So, yeah, Saturday I got sick. Nbd, it's just a runny nose and a sore throat, that will go away in a day or two, right? Well, now it's Wednesday, and the illness has moved down to my chest. My lungs feel dry and I feel a dull constant pain in my chest, and at the same time I have possibly developed a small fever. Yay. :thumbsdn: I had to call in sick to work yesterday, and I got sent home early Monday and today. While my job is not the most exciting job in the world I still feel bad about this. To top it all off I've been missing classes because I didn't want to start having fits of coughing or sneezing in the middle of a class and disrupt the rest of the class's learning. I've been sleeping every chance I get hoping to kick this but the most kicking I did was my nose stopped being stuffed up, and I can now breathe through my nose again. At least I'm making progress. :rolleyes:

Doesn't sound too bad, but, worst case scenario, you might have the makings of bronchitis. If you start coughing stuff up constantly, head to the hospital.

Please, God, no. I can't go to the hospital right now. I'm not coughing anything up, except phlegm every now and then, but I don't think it's going to get any worse. I know what I have isn't that bad, it just feels shitty.

I suppose. Still, I'm glad I feel like I'm reaching the end of whatever this is. (Although, last time I said that was last night and I woke up with a cough and a fever. Go figure. :rolleyes: )

Maybe I'm wrong, but I doubt he thought it that post through.

Hope you get better soon, Tiger.

Feel better soon tiger. I know how it feels to have that nasty crud like that. I had it most of last fall and winter. I'll send you some chikey noodle soup and bring you a nice story book. *hugs*

Thanks, everyone for your well-wishes. I am feeling better now. I guess sleeping all day helped a little. And, Hater808, it's not PMS, so Midol would not help.

Stop whining...

If you're that sick, you should try taking medicine, or vitamins..

Any intelligent human would do that...

Yay, I get to talk to you again. Guess what! I did take medicine, every four hours like I was supposed to. Yet, it still got worse before it gets better, as it usually does. Way to go, genius. :rolleyes: Do you think before you post or can your brain not even function that well?

Edit: Sorry, mods/admins if this counts as a flame outside of B&T. It'll be the only one.
