Bronchitis....Oy!

So, my Assistant Manager finally kicked me out of the shop yesterday telling me to go to Urgent Care and get some meds. After waiting for an hour (thank goodness for my Nook)


I was taken in and am now the proud possessor of an inhalor to be used every four hours during the day, an antibiotic 2x/day and a codeine cough syrup to let me sleep overnight. As for sleeping...I gave up on my bed at midnight, took my things into our study and slept in the recliner for the night. It wasn't the perfect solution, but at least I did get a few hours of sleep. I'm wiped out, though.



I should buy stock in Kleenex, as many as I'm running through on an average day. I'd be a rich woman - LOL. I feel like Typhoid Mary. Even though I'm not contageous any more, I still end up with space around me in crowded rooms. Come to think of it - that could be an advantage - LOL. I hope all of you have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend ahead of you.

Thank you, I think I'm on a healing trend now. I don't make a good patient, and it's creating total havoc with my writing schedule and my betas :-)

Bronchitis is miserable. Now onder you feel wiped out with lack of sleep and general malaise. Take care of yourself. {{Hugs!!}}
You've been so marvelous through all of this, my other person kicking me to the doctor - LOL. Now if I can just catch up on some sleep :-)

at least my DH finally believes that I'm actually sick *sigh*
What is it about the guys? I suppose, because we don't show that we're sick that often, they forget it? Who knows?

Thanks, Samtyr. Just looking at your LOL cats over the past few days always made me feel better :-) Laughter is the best medicine, after all.

I am so glad that you are finally getting it treated! I always find, even just with a bad cold, that it is much easier to sleep in a sitting position.

One of the first things I learnt as a student nurse on a chronic chest ward was to sit the people up in their beds, put a couple of pillows onto their bed-table, and get them to sleep by leaning forward onto their crossed arms on the table in front of them.
Oh, that sounds so comfortable. That must be a measure of my exhaustion :-) I slept in the recliner for my last 3-1/2 hours last night. Although I woke myself by coughing several times, I at least got more sleep than I've been getting lately. I think my meds are starting to work too.

Thanks, Russa. I'm slowly getting better, but I still have quite a bit of healing still to do. Think I'll call it an early night tonight :-)

Oh no! I hope you start feeling better soon. My mom has been coughing a lot and isn't feeling well. I'm going to make sure she sees a doctor.
Thanks, Shirebound. I'm actually starting to feel better today, although it will actually take a few days for the meds to really get some serious work done. But I do feel better already :-)

Oh thanks, Min. I actually am a little better today, and I'm going to sleep early because I'm completely exhausted. I'm fairly sure I'm on my way to recovery, but I still have a ways to go.

Thanks, Indy. I got some sleep last night (still sitting up for that though). I'm feeling appreciably better than 48 hours ago. I'm for sure on the mend, although it might be a bit at a time. But I'm clawing my way back to normalcy :-) Thanks for the warm thoughts.

Thank you Linda. Everyone's good wishes have definitely helped to make me feel better, and the meds are starting to kick in and work (yippee!).
