*sigh* Just as I feared, the chest cold has settled into place and just WILL NOT go away! Those stupid antibiotics were making me feel funky again so I stopped taking them and called the doc’s office. Of course she’s out today *sigh* so not available to call anything in, PLUS I’ve only seen her once (my last doctor left private practice to go work at a university or something) so the medical assistant thought she’d want to see me before prescribing something anyway. So I made an appointment for 10:30 tomorrow morning. I will beg and plead for a cough syrup with codeine so I can get sleep and a Z-pack to kill this gunk in my chest. That’s what my old doctor always prescribed and it always works. It just sucks I have to resort to this EVERY single time I get a chest cold and I have to blow half my sick days on one illness. I just thank God the two years I REALLY needed this not to happen–the year I was pregnant and the year after, when I had no sick time thanks to maternity leave–it actually didn’t.
And also that I now have 3 weeks of vacation because I’m gonna need ’em!
Also, sorry for the boring whiney posts but no writing until I feel better.
