so i'm going to die....sometime

well, i am going to college in the fall, and thusly i am getting vaccinations and tests left and right. one of the tests was for tuberculosis. so to that i was all "no way is that necessary, i mean, i'm an american...do we even have that here anymore?". oh, but apparently we do.

and of course, i went this morning to get my test read, and o yes, i "possibly" have it. so i have to go to a pulmonary specialist and get all sorts of tests run now.

so if i have it i go on meds that "may" deteriorate my liver (read: my drinking capacity would be forever lowered). oh yeah, and uhh it will kill me.


to that.

I'm sorry.
(((((((((hug))))))))))))
But the word 'possibly' means that maybe you won't get it. *tries to consolate, but sees that this didn't work*

you may have a fatal disease and you're worried you can't get drunk?

good luck though...i hope you don't have it. it does piss me off though when doctors worry people to death with "maybe" or "possibly" when it's highly unlikely the patient doesn't have whatever the doctor thinks they do.

well, i will die some time, no doubt not from this. i'm just pissed at the ambiguity of the whole situation, like say yes or no if i've got it and yes or no if you can do something about it. none of this "maybe" "possibly" bullshit.

khandaha...i am trying to make it a bit lighter for myself to take. yes, i understand the consequences, but a bit of morbid humor never hurt anyone.


thanks for the hugs.

I've only knew one person who ever had TB...uhm...nevermind...but that was something like 20 years ago


I'm sure everything will be fine.

That's a total bitch, Lilly...no other way to really describe it.

I hope everything works out all right for you. *hug*

Oh yes, Ive dealt with DRs and their "maybes" before!!!
Lately, its been "could be's" .
You listen to them, you do your own research, it scares the h*** outta you, and you realize you could even die from this. The thought that what I have could kill me terrifies me everyday...
Like the others say though, I'm sure you'll be okay. Just make sure you've got healthcare, and try to find another DR if the care youre getting isnt good enough. Never settle for less. I wish I didnt have to!

TB won't kill you if you detect it early and take the medicine. I have to get a TB test every few years as a condition of employment. A friend of mine had TB when she was a child, and she's just fine with four extremely healthy children. Don't be scared, Lilly. TB kills people who don't have access to health care, or who don't follow through with their meds.

You'll be fine.
