I just finished a 24 hour bout of the stomach flu. I woke up early Monday morning around 3 am with my stomach rumbling and barely made it to the bathroom before emptying last night’s supper into the toilet. At first I thought it might be a case of food poisoning, but the later on in the day it went, I started running a fever, so I was pretty sure I had the stomach bug or flu. This is definitely one of those times I could have used the Walgreens Health Care Clinic Nashville.
Our family does not go to the doctor unless it is a dire necessity. I try very hard to figure out what is wrong with us before we go, so that if it can be taken care of by using over the counter medicines or alternative medicines, we can take care of it ourselves — except those times when a doctor’s advice is necessary.
Like for instance —
The time my son was playing football outside with his friends. They were playing in the church parking lot and he ran for the ball. He had his old shoes on, which meant that the sole of the shoe had NO traction whatsoever. Being on black pavement with old shoes — anyone knows what happens next.
He jumped up for the ball and as he came down, his foot slipped and twisted and he went down hard. He just knew he had broken his ankle and messed everything up.
We rushed him to the doctor and after almost $500 in xrays and treatments, we found out he had only sprained his ankle. His growth plate (which is VERY important at that age) had not been messed up and he had not broken anything.
At that point — we could have totally used the Health Care Clinic Nashville which could have saved us a TON of time and money.
Or how about this time —
The time my daughter got head lice and I had NO clue how she got it. She was covered in it and I freaked. We were homeschooling, so it had to be someone from our neighborhood. Luckily, none of us got it. It would have been nice to be able to talk to someone about how to handle it and what to do. I basically had to learn how to get rid of it all on my own.
Another time it could have come in handy for me —
When I discovered I had mono. It was the most horrible month of my entire life.
In fact, I had no clue what was wrong with me and after 3 days of being sick and barely able to hold my eyes open, I finally went to the emergency room to see what was wrong with me.
In the picture above, I had a raging fever and had been sick for about 5 days. This was the first time I had my eyes open at all. I knew whatever it was, it was more serious than just a regular doctor visit — or so I thought.
words of advice — never go to the ER first.
The bill I got for this visit was over $6,000. They started with the worst case scenario of a brain scan because I had a major headache for 5 days that did not go away.
From there, they did xrays, ultrasounds, etc. The last and final step was a blood test which showed that I had mono.
They could have done that first — but they did not.
At the Walgreens Health Care Clinic in Nashville, the cost for a mono test is only $11.
What a HUGE difference.
