I'm not even half-way through the wikipedia article on pneumonia, and I'm freaking out.

I hate that the only reason I know I have it is because the pharmacist at KP finally looked up my chart and saw the note that my x-ray was positive for it, that the x-ray was taken Monday, that the only time someone tried to inform me of it was when they called my mom on Thursday to say I had an antibiotic prescription waiting for me, but didn't leave a phone number or reason said prescription was issued, that nobody was able to determine who, exactly, issued the prescription (!), that I keep getting disconnected every time I talked to someone at new members services, that because I didn't have a primary physician new members services was the only department that was willing to help me, that before I knew I had pneumonia the only advice I could get from KP over the phone was to go ahead and take the meds, because the chance that they were meant for someone else and the patient #s got mixed up was "extremely unlikely", that because I went ahead and choose a doctor by my house while on the phone, no subsequent department I went to at the harbor city location could print out anything or help me with my questions because "only [my] doctor can release that information", that I can assume it's bacterial pneumonia because of the antibiotics, but other than that I don't have a freakin' clue what's going on, if it's contagious, etc., etc., that the guy who set me up with a primary wouldn't give me her contact info, because "her office will get in touch with you", and that said office has, in fact, not done so.

Also I hate how much my chest hurts. Ow.
