So as some of you may already know, I have a history of having hilarious stories. I don't know why my life is so freaking hilarious, because for me it's traumatizing.

TODAY I HAVE ANOTHER STORY. Which may or may not turn into a rant. Not sure yet.

Anyway, for the past two months or so, I have been constantly sick. It started with a night out with friends (no booze! I swear!) and ended up with me vomiting once that night, once during the week during my birthday (resulting in my dismissal from school, can't say I'm too sorry), and... today. I've also had a cold, a cough, the flu, pink eye, a sinus infection, and a really messed up circadian rhythm.

Today during lunch I threw up, left school, and as soon as I got home I began to throw up. Like, constantly. It stopped for a few hours (I could text work! First helpful thing all day!) and during that time I was a productive person.

Until I started throwing up blood. Yeah, that's right, BLOOD. Tastes like iron, y'know. That stuff. It was coming from my stomach.

So I drove myself to the ER. As soon as I walked in I dove for the nearest trash can and began to vomit more blood.

Of course, any other ER would be like "OH MY GOODNESS. DOCTORS! EEEP" -- but this one was like "You need to check in, sweetie. What is your name, address, date of birth, insurance coverage, age.....?"

Me: asdfghjkl HURRY UP *vomit*

A nurse at that point said to me, "Well, sh**, gurl, this sucks." I just want to say thanks to Cpt. Obvious.

Eventually I get my nice wonderful bracelet with my name on it and a doctor leads me back to his wonderful White Room, where the first question is: "Okay, young lady, when did this happen?"

I vomited into my bucket and groaned out, "TWO SECONDS AGO."

The doctor tells me, "Dang, gurl, calm down! We have to get through the preliminary questions first."

Eventually, though, I was administred medication via IV that allowed me to stop choking on my own vomit and eventually stop vomiting. YAY FORK.

And then they told me to come back if the blood vomit continues.

And charged me $1000.

You know, for $1000, I would like to have gotten advisory as to what possible issues I may have. I just got sent away with, "Come back again!"

So I guess I might have to.


So have fun reading, y'all :)
