My eyes are itchy. Maybe i’m getting conjunctivitis. I better google early warning signs of conjunctivitis.
Okay so it says that it would be itchy and watery and red.. my eyes are definitely itchy and i think they are watery.
Oh god they are kind of pink maybe that is what happens before it goes full on red.
What I hear in my head: Okay don’t panic just go about your day like normal and monitor your symptoms.
There are so many people here everyone seems sick. What if I catch something.
Okay everything will be fine just try to avoid getting too close to people.
Someone just coughed near you. What do you think they have. Could it just be a cold? No it definitely sounded much worse than that!
My throat feels sore. Do I have a fever I better check to be sure.
Oh god. It is higher than usual.
My chest is starting to feel funny.
I feel like I can’t get enough oxygen in.
I better google it to be sure everything is okay.
Chest infection, lung failure, pulmonary edema, meningitis
Okay don’t panic. DO NOT PANIC
Lets check my blood pressure.
That doesn’t seem very normal. My numbers are significantly different to what it usually is at this time.
Lets book an appointment with a doctor as soon as possible.
No doctors are open this late at night.
Maybe you should go to the emergency room. It could be serious.
I’ll just book an appointment for first thing tomorrow.
What if you die in your sleep?
What if you start to to choke in your sleep. if its a lung problem that is very possible. If its meningitis you most definitely will end up dying in your sleep.
I’ll just sit down and take my temperature and blood pressure every 10 minutes to look for signs of improvement. I’ll also monitor if my cough is getting worse.
maybe I should read some articles about what happens in cased with pulmonary issues.
Look at that. It looks so painful. Can you deal with that amount of pain?
Okay well I just won’t sleep tonight.
