Meningitis: my bout nearly killed me
Dear Internet,

With all of the recent news on Meningitis killing college students locally, I thought it was time for me to relate my own brush with death. It was the summer of 1998 in August with temperatures soaring. I was running my TV show series out of my apartment. Pam Chandler was working for me. Gabe was running the Live show at CATV and my friend Jim Gibson also helped. But it was a beautiful lazy summer. I was swimming a lot in the pool where I lived when I got a cold or an ear ear infection which turned into the flu. Anyway I was sick for a few weeks and then felt better. It was so hot that I went swimming again and immediately got sick again and was in bed. I had called Pam and told her not to come in that I was really ill. It was going on three weeks with this awful summer cold.

My ear and head really started to hurt. So I went to the Peoples Clinic on a Thursday, but the young women at the desk wouldn??t let me see a Doctor or help me. I was confused and couldn??t really fill out the paper work or I gave the wrong answers. I told her I was very sick and needed help, but she asked me to leave. ( in hind site she almost killed me) The young women at the desk was far too dumb to be in a situation to assess the medical needs of critically sick people.

I then went down to the Boulder Medical Center where I waited for an hour passing out in the chair. The ER doctor there diagnosed me with an ear infection prescribed some antibiotics and pain meds. I went home but felt worse. Two days later Jim Gibson gave me a ride back to the Medical center where they gave me stronger pain meds, ear drops and told me I would just have to weather this infection out. They couldn??t have been more wronnor irresponsible.

The next 3 days were a blur. But I had high fever and terrible head aches. I couldn??t hold anything down. I wasn??t eating or drinking water. Though it was 90 degrees out side I was freezing most of the time. I had been sick for a month. Jim called me to see how I was doing. When we talked I wasn??t making any sense. So he told me to call an ambulance, but I didn??t understand what he was saying. When we hung up I passed out. I came too a few minutes later, but I couldn??t see. I was blind. I was sitting on the couch and the phone was in my lap, so I just kept pushing buttons. Finally someone answered. It was the ATT long distance operator. I told her I was blind and needed and ambulance. Fortunately ATT operators are trained for such situations. She was in Michigan, but called 911 in Boulder and stayed on the line with me?..I was panicking. I didn??t know where I was. My address showed up on her caller I??d and she could direct emergency personnel to my house. The first to show up was Boulder PD. The officer came in the sliding door. The next was Boulder fire followed by Pride Mark.

They could all see I was in bad shape. I hadn??t eaten in days. I had lost 30 lbs in4 weeks. I was blind and had gone into shock. My blood pressure was sky high and I was code 3 all the way to the ER. They gave me smelling salts and an IV so I started to come around, but was rushed into a treatment room at Boulder community. I went to the front of the line. I know that because a women ER doc told me so. She also told me they were going to take care of me. She asked me what was wrong. I said , I don??t know. I??m sick.

Then started the tests,; Blood tests, cat scan, spinal taps and a lot of questions. For a while I felt better. I had arrived at the ER at 11:00 am. By 2:00 I was ready to go home. But then I went unconscious. I remember all of these doctors and nurses working on me trying to keep my temperatures down ; trying to keep my blood pressure down and trying to keep my brain from swelling.

When I finally came around it was 2:00 am and a Doctor was talking to me. I??m doctor Erfling he said. I think you are out of the Woods now. You have Viral Meningitis and you are very sick he said. We are going to keep you in intensive care for a few days and then move you into a room. Do you understand what I??m saying he asked. I said yes.

Two weeks later when I was better he told me that I had nearly died and that had I waited two hours longer to call for help, I would have died at home. I was hospitalized for two weeks, was incredibly weak and delusional. After I left the hospital it took me a full year to get my strength back and 5 years to become athletic again. I don??t know what brain damage it did, but I suspect some.

Meningitis is difficult to diagnosis. I learned that the hard way. There are more than 35 strains. Left untreated they are all deadly.

I don't know what happened in the above mentioned situation, as I was not there. But I just wanted to post a review to say that I have seen Dr. Drury for several years and have always had excellent care. She has always been helpful and respectful and is a very good doctor.

My daughter WAS a patient at the clinic until last evening when my 24 wk pregnant daughter had an appt in regards to some concerns she had, so I, being a concerned future grandparent, I accompanied her. The most shocking news was that my daughter is no longer actually pregnant and hasn't been for quite some time and the care I thought she was regularly getting from here was not considered prenatal care but was for other reasons. As there was question after question there were no answers or what was to be an answer just led to more questions and added confusion. This was much more of a serious situation now I was a mother faced with a distraught daughter with mental health issues! Dr. Drury then decided to get the Ment. Health-Social Worker (Professional?) on call, Michael Dow. I had followed the Dr out the room in hopes with talking to her but instead she took about10 steps towards the Mental Health Prof. (?) Michael Dow & about 5 other staff and started announcing loudly detail by detail this horrendous ordeal, laughing with her fellow health professionals (?) disregarding any person walking by or worst yet, me, the mother of the troubled young lady they were verbally humiliating!!! I listened to their comments, jokes, and insults for about 8 minutes; I had to leave the area I just couldn't listen anymore. They were so caught up in the bashing, they were oblivious to me witnessing this inexcusable behavior arrogantly displayed by the attending M.D. and (the most horrifying thought) a Mental Health professional (?) who is coming to talk to my daughter about HER mental health!? This was the most shocking, insulting, and humiliating experience my daughter and I have ever been through. It is unfortunate that we as a society have lost the 2 core values when caring for the ill (mentally or physically), those would love and compassion. Love for who they are or the love of what you do (taking care of) and true compassion for others! Low Income Organizations such as People's Clinic should be an unbiased, non-judgmental facility based on your business profile and standards maybe the staff ought to be brought up to date and briefed on what the expectations are when dealing with those that are less fortunate, because the less fortunate are the ones that keep your business open!!!! Integrity, dignity, and respect don??t have an income!!!!!!!!

OK, you knew it wasn't going to be Doctor Beverly Hills 90210 when you signed up, so stop your whinning! People with insurance are becoming the alternative to the People's Clinic alternative in this economy, so let's give 'um their props folks. They bend over backwards using every creative payment strategy that exists to ensure you get the meds, treatments, diagnostics, or specialist referrals you need and deserve. I think they excel in affordable basic health screenings and immunizations - once you are in that is. Yes, it takes some humility and patience to get in the door, but staff members that I experienced there were just as qualified and competent, if not more so, than the high dollar Boulder Med Center staff I used to go to before I wrote reviews for a living. Power to the People!

PROS: they took me
CONS: could be a little cleaner
