edited & re-written, because I wrote this when I was scared and it made no sense.

I had a resting heart-rate of 140+ bpm today, freezing cold/shaking hands, and felt faint and panicky but apparently that’s not serious enough to warrant a 20 minute appointment at my clinic on the basis that I’m 19 (what?) and didn’t have a temperature. thanks Dr.Allen you’re such a doll.  

btw I’ve been sick for weeks with some sort of chest/throat/ear infection, but my symptoms have been changing and I’ve started to feel worse than before in the last few days.
