Have Some Sympathy, For Crying Out Loud

| Working | March 20, 2013

(I’ve been having severe stomach cramps for three days. My doctor sends me to the ER to get an appendix, gallbladder, and kidney ultrasound. I’m in a wheelchair in the ER waiting room with my mom, as the stomach pain has progressed to the point where I cannot walk without assistance.)

Registrar: “[My name]?”

Me: “Over here.”

Registrar: “Let’s get you registered.” *to my mom* “You need to stay out here.”

(The registrar wheels me away quickly. As she does so, another wave of severe cramps hit me and I start to cry.)

Registrar: “WHY are you CRYING? We won’t be gone that long.”

Me: “BECAUSE I’M IN PAIN, THAT’S WHY!”

Registrar: *shuts up*

(Turns out I had gallstones and pancreatitis! I had a very good reason to cry, Ms. Registrar!)
