I know I have a sinus infection... but yeah... can't really take off work to go see the doc. Anything over the counter I can take?


No, it's an infection. You need medical attention. Don't be an idiot. Dodgy
We've already used up our doctor's visits for the year that is covered by insurance. It will have to come out of pocket... can't really afford any medical bills at this time. We're already paying off thousands in medical bills...

That's why I'm wondering if there is anything else I can do.

What the actual fuck? There is a limit on the number of times you can visit a doctor for free in the USA? Blink

WTAF? It's January fucking 30th! How can that be?

RE: Yellow snot
Try this over the counter solution (literally):

Clean you right out

It might not get rid of the infection quickly, but it may reduce the snot content leaving less real estate for those little buggers to expand and call home.

Hmm... let's see...

Over the counter packet of pills that might slightly relieve symptoms or at least make them tolerable for 48 hours - $9.95
Exposing infant and toddler to possibly infectious infection causing them suffering and a unaffordable doctor visits - $70.00 each
- their medications will be a ten day run of antibiotics - $30.00 each
Extended hospital stay when the infection moves to your heart or brain or both - $14,000.95

But don't worry - your funeral is probably already covered by your life insurance policy. Thumbsup

We have free clinics, but the wait time is ~6 hours to see a doctor. I don't have time to do that.

That's some seriously crappy health insurance. I hesitate to even call it insurance.

RE: Yellow snot
Its reading threads like this that make me realise how lucky I am in the uk.

*Hugs NHS*

"Fuck you capitalists....your not having it" No

All you will probably need is some antibiotics KC.

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

-Bemore.
