So today is day three of my anti-biotic course. Fortunately, so far, I'm not experiencing any of the side effects my doctor warned me about. I'm pretty sure that they have started to work because my chest feels a little looser sometimes. I have actually been able to get some sleep for the past two nights as well. This is a huge improvement after several nights of almost no sleep.
I had completely forgotten about how this thing just kicks the shit out of you. Just walking from the bedroom out to the living room can wind me, as can moving around in the kitchen, making tea or whatever. I also have these coughing fits that just take my air away. I can't imagine how difficult it is for someone who has to live with this kind of situation all of the time.
Basically, I'm resting all day, taking it extremely easy although trying not to sleep too much during the day as it just screws up my nights. I still feel like complete and total crap but I know that eventually, I'll get better. The waiting is hard, as is all the coughing. Sorry to be so whiney but when you're stuck in the house like this, it isn't exactly fun or exciting. Hope you're all having a good weekend so far though. Stay healthy!
