I’m being ripped apart inside – so much fun? No. no fun over here. So yesterday I forced myself to, painfully, get dressed and my hubby took me to the Grey Nuns ER. The website said that the estimates wait times were 1hr and about 45 minutes. Since I’m wondering if I tore scar tissue or something, we decided a trip to the hospital should probably happen. However, when we arrived, holy cow!! The ER was busier than I’ve ever seen it. (And I have seen many ER’s in my time.) From past experience we decided, well my hubby predicted that the wait time was likely closer to 6 hours!!!! It was ridiculously busy. I turned to my hubby and said, ,”I hurt too much to sit here waiting forever to tell someone I hurt too much!” He laughed and said, ” You hurt too much to stay, but you’re here because of how much you hurt!” “Exactly!” I said, “I want to go home!!” So I came home and went to bed for a few hours instead. Good call?? I don’t know. But I’m going to call my Dr tomorrow.
Okay, pet-peeve here…people who go to the ER for STUPID THINGS!!!! I’m sorry that you have a cold or the flu…GO HOME!! Go to a walk-in dr’s clinic, go somewhere, but NOT the ER!!! You are taking valuable space away from people who truly need to see a dr immediately for something serious! I mean, yes, I’m judging, and I clearly don’t know why everyone was there yesterday, but being sick isn’t an emergency, it’s just not! That’s just a small vent, but I had to get it out, it just frustrates me!!
I think that I’m going to head to bed. My damn body hurts! Good night all! XOX
