On top of that, the doctor basically ignored me when I told her all the issues I’ve been having with the antibiotics she put me on.
I almost can’t eat anything. Everything feels like it’s coated in pepper or salt or hot peppers or something; my mouth and throat burn so fucking hot and bad that I feel like puking. Ramen and cereal seems to be the only things this doesn’t happen with, so far.
On top of that, I keep getting that sick feeling in my throat. That feeling that I didn’t swallow a pill well enough and it’s sticky in my throat.
She said, “Oh, it’s normal to be nauseous on this medicine. Just take it with a full stomach!” which was completely unhelpful.
And she also didn’t listen to me when I told her I was still having significant itchiness on my breasts.
She only seemed concerned about my pelvic exam. Which, yeah, that was the main point of the visit, but god damn it? Why should I schedule a new appointment when she’s right there?
And in related news, I have an infection. I didn’t need an exam to know that. But she’s gonna test to see what it is. She took a pap too so I could know if it traveled up from my IUD or anything like that. Won’t know about the pap until late next week at least, but the infection results will be in by Monday.
However, she said it’s been there for a while, because I’m swollen like a god damned blueberry (or… giant ass cherry, as it were, lmfao). Which explains some things, and to be honest I’m not surprised. I’ve been itching off and on for a while but I didn’t have any means to see a doctor, or a doctor to see, and I kept putting it out of my mind because I live in denial about my health always.
Hopefully I didn’t give myself PID from being a dumb piece of shit.
