So I’ve been pretty sick the last couple weeks, getting worse and worse, loopier and loopier. Basically been unable to do anything. Can’t think straight.
I woke up today to take out the trash, and noticed that the snotrags I was using had blood spackled on them, presumably from all the coughing I’ve been doing, and there are blood streaks in my toilet from blood in my vomit.
I was too out of it / loopy to notice or possibly care, I don’t remember.
I’m kinda pissed at myself that I didn’t go to a doctor. Probably will tomorrow.
Yes go to the doctor. I get blood when I blow my nose sometimes, but that’s mainly from having weak capillaries (something I’ve had since I was a kid, I get high altitude nosebleeds too.) But blood in your vomit is seriously bad news.
A few years ago I went to a doctor’s office - for the first time in a decade or two. My injured finger was not healing as quickly as my wife said was ok. It was broken, a “spiral” fracture they said. A nurse told me I was a great example of why married men lived longer (because our wives make us see a doctor).
OTOH, the healing had already begun and my low tech splint (TWO band-aids - one for each knuckle!) had done a good enough job setting it that it wasn’t worth rebreaking & getting a professional alignment.
Blood does sound like the stakes are higher than a simple mechanical problem though.
