16 days. That’s how long this upper respiratory infection has been going on. A steroid zpack suppress the symptoms the first week, but they came back full force when I finished the pack.
Yesterday, I finished ten days of an antibiotic. I’m convinced taking them produces its own side effects, so I’m glad to be finished. I’m better, but I still have congestion, a nagging cough, and body aches. I’m starting to wonder if this has more to do with being old than with being sick. Most likely it’s a combination of the two.
It snowed on Friday and the office was closed. I’m also off from Martin Luther King Jr Day Monday. That gives me a four-day weekend to continue to recover. I’m thinking it would do me some good to bundle up and go for a walk, rather then lie around the house like I did all day yesterday.
