Went to my GP for the Cough, cold, ears, throat, head thing. Seems its going around she says. The first four words out of her mouth were... eww, maan, ewww, strep test! Don't have strep but my ears and throat are pretty bad she says. What is bothering the most is the ears and the pure exhaustion. It seems to take every bit of energy for me to lift my arms over my head. Doc says to expect it and that this might be my winter with the meds I am currently taking.... ohhh whhoooppeee. Well, I left work to go to this appt., went back to work only to leave again because I just couldn't do it... I was pretty useless there today. So scared everyone was going to get pissed at me, maybe they are, but I don't really care what good am I if I am moving at the pace of a slug except backwards? Plus I can't hear a darned thing. I actually feel like I need a few days off, but the last thing I heard from the boss was since you are leaving early today I expect you in tomorrow.... blah blah... Anywho. I started z-pak again today and Advair for the bronchitis/cough. They put refills on the z-pak this time so does this mean I don't have to go in for a visit each time I get sick now? No one really explained it.
Anyway, Good night
