    Ate at Wendys last night.

    This is just kinda to vent. Found out at work yesterday I may have been exposed to tuberculosis. Should be finding out results of those individuals chest xrays today. Until then I am a nervous-effing-wreck and I didn't give a hoot about what I ate last night, it was purely emotional eating for comfort.

    Even if you were exposed, you likely don't have the disease, meaning that the chest x-rays will most likely be clean. A course of prophylactic antibiotics and you'll be fine. I was exposed as a kid but never had the disease. It's no big deal.

    Just make sure that in addition to the X-rays they do the proper blood culture test. I used to repair the machine that they use for the test, and as a result I learned a good bit about TB. It has a long incubation period so the blood test can go for over 80 days, but most often is 40 days. Hope all is OK!!

    One should be doing the utmost to enhance the immune system if it might be mounting a challenge to a tough bug. Eating garbage should be the opposite course of action, no?

    I hope the results are good.

    I agree with iconoclast, I get emotional eating, but now try and build up your immune system.

    Once again, I hope you're okay.

    I get exposed to TB all the time. I never get it. No big deal, man. Pretty routine in the hospital.

    I'm another ex-hospital employee who tested positive on the yearly TB tests. I was under surveillance for a bit, but--more than a decade later, I'm here and, due to a different health situation I have to have more than one chest x-ray a year, and they've all turned out beautifully. It's a bummer to get the message, truly, but you're in a healthy lifestyle and doing what you can to stay healthy.
