I’ve had this nagging cough for nearly 2 weeks now. I gave my doctor a visit last week and he prescribed me cough syrup. The one that makes you drowsy because it has codeine. Strong stuff. I’ve been light headed and sluggish since. I took it for 5 days and have not gotten any better. So I saw a different doctor. He said I had an infection in my chest and prescribed the “Z-pack”. It’s a 5-day antibiotic regimen. I take 2 pills the first day and one pill a day thereafter. I took my second day’s supply yesterday and am feeling a little better.
But still coughing quite a bit. Still blowing my nose every hour. And still washing my hands every 30 minutes. Oh, and still going to work.
Also, I’ve been running a slight fever. Perhaps that is why I have been feeling so gross. Ugh. I just want to sleep….
