Sunday evening I was suddenly hit with the flu bug. I felt fine all day then within no more than an hour I went from feeling fine to feeling really, really bad. So yesterday evening after my husband got home from work we went to the local Urgent Care center. Horrible, horrible experience. We must have spent at least an hour in the tiny, crowded waiting room with the uncomfortable chairs. Then they finally called me back and I had to spend more time just waiting. Why the hell did they call me back there if I they weren’t ready for me yet? The urgent care center we went to when we lived in Virginia was much more efficient.
After we finally got done there we went to Walgreen’s to get my prescriptions filled. They said it would be about 15 minutes so we went to a drive by ATM and then to get my hungry husband something to eat at a nearby fast food place, which took well over 15 minutes but when we got back to Walgreen’s the prescriptions still weren’t ready yet so we had to wait some more. It’s a good thing I don’t feel like going anywhere today because if I had to wait one more time I might just lose it.
I know I should have got a flu shot and I was planning on it last fall but when I called my doctor’s office about getting one they said they wouldn’t have any until “next week” and then next week it was “next week” again and this went on for several weeks so I gave up for a while, intending to try again in a few weeks or go somewhere else but I never got around to it.
Anyway, the overpriced drugs are working but I’m in sort of a fog and still don’t feel like doing much of anything.
