apple a day...

keeps the doctor away.

At least that's what they used to say.  I don't think it worked in this case.  After weeks of feeling fatigued and generally not well I finally made a trip to the doctor today.  It's really strange actually because I was just starting to feel better last Friday through to Monday and then it hit me all over again.  The tightness/heaviness in my chest like there was a brick on me; the fatigue and feverish feeling; and then the cough that seemed to never get worse but not that great either.  I haven't been to a doctor in years for a "sickness" which means I haven't taken antibiotics in years either.  That all ends today as I start my 10 day course of antibiotics.  I had better up my active bacterial cultures as all that is good is about to die along with this bacteria growing inside me.  The doctor ended up diagnosing Bronchitis & Sinusitis, a double whammy which would explain why I am feeling so horrible. 

On the upside, the antibiotics should kick in over the next 48 hours and hopefully in about a weeks time I will feel really great for the first time in over a month.
