What a Nightmare!

I woke up yesterday morning at 2:00 a.m. with a terrible ear ache. I couldn't go back to sleep because it hurt so bad. So I called my doctor and went in yesterday afternoon and he gave me an anit-biotic for the infection.
So at 2:00 a.m. this morning I woke up so sick at my stomach. Well never once did I connect this to the anti biotic. Mistake one!
Then I took my next dose of the med at breakfast and about one hour later, I started closing up. Still living in la la land, I thought whatever I had was just going to my chest. Mistake 2! By 10:00 a.m., I started having breathing problems. Then it hit me, I am allergic to the medicine!
So I called my allergy doctor who is the only doctor I have that knows how fast I can shut down and knows how to stop it. Well I spent the next 2 hours in his office getting a steroid shot, epinepherine shot and shaking from head to toe. If you have ever had all this medicine at once, you know what it does to you. If not, just let me tell you, you aren't missing anything.LOL It makes me so hyper I can't stand myself and then they wouldn't let me leave until they saw if it was going to work. I had to sit in the office going crazy!LOL And then I had to take a rocepherine shot. OUCH!! they hurt. My arm still hurts.
But luckily I figured out what was wrong before I took another pill! And thank God for Dr. Pienkowski's office for knowing what to do!!
I went to the ER twice when this happened and they stand there and won't do anything until they check your oxygen level and run all these tests. I finally got mad the last time and got into it with the nurse and told her that I could have driven home took all my medicine ant gotten back over there before they gave me a stupid breathing treatment and that I would never go back to the ER with this problem. So now I just go straight to my doctor.
But anyway, it looks like I am going to live.LOLOLOL So just say a little prayer for me so that I can get better so that I can get done what I need to get done before Christmas. Until next time...
