So the week has been insane. I've slept very little, ate very little, worked a lot and was doing it. I was tired, but all was pretty good. Until yesterday. Yesterday I was at work at 4 am. A little after 5, I got up to go get something and the next thing I remember is that I was on the floor. I felt so groggy and awful and it took me forver to figure out where I was and what happened.
I really had no idea what happened. In one way or another I passed out. What I'm not sure about is whether or not I had a seizure. The only thing that made me wonder if I had a seizure was that I bit my lip. Either way, something bad happened. And it took me forever to come to.
There wasn't much I could do about it. It was the open house at my camp and I wasn't leaving fo it. My boss was great about....he told me to go, but ddn't argue when I said I wouldn't. I called the doctor and he said I should go as well, and my plan to go after open house.
By time open house was over, I wasn't feeling so great. My vision had changed and I just decided to go to th hospital. The triage nurse said it probably wasn't a seizure, since I hadn't had an accident. The nurse in my room didn't agree with that. The doctor thinks it probably was a seizure since I bit my lip.
There was a bit of a fiasco about leaving. The doctor came in and asked me if I wanted to be admitted. I said no (of course!). He agreed with that as he said if I was admitted, they wanted to monitor my heart and he didn't think it had anything to do with my heart.
Secod, he wanted to know if I wanted a spinal tap to rule out menegenetis. I had the vaccine and so I said no. He was also ok with that. But whent he nurse came to discharge me, she had papers for me to sign that said I was signing out against medical advise.
I couldn't sign those. If I did, then my insurance might not cover the follow up appointments. I told the nurse that and she said she would go tell the doctor I was staying. I was ridiculously bummed. But he came in and said I didn't have to sign...basically he was trying to cover his backside. But I promised I wouldn't sue him.
