When I got to the emergency room, I found out that I was having anaphylactic shock and I needed a shot of epinephrine to combat the reaction
Yesterday after lunch, I was supposed to help a co-worker with a ductless mini-split AC installation job. The two of us were going to tackle that job together and get it done in half the time it would normally take one person to complete the work. This would allow both of us to go home at a decent hour. I had lunch at a small taco stand on the corner of the street by the heating and AC repair shop. I felt fine when I left to meet my coworker at the ductless mini-split AC installation job. About 10 minutes later, I started to feel strange. My throat was starting to feel itchy and I had a light rash on my face. I called my boss and I told the guy that I believed I was having an allergic reaction to something from lunch. My boss got upset and accused me of dipping out early. I told the guy that I was going to go to the emergency room. He actually wanted me to work, because he didn’t think a light rash was a big deal. I have never given my boss any reason to think that I wasn’t telling the truth, but he still wanted proof that I went to the emergency room. When I got to the emergency room, I found out that I was having anaphylactic shock and I needed a shot of epinephrine to combat the reaction. When I called my boss from the emergency room, he quickly changed his tune and told me to take the rest of the day off and the next day too.
