Scarves, Drugs and Pneumonia In The Summer

Last Friday I went to the doctor's to get some drugs for what I thought was "bronchitis".
4 days later I went back (yesterday/Monday), because I spent the weekend feeling like I was dying.
I started to cough up blood and the amount of sweat coming out of me...eww! I'm no doctor, but I'm pretty sure that is bad...right?! Plus I felt like my left lung was bruised.

After my visit with the doctor and her ordering an X-ray, I found out that I had pneumonia on Friday when I first went in. That even with 4 days of strong meds, I'm still really sick and now down to "only" bronchitis. Oh and the bruised lung... yep I have one.

I now have new medication to take for 10 days and some cough medication. I normally don't take cough meds, because I don't like feeling drowsy. So I take what my doctor says and holy cow was I drowsy. I couldn't walk straight, I was talking really loud (so Mr. Sonboul says) and I was asleep in seconds once it kicked in.

So today I'm home on a beautiful summer sunny day. It so stinks!
I wish that I never got bronchitis 8 years ago. NEVER get it people... it never goes away!
Sad face!

PS Oh and if you are wondering how I got this, because I normally only get it in the winter? I caught it because I was in the AC way too much. Crazy right?! Don't we all love AC??? Apparently it's my kryptonite

Pin It!
