bronchitis fun!

Did that title make the whole bronchitis thing any more fun?  No?  I didn’t think so.

I have been seriously miserable for almost a week.  You in blog-land who have not had the dubious pleasure of hearing my “voice” cannot truly appreciate the misery.  I sound bad and feel worse.  This ratsnfratsn Death Cold – which has gone into my lungs – comes complete with fever and pastel boxes of Puffs (with Lotion!), causes me to sleep fitfully due to the coughing, and is seriously draining my pocketbook due to co-pays and missed days of work (unpaid since I used up all my sick days for the year in the first weeks of 2011).

I am not, of course, likening my sore throat and bronchitis to true hardships.  I know how lucky I am better than that!  I just wanted to have a little company for my misery.  (It loves company.)  And I figured I’d drop you a few lines because I am dreading lying back down.  Even with the codeine cough syrup, I still hack like crazy when I am horizontal… and it hurts.

Daily Check-In:

  • I’m grateful! for health care.  For the very nice guy who treated me at Kaiser today.  For my friends and family.
  • I’m lighter! by a whole box of kleenex.   I went to the doctor, slept, and watched Glee with Quinland.

I would love to hear your thoughts!
