Judy . . . YES!! it is hard to make that decision. And given my recent ER experiences with other family members, where I was the one who insisted that they go . . . I was sorely disappointed. But I've been rethinking my stand on this . . . when I am in extreme pain, I can't stand for ANYone to see me grimace, grunt, groan or moan . . . so I go hide. The thought of going to the ER where you are being talked at while you are in pain is hard for me to cope with . . . but I don't want to be stupid about
it either. For me, its been my bowel issues (ewwww). But am seeing a specialist in a week . . .
Judy . . . this is a good topic because we really need to put all the excuses aside and get in to the ER when things get really bad. Its advice that you and I give people here all the time. I guess we should follow our own advice.
