sick of being sick

I haven’t been to the doctor in years.

I went to Urgent Care one time shortly after we moved to Oregon.

I had a cough for more than 3 weeks.

I had bronchitis.

I’ve had colds, but they would get better.

This one feels like it is getting worse.

I had hoped I would come home from Colorado and feel better.

I thought it might be allergies.

It’s not.

My ears hurt, I’m coughing more.

I am really weak and tired.

I made an appointment to go to Urgent Care.

I hate to go because they will probably tell me it is just a cold and that I need to drink fluids and rest.

Easier said than done when you are a stay-at-home mom.

The rest part, that is.

I’ll let you know what the diagnosis is…stay tuned.

{By the way, I was supposed to run in the Race for the Roses today and I am totally bummed that I missed it!}

home is…being sick enough to go to the doctor.

    It always sucks to take the time and pay the copay to go to the dr and have them tell you there is nothing they can do for you. I think there should be tests for stuff like bronchitis and strep so you know before you go that you have it so you don’t waste your time or money!! I hope you feel better soon.

    Totally agree with Tracy on this one! I won’t bore cyber space with my last month and, so far, avoidance of doctor visit. . .
