at the hospital.

Good to hear you're back and doing well. I've had that "could have died" twice in regard to ending up with walking pneumonia. They always say, "If you hadn't come in today, you could have died! What were you thinking?" My reply was always, "My immune system is there for a reason and I felt like I could keep going."

Shiraikigu responds:

lol, yeah I kinda understand. I seriously thought I just had a really bad fever, I didn't know I was going to "die" if I didn't go to the hospital.

good to know your allright. I also enjoyed the Ode to the Fairy goddess, though you must try not to sing through your nose and always sing breathing through your stomach. Unless if you are Eros Ramazotti :P

Shiraikigu responds:

To tell you the truth I know no other way to sing. I mean no one told me how to "sing from the diaphragm" or that what I am doing can't sustain itself until recently. Fortunately I'm taking a vocal class, which should help me out. Thanks though!

I'm glad to know you're feeling better now. You need to take better care of yourself from now on.

BTW, I forwarded the voice clips to Osuka so he can finish his flash. Thanks again in advance.

Shiraikigu responds:

Thanks! And I think I should feel offended, of course I'm taking care of myself, I can't help it if I got whatever I got. I have no idea what I did wrong. Personally I blame it on eating the food at the exhibition... so no more outing for me for a while. Either way there's no way to avoid sickness, it's a fact of life ^_^ I can only be happy to be alive.
Again I emphasize I didn't feel my life was being threatened. To tell you the truth, I don't like seeing doctors when I'm sick with just a flu (or else I'd be there every day). I only went because my boyfriend said please.

Wow. Well im glad that you feel better now. Try to drink a lot of water to clean the kidney. I know that for the dehydratation people drinks gatorade but dont ever try it, the minerals can make kidney stones. A friend told me that and he have a lot of experience with kidney stones.

Shiraikigu responds:

Hey I'm fine now, and personally I don't really like the taste of gatorade. Thanks for the advise though.

It may be a late comment and you don't know me at all - but be careful. People underestimate blood tests; especially for potential kidney/liver problems. They're good for monitoring overall health anyway. I'd recommend taking a quick blood test now and then. I don't know how Canada's health system works, but you should be able to request kidney/liver or endocrine-specific analysis. I discovered serious albeit not life-threatening autoimmune diseases from such a test.

Not that I'm claiming to be an expert that fully understands what your ailment was, but talk of mixed results and possible death sound unpleasant; and I'd consider getting into the habit of going in for blood tests as a future precaution.

Hey, noticed you're still on dA... and that I had a kidney stone attack this past Monday (thought it might be an infection, but that was after I though it was a severe muscle spasm), and expelled it a few hours ago!
Any chance you'll come back to NG? Heard your voice on a movie and was just wondering if you still VA.
