I do not even know where to begin about the last few days. The last few days have been good days but also days of hell when it came to my health. Women, don’t you hate it when you are not taken seriously when it comes to problems that you are having? I am so sick of it, it happened to me over 4 years ago and almost killed me, and now it is happening again and I am to the point I want to throw my hands up in the air and say “fuck it, you win” .
It started Sunday night, the night of the Alice Cooper concert (that is going to be a different post, with pictures) anyway, during the concert I started to get chest pains. I sat down and they seemed to get better, but it felt like a ton of bricks on my chest, and it was harder for me to breath, but they got better and I didn’t think too much of it. Yesterday morning we got up and went to KennyWood Amusement Park. I promised Xavier this for days, and I was just as excited. We just get there and we are standing in line to buy tickets when I started to get really light headed. I told Andrew I thought I was going to pass out, next thing I know I am opening my eyes on the ground and everyone looking at me telling me not to get up. Passed out, thank goodness Andrew caught me. The people at Kennywood were really nice about it, brought me to the medic station, took my vitals everything was fine. I did the dumb thing, I know it was dumb at the time but I did it anyway, I stayed at the park. Moms…seriously tell me you don’t do crazy things for your kids. Well I kept drinking tons of water and picking on food all day….in the middle of the day I started walking and I got the chest pains again and the shortness of breath. It brought back all my memories of having a Pulmonary Embolism 4 years ago, it honestly felt just like it and I would NEVER compare anything to that if it didn’t bring back memories, it nearly killed me for goodness sake. Andrew took me right to Allegheny General Hospital. I went there because my doctors that saved my life are out of there and I really trust that hospital for that type of emergency. I got there, there was over 70 people within the Emergency Room but they took me right back because of my history and being pregnant. To cut that short, all my tests came back negative for a PE..well the ones they could do since I am 15 weeks pregnant. Hell ya I am excited about that but they couldn’t give me answers to why I was still light headed and dizzy…and still had chest pains. They even called my OBGYN group there and they told me to make a follow up with them in the morning.
That brings me to today….dun dun dun. Wake up still feeling light headed, shortness of breath….all that fun stuff. Called my OBGYN (there are a group of doctors there) to make an appt, the secretary was a bitch (and I do not use that word lightly) and told me that I couldn’t be seen until Wednesday. I called back and spoke with someone else and they got me in today. I get there toady and saw a doctor I never seen before. This women wasn’t a bitch…she was a cunt (and I never say that). First she reprimanded me and told me that I shouldn’t be there for chest pains I should be at a Cardiologist and explained to me what that was….duh. Then she got caught up on how I stayed at the park yesterday after I passed out….well sorry women, sometimes we put our kids first. I even said I knew it wasn’t smart, but that is my kid. THEN she told me that I shouldn’t of went to AGH’s ER because they are out of Sewickley. That is when I spoke up and said I thought I had a PE so I went to the nearest ER….why does it matter which one I go to. She told me that if I didn’t like Sewickley’s ER that I shouldn’t be delivering there. Yes, this doctor told me I shouldn’t be using them….! WOMEN, I trust AGH because the people that saved my life are out of there, of course I am going to go back there if I think that I am having a PE…. THEY SAVED MY LIFE….SEWICKLEY SENT ME HOME.
Okay, that brings me to where I am now. At home blogging, with chest pains and shortness of breath because that is what happened at my appointment…that I was supposed to be seen for today. Oh ya, I got a name and number of a heart doctor that cannot see me for over a month. Really? She was like “if you really are having that bad of chest pains, you should be at the ER not here” THESE ARE THE DOCTORS I AM PAYING TO DELIVER MY BABY!?!??!?!??!! Ya, not going to happen. I am calling and reporting this doctor in the morning and also following it up with a nasty letter because everything is better in writing and when you write something, it is all there exactly how you want it read, and no one can say you said something you didn’t…just let me calling this doctor a cunt on this blog…I want you to know that is exactly how I feel about her.
Oh ya, she did do one thing, she listened to the baby and he/she is okay….which is good, but its not good if there is something wrong with ME!
That is my past few days. I just had to get this off my chest, maybe then the pain will stop? Who knows….but I am really annoyed and cannot believe how I was treated.
