Coughing Now!

 This is me!!  I'm coughing and having coughing fits so bad I know.  This is horrible.  I'm tired of all of this.  And I have jury duty this week...well, I have to see if I have jury duty.  This is why I hate getting sick.  I'm not one of those positive people who can shrug off things.  When things happen to me I go into a tailspin.  I don't know why I'm like that, I just am.  Dd and I were talking about this tonight.  We were talking about the boy who had his arm chewed off by an alligator, yet has a great positive respond.  He says he's glad it wasn't his friend.  I WISH I was like that. 

There is more stuff I'd like to post, but I'm still coughing and mentally can't get my thoughts together.  Will post when I feel better.

Oh my....sick again!

Life is getting messy again.  The last three weeks I've been coughing and the left side of my throat has hurt.  I have jury duty next week (that's another story) and I don't want to sit there and cough my head off, although, I'm having faith in God that my number won't show up and I won't even have to show up.  But, I went to the emergency clinic last week hoping they could give me something to clear up my cough, the dr said it was allergies and told me to take over the counter allergy meds.  Now, before I went to the clinic I had already made an appointment with my regular doctor but they couldn't get me in (so they say) for four days.  That's why I went to the emergency clinic.  Thank goodness I did not cancel my gp's appointment.  I went in yesterday; by this time my nose was running life a faucet; I was (am) miserable.  They did a throat culture and I came up positive for strep.  I don't get strep throat....but on my goodness.  Who would have thought?  Today I have a headache and chills, sweating...I don't have time for this. 

So I just wanted to check in..will write more later when I'm feeling up to it.
