Every physician thinks about fulfilling his or her need to "help others", we are concerned with providing emotional, physical and pharmacological support. Many times we sacrifice our well-being to fulfill this "self-imposed" mission.
Now... I want to tell you my most recent story
The logistics were organized in such a way that health personnel were first in line to receive the benefit of the vaccine, and we, being in the "line of fire" as we were from Anesthesiology, were not going to be the exception.
The day arrived, we were all happy, we moved massively so that no one in the service would miss this much-needed appointment.
In my first dose there was no such severe discomfort, after two days there was a sore throat, headache, malaise and general discomfort. That lasted 3 days, I only took treatment for my symptoms and hot tea at night.
The problem came with the second dose...
The next days were the same or worse...
In addition, I got a rash, it was not annoying in itself, but the concern it generated in me was tremendous. I finally went to an internist hoping to get an answer that would alleviate my fears, but since the symptoms were so scattered there were two possibilities:
- Side effects or COVID
I had to be patient, oh no! And you have to be patient for that! 🤯
My advice is: "Before worrying, it is better to get busy". Take the necessary measures and be prepared for the worst, so that you do not neglect timely diagnosis.
Moral: The world needs more empathy, let's not wait to go through things to be able to understand the needs of others, inside all of us lives an excellent person.
Thanks for reading me, until the next post.✨
