Another day, another blood test

One should never google ones symptoms — it’s likely to make you a hypochondriac. So anyway, when I googled for my various symptoms, all I got was lots of people saying “these are my test results, and here’s what’s going on, and no one knows what it means!” The one place you don’t want to be an engima is in a doctor’s office I think… Oh well.

    That sucks! Hopefully they will be able to figure out your situation soon. And hopefully it is nothing to worry about too.

    There’s nothing quite like doctors saying “oh god, I’ve never seen anything like that”.

    Almost as good as a waxer saying to me ‘oh my, you are quite hairy aren’t you!’…

    I’m curious… with all the blackwork on your arms, do medical professionals have troubles finding a vein on you? If a person had a lot of blackwork on their arms, would it be more difficult?

    The closest a doctor ever came was one who said, “I know you look this stuff up on-line, and you’ve checked into your symptoms, but I want to assure you, we’re going to get you through this. You’re not going to die.

    Oddly, I hadn’t even considered that I wouldn’t get through it, since I had, correctly, figured out that I had kidney stones. The doctor didn’t figure that out for another 2 weeks. I never did figure out what he thought I would have run across on-line that would lead me to thing I was going to die.

    You were doing better, doctoring yourself as Hippocrates suggested. You know better than they and you know it, eh?

One Trackback/Pingback

  1. […] had some more blood taken today. Not as much as last time, because today’s test was a simple one, but it took a lot of poking to get it out. […]

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
