Flu Season and more...

Posted on Mon, Oct 5, 2009 at 3:19 PM

Dear walk-in clinic doctor,

I realize you are super busy and that everyone in the city has a cold or the flu right now. However, last week when I was in the same clinic because I could barely stand up straight, you guys told me I had the flu. That was grand, I went home for a week, stayed in bed, drank liquids. You said I should be fine by Friday. It's now Monday. My throat is totally messed, my lungs feel like they're on fire, I can hardly talk, and when I cough every 2 minutes, I feel like I'm going to pass out.

When I came back to see you today, because I'm obviously MUCH worse off that I was last week, thank you so much for barely looking at me and saying "you have the flu. Go home and sleep for a few days". I'm glad you are able to read what the other doctor wrote down. I'm glad you had time to look at me, but honestly? I'm seriously concerned about the fact that I can hardly breathe...
