Someone Coughed on me and My mom is crying wolf!

On February 29, I was at my therapeutic horse riding lesson barn which my dad took me to; a sick girl coughed on me when I was getting the horse out of his stall to groom him. I was so angry at her because I just got over the flu; I couldn't even mount the horse at the block. I had get on at the mounting ramp. The girl should of been at home not spreading her germs to everyone at the barn. I am an special needs adult female who lives with my mom; my immune system is really weak.

On Tuesday, my karate instructor noticed that I was congested in my chest during my lesson in the afternoon which my dad took me to. My mom had oral surgery that morning. She didn't even notice that I wasn't feeling well. At 7 o'clock pm, She laid down on the kitchen floor say that she was nauseous and felt like she was going to throw up. I had to get her a bowl to throw up in. I wanted to call 911 to get her medical help, but she refused to let me do it.

Yesterday, she said that she had to stomach flu and a fever, and she couldn't even get up or get dressed. My dad had to take me to my other horse riding lesson in Pacific Palisades, CA.

Today, it is her blood pressure and a fever. This evening, she was laughing at something on TV, but she said her throat was sore. She wouldn't be laughing if she was sick. I actually feel awful because of that selfish girl at the barn coughed on me. I can't even rest because my mom is acting like she's dying, but she won't go get medical help. How do I get my mom to stop crying wolf? She thinks I'm the one crying wolf because I was sick for five weeks in January; I had bronchitis and than the flu.

If you're worried about Corona, ring(don't visit) a doctors or hospital & get some advice from the medical experts. And go read up thread

People often have colds - just wait till you've got primary school kids! It is just not realistic to expect people to... withdraw from life just because they're a bit sick. Often, the show must go on. C'est la vie! When your karate teacher noticed you were congested, did they get angry with you, that you were out 'spreading your germs'? I'm not following what this has to do with you not using a mounting block either.

I'm also not following your reasoning for saying your mum is 'crying wolf'. You obviously don't believe she is sick, that she's just putting it on. But seems this is just because she's not wanting to go to the doc about it and she laughed about something. Yes, plenty of people get sick without feeling the need for medical intervention(let alone calling emergency(that's what 911 is, isn't it?). Plenty of people also might have a bit of a chuckle about something despite being sick.

Everything's fine. It was just allergies to something.
