No appealing title its just random

When I went to do comprehensive medicals for the bank job I spoke about earlier (for those who asked I haven’t declined the offer, so the jury is still out) the results said I was AA (genotype) I’ve done this test previously and the results said AA then the lab technician called me the next day to say there was a mix up and that I was AS, I just accepted it anyways. So after the new result I decided to do the test in 2 different hospitals again and the result came out as AA.

All these years I’ve been thinking I was AS, iv taken important decisions that affect my life (who to date, etc based on that. Am a little irritated but thankful sha.

Last week Boo’s kid sister (16 yrs) was diagnosed with Tuberculosis. They decided to seek a second and third specialist opinion and the results of the last two said it wasn’t tuberculosis that what the first Dr saw in the x-ray result was the lungs of an asthmatic patient (the girl is asthmatic). Another medical mistake. Am just thankful cuz the family was already panicking.

For a while, iv been having muscle pull on my left ankle while sleeping, it has happened about 4 times now in the space of 2 months, the last was two days ago and that still hurts, I’ve had to discard my high heels, maybe I should see a doctor about it abi what do u guys think?

Its about 5 weeks to my exams, between my stressful job and reading when I get home till the wee hours of the night, waking up early to beat the traffic, the hellish, unavoidable 3rd mainland bridge, trying to make a decision as regards the future of my career, being a comforter, listener, attention giver and lover to my Boo (who is undergoing a trying time right now), being the dutiful only daughter to my parents and keeping lustful men at arm lengths my life is pretty busy now and hectic. I wouldn’t wish my life as its looking this week on anyone

Have a good week people.

do u know what u've done with dis post? u've made me realise dat some times being distrustful has its advantages. i mean, i usu take dr's words 4 it? if they said it's so, den it is. & i go straight into treatment, where necessary. wow. am happy Boo's sister is fine. Asthma no b small disease oh, d great thing abt it is dat i can b well managed 2 d point dat it's almost non-existent.

pele, with all dat ur busyness. na so life be.

Someone in my church some years back was 'diagnosed' with heart condition. Hear prayers!!!

He went all the way to Israel for 'correct' medical care only to hear the doctors say his heart was so perfect, they were envious! Its 9ja oh! God help us.

you should always try and get a second opinion just in case coz doctors are human too and prone to errors

Medical "mix up" or whatever name we choose to call such unprofessional mistakes have caused many problem in the past. Thank God you now know your correct status!

All the best in your exams!

You know what they say, light comes after the darkness just live everyday as it comes, everything will be in place in due time.
You should have your foot X-rayed, good thing quitting the heels, it's most likely strain of some sort.

You're a super girl, juggling all that. Biko, see a doctor about that leg and stay away from high heels for a while...
