I am just getting over a nasty, nasty cold. And though I am not prone to running to the doctor for every little sniffle, I was becoming worried about having this for around five miserable days and not getting better, and being on the Azathioprine.
It seems I am the only one who worries about the Azathioprine. Maybe I don't understand how it works, but it appears to be no big shakes to my doc. Maybe it doesn't make me more prone to get sick, nor does it make me less able to get better. I don't know. I imagined it would, but it doesn't really appear to act that way (in that I really don't get sick more often), nor do my doctor's reactions to my suggesting concern about it enforce that *I* need to be concerned. He almost literally yawns when I suggest it! ~smirk~
This cold was a doozie. I'm still coughing today and have a stuffy nose, a full week since I felt that first scratchy throat. At least four other members of my family that were at my house for Christmas (total of 16) have had it already, and some are just starting down the wretched path today. Very contagious and NOT fun!
