rants: not feeling well today… back at 60%
I still feel as if someone’s kicked my in the ribs. As precaution and curiosity, I checked for broken ribs to avail.
The pain was so debilitating that I couldn’t even move since any effort usually meant an increase in respiration. I even wondered if it was a mild case of thrombosis.
Two days latter (today), I still have trouble breathing, limited lung capacity, but I’m much better than this past Tuesday.
I haven’t slept well though. I woke up about six (6) times last night in bed till the pain would wake me up and then sleeping on an office chair with my head on a pillow against a wall. It was a tiring cycle but it was the only way I could rest. At least, it was better than the night before when I woke up in so much pain that I couldn’t breath or move and stayed gasping for air for a good five long seconds.
Needless to say (type), if today I feel any worse, I’ll drag myself to the nearest good hospital — either (in order of preference)
- Long Island Jewish Medical Center (20.5 miles, 34 minutes),
- NYU Langone Medical Center (4.6 miles, 12 minutes)
- or New York Presbyterian (3.5 miles, 11 minutes).
Of course, the latter would include a $600 bill for the ambulance ride. NYDF/EMT makes a lot of money on the hurt and dying.
Maybe it may really be time to get those forms for Advance Planning For End of Life Services ready.
