You are here

In lockdown

I had a doctor's appointment today. They rang and told me not to come in, he will ring me.
I can't leave the house until this virus problem is over. I can't even go for a ride on my pushie.
My problem is that I have no adrenal glands. Your adrenal glands produce cortisol, which regulates your immune system through your stress response.
I take cortisol replacement tablets and triple my dosage if I get sick. They are great, they would fix a hangover in 20 minutes, a cold sniffle is gone in a few hours. I call them my magic bullets. If I get really sick and my doctor gets scared for me they give me massive cortisol doses intravenously in hospital.
My problem is that cortisol is an anti-inflammitary. Anti-inflammitaries make Covid19 worse. So, my magic bullets can't be used with this one.
It's scary for me. I guess I'll have to apply Rule 3 from Al's list the other night.
There are many other people out there like me.
Please, everyone take Covid 19 seriously. Someone's life could depend on it.
I'll be fine, just so long as the pretty little Asian doctor doesn't sit on the side of my hospital bed again and hold my hand. (that's another story)

Too bad if you had a rectal prostrate examination appointment, itโ€™d be a bit hard doing that one over the phone ๐Ÿ“ž

She was a lovely young lady.
I was a bit crook. I was having a major addisonian crisis.
The IV cortisol wasn't working.
She told me that they didn't know how to make me better.

All the best David. I think we're all hoping the pretty little Asian Doctor does home visits for you. For *cough* medical purposes only of course..
