I am a whiny, patient. I hate being sick. much better at the caring side of this equation! I have been a RN since 1984 and I have a good strong immune system. I hardly ever get sick.
This winter I got a cold/cough that wont end and after 8 days of rest/decongestants and fluids I finally went to the doctor. IHe listened and questioned and decided NO to medicine. He said it was just a cold. I beg to differ! He sent me home to wait a few days.
Guess what sicker now can not run (65 days left to train HELLO!!)
so I figure that it might be easier to get crack on the street than a antibiotic prescription from my doctor!
Hallelujah he finally called in a Zithromax Z-Pak and said all should be well by Sunday (yeah I have a 15 miler on my training log waiting for me!!)
So off I go to fill this prescription and I hope it is magic and I loose this nasty chocking hacking sputtering gasping cough!!
