Hope Xerxes is doing better....

I got misdiagnosed three times in the ER for something as common as a gallbladder attack. It was the worst pain of my life, and definitely relate to the "hospital yet???" convo. As I was crying from pain, and my partner was like "hey uh maybe the ER?" I was like "nah... tis a scratch" but then as it did not subside at all I was like holy shit am I dying? because i might be dying?

That god-awful pain, it wrapped all around my rib/shoulder area - I wouldn't have guessed gallbladder, honestly - I associated that with lots of puking and whatnot.

The hospital staff, though treated me well, definitely didn't diagnose me properly until I turned up the third time completely jaundiced...
