What a day~

Icon 4 Comments
For the past week, I've had a few slight breathing problems. Nothing major, just a lack of air every couple of days. But today, while I was getting ready, I lost my breath. I figured it would pass after time, but it didn't seem to. After 40 minutes, I managed to pull together the strength to walk downstairs, and I went to the hospital at 2:30pm. I only got home 45 minutes ago (9pm) and I'm absolutely knackered.

I went to the local hospital, and they ran a few tests, and there were a few abnormalities. So, I ended up being sent to Stafford hospital, which is about 30/40 minutes on the bus.

I had to wear one of those gowns. -_- But I didn't get my arse out, I kept my underwear on :lol:

Anyway, they took some blood (quite a bit) and I had to have an x-ray. At about 7:50pm, the doctor came in. "There's nothing wrong with you. All that we think it could be is a panic attack."

What a waste of a day!

At least I know I'm clear, for now, I guess. :)

I'm finished whinging now, so that's it for today. It's been quite uneventful, to be honest.

Was an expensive visit or did England ever implement socialized medicine?

It was free, thanks to the NHS :)

Good thing you weren't dying. A guy went into the clinic with a broken jaw from a rugby match and they told him to come back the next day 'cause it was crowded.

Yeah I wish we had socialized medicine in the states. I went into the emergency room with gall bladder problems, stayed for about 2 hours and walked out with a $3500 bill.
