The last few days have been a blur. I somehow got a nasty strain of bronchitis that has caused me to miss three days of work. I've spent a lot of time in bed, trying to rest. My energy is zapped and my appetite is lacking.
I know I said I wanted to lose weight this year, but this is ridiculous!
Anyway, all kidding aside, I think the medicine from the doctor is finally working. But I had my doubts in the beginning, especially when I had chills and a fever. I began to wonder if it really was bronchitis, or maybe worse-- the flu.
When I was waiting for the doctor, the nurse was asking me all sorts of questions while she took my blood pressure.
"Have you ever had a flu shot?"
"No..." I paused. It seemed like she tried to hide a smirk. "I've never had one."
I instantly began to wonder if that was the right approach to have. Maybe all along I should have been getting flu shots. With my blood pressure fine, she soon left. The doctor entered shortly thereafter. She determined that I did not have the terrible virus that seems to be spreading, where people just cough and retch for two weeks straight. There isn't anything they can do to help them, since the virus just has to work its way out.
Thank God I don't have that.
So I'm still recuperating, but I hope to be back and at it real soon. Stay healthy everyone!
