Covid for Cancer

Nothing is more annoying than being asked questions for Covid- when you have lung cancer. For example,

Hospital Hall Monitors: I have a few questions for you. Have you been out of the country in the past 14 days?

Me: No

HHM: Have you been tested for Covid?

Me: Yes

HHM: Did you test negative?

Me: Yes

HHM: Do you have any trouble breathing or shortness of breath?

(Here is where I get testy. Now, I could say yes, and then have an onslaught of follow up questions and not be allowed into the building- or just lie. After all, had I not lied in the first place, I’d have never been diagnosed.)

Me: No.

HHM: Do you have an appointment today?

Me: Yes.

HHM: Do you know where you’re going?

Me: The cancer center.

……

Now, If I could make up the new Covid questions, they’d be more like this:

Person: What brings you here today?

Me: I have lung cancer.

Person: Go right ahead.
