One more thing:
If you need medical attention, please get it!!! I waited too long to deal with my infection for fear of the repercussions and it got me absolutely no-fucking-where!!
I called the hospital before I went and they told me that in my state they cannot call the cops or notify my work due to HIPPA laws. Only if they feel that I am putting someone in danger (ie.  If I had my children around it, then they would have to notify someone because they are mandatory reporters).
I know that I risked my life by waiting a week or two, maybe a bit more, to take care of something that got way out of control by the time I went to the e.r.
So, all that to say, Lesson Learned!!  And I hope you won’t ever make the same mistake….or let a friend.
