Sick of Being Sick!
mrswhitecastle posted:
I have been sick for over 3 weeks now!!! I so want to get back to normal.

I caught a cold, which turned into a lung infection. I waited too long to go the doctor, and ended up in an Urgent Care last weekend. Now I'm on heavy duty antibiotics which have side effects making me feel awful. I still have 3 more days on them. Blech!!!

We are afraid that I have developed some asthma. I have an appointment scheduled next week with my doc to discuss.

Sorry for the whine. How are all of you doing on this cold, Monday morning?

Whine away! (((hugs))) to you and I hope you find answers and treatment ASAP.

How are the kids when mommy is sick? Now that mine are a bit older (4 and 7) they seem to understand a tiny bit and show sympathy....but no breakfast in bed or naps allowed.

Both girls home today but I am working - my bestie dropped off her 11 year old who is "babysitting" and keeping them totally happy and occupied. Getting a gift card for each of them!!!

Let us know what you find out about asthma!

Hopefully, you will feel better soon. Keep us posted on the asthma dx.

That sucks! Breathing problems are not fun. I hope it resolves soon and you get back to your old self - especially with the holidays coming up!
