I Am Going Through A Health Scare

I went to the ER this weekend.  They did an X-Ray and found a bone lesion in one of my ribs.  It looks  benign, but they want to do one more test to be sure.

A few years back I was diagnosed with a hereditary immune deficiency.  Since than I have been a bit of a hypochondriac.  Sorry but, I have a week immune system and I worry about everything.

I don’t drive and pretty much walk everywhere.  This includes the grocery store.  A few weeks ago I mad a trip to the store.  In the cross walk on the way to the store I passed by a dead squirrel.  I took notice of what appeared to be a smile on its face.  On my way back home I crossed through the same cross walk forgetting about the dead squirrel.  By now it had been run over and splattered all over the cross walk.

I couldn’t get the idea out of my mind that some fluids from the squirrel on my shoes and got infected with rabies.  Even though it was impossible that I did.  I couldn’t get the idea out of my mind.  Every ache and pain.  Even those that are normal for me highlighted the thought.

It got to the point that I couldn’t sleep.  So around 4:00 am.  I got up, got dressed and walked to the ER.

I had started coughing a lot that night which is why i think the doctor ordered the X-Ray.

At this point I am waiting for a call from the radiologist to set up the next test.
