Everyone here is sick.
No, I mean really sick.
Everyone, including me.
I've spent over $600 in the past 4 days on office visit co pays and our part of prescriptions.
I'm going back to the Dr. this morning because I am worse. I need a breathing treatment and something stronger for my chest and congestion.
Besides feeling like crap - I'm disappointed because I had so many things planned for this week that have either been forced to be cancelled or postponed. M came back with my parents on Christmas day to spend the rest of her school vacation here. The only thing that I've been able to do with her while she is here is play a game of Gin. I know she understands but it's killing me. We were supposed to have a family portrait done this morning. Forget that. Our faces are so puffed from the congestion and noses raw from blowing them....our eyes are bloodshot from coughing too much. Even J as tiny red spots on his cheeks from busted blood vessels in the skin from coughing. Poor kid.
Tomorrow is my wedding anniversary and I'm not even going to be able to carry through with what I've been planning for the past month.
My biggest hope this morning is that this doesn't linger for 4 or 5 months like it did for me 2 years ago. Once it gets in my chest, I have a horrible time getting rid of it.
That - and the hope that I can see the Dr without having to wait for hours on end in a waiting room of other sick people.
Not very positive and uplifting, I know.
Back to get horizontal in the bed.
