WAITING IN ER


I went to ER just as a precaution and with my luck the waiting room was empty. I’m anxious about recalling my symptoms and explaining myself.

I was having a good day. My coughing had increased a smidge, but I was feeling better.

My mother wanted me to spend the day with her and k. Social distancing. Lots of sanitizer and wipes.

My sister gets off work and makes herself at home. Gets upset because she doesn’t want to social distance “because I’m tired, I don’t want to move more than I should”

I began to get grumpy. She started to play with a ball point pen and coughed into the same hand holding the pen.

“Wash your hands”

“I already sanitized them” she remarked nonchalantly.

I frowned. “You coughed into your hand so wash your hands”

“I coughed into my hand I didn’t get my germs anywhere” she demonstrated with the pen in hand and coughed all over it again!

I was amazed at her stupidity. “You coughed on your hand and on the pen! Wash your hands!”

“Don’t you yell at me!” She screamed.

I was livid. I grabbed a wipe flung it at her. “I was not yelling now I’m yelling” I shouted, “I told you to wash your fucking hands! So fucking do it!”

My mom became upset not at me but at my sister “you tell us not to yell but listen at how loud you are! I spent hours disinfecting my house you can’t wash your hands?! Wash your hands!”

My sister was so irritated that she left. Ignorant fool!

So I’m still in ER.

I had an x ray, EKG, Covid, blood test, and now waiting on results ✌️
