I started feeling a chest pain in the middle of a Zoom meeting, so after consulting with Kaiser’s emergency line, I went to a walk-in Emergency Room for the first time in my life. (I had been taken to ER on an ambulance after a bike accident before, but waiting in line for ER was a first)
I was very cold and very bored waiting for an hour while they went through my covid rapid test results before they could let me inside the building so we had some fun on group chat. After medical staff told me that all the readings in my heart was coming back normal, I was discharged but they told me to wait to give me paperwork. And then there was yet another 15+ minute delay, so I just escaped the waiting area by calmly walking past the cordoned cones.
