So, we couldn’t see our primary care provider until April 2nd, and we suspected we had Thrush. We couldn’t use our local urgent care either as we had to be with that specific medical group with primary care and we are not. Plus, our insurance doesn’t cover that urgent care anyway, so we ended up going to the ER. I know, I know, thrush isn’t considered a life-threatening emergency, but we really didn’t have any other options. We also tried to ask about nutrition, figured it was worth a shot, but the doctor, though sympathetic to our story, couldn’t do anything. She was really nice and listend to us talk, and she had a good bedside manner. We got there at around 7 and waited for about 5 hours before being seen. Needless to say, our joints were screaming by the time we got a room. They apologized for the long wait and said that a lot of people had been coming in sick and that it had been that way for the past month.

I finally got out of there around midnight!! And I tried to call the cab company I usually use, and they didn’t answer at all. I called them 9 times!! And finally security called another company, and it turns out, they were even cheaper than the other one that I used. So it all worked out, and the doctor gave me a prescription liquid medication/mouthwash that I have to swish three times a day. So, all-in-all it was an interesting, but very very long day.
