i mean the line between knowing something is wrong, and calling for help, and on the other hand, letting the patient manage their own illness on their own?
My partner, who some of you know as "Puffthemagicdragon" seemed very well a few days ago, but then was complaining of chest pain, I wanted to call for help and have it checked out, he wanted me to stop "fussing".
so i left it and against my better judgement, let him drive 200 miles to see his family yesterday.in the middle of the night i picked up a message he was in hospital.
i spoke to him this morning and he's ok, he had oxygen in the hospital, and more antibiotics, and it was an infection.
probably when he gets online he will explain it himself.
but this is one of the things i am finding difficult, in all honesty i feel guilty, i should have done something yesterday, i shouldn't have let him drive, etc.even though he insisted he was ok, i knew there was something wrong.it could have turned out much worse than it did.
does anyone have any opinions on this issue?
