RE: Yellow snot
Er, yuk!
But seriously, where your health is concerned it seems silly to quibble over costs, though I don't really blame you.
I was recently sent for an unrequested blood test, not recommended since 2010, and charged $30 non refundable, above the usual medibank rebate.

That's a relief. But, what do you mean "you don't have time to do that"? Your physical well-being (and, in extent, that of your family) should have top priority.

I'm the only one that works in the household. If I don't work, I don't get paid.

I do have sick days, but they are limited... I only use them if I absolutely cannot go to work. Likewise, if I take a sick day, I can't get overtime.

That's some seriously crappy health insurance. I hesitate to even call it insurance.
Nah, it's good. We just skimped on the doctor visits because when we got the insurance we never really got sick. Increasing the doctor visits ups the monthly premium by over $100.

OK, so you're ahead by over $1200. Now you can afford a visit to the freakin' doctor.

RE: Yellow snot
Insurance that only lets you go twice a year... what the actual fuck... is that combined or per person? Even per person that's a huge rip off. You see, this is why we need state-sponsored health care.

Hope it gets better, man.

Well, that does really suck. 'Hope you'll find some way to deal with it. Undecided

And, it's not just a tinge... it's pretty yellow.

If so, I've been like this for a month or so, and I can't get rid of it. Ugh... whatever I have makes me feel like complete crap.

Yellow means you have a sinus infection. Go to Urgent Care, (or one of the on-line RX places...costs about $30.00) and get an antibiotic. (a Z-Pac, (Azithromycin)). You'll be better in 2-3 days. Maybe 1. If you don't and it gets in your blood you go to the hospital, and get septic, you risk your life. Infection is nothing to mess with.

RE: Yellow snot
It's starting to clear up a little.

Still have a lot of snot, though. Still yellow. Blood is gone. At least for now.
