Well, I have caught a cold or flu. I went to see my gut doctor today and she heard my cough and called in my primary immediately. They both listened to my chest and wrote a script for antibiotics. I know some folks don't like to take the antibiotics but I have a history of pneumonia that comes on quickly. I have to stop these types of cold/flu things really fast or I am down for the count.
A few years ago I got a cough, it turned into a really bad cough that turned into bronchitis and then pneumonia. Then I got some reaction from some medication. I was sick for almost 4 months. Don't want to go down that path again. I always seem to get sick during October/November. Something about the change of season, I guess.
I can't wait to stop coughing! I sound like a barking seal. Every time I talk I start to cough. Makes it hard to work. I worked from home today and will tomorrow.
