I'm on my third week of being sick, this time with a cough that rips my lungs in two, and a mouth and throat filled with blisters and stuff. I really have no idea what's going on, and I have that nagging feeling that since it's been going on for three weeks, just maybe I should confront my fear of MD's and just call a doctor. Good thing my wife still has her cough medicine even though her pneumonia is over, so I've been taking a bit of that (mmm, ephedrine) along with some NSAIDs to make it easier on me (mostly aspirin though, since it works best on me and isn't as dangerous on the liver as some of those others).
OMG! Go see a doctor! If it's a bacterial pneumonia, it'll just be a simple x-ray and a prescription for a course of anti-biotics. In and out in no time. I got hit really hard (three weeks as well) coming back from CES. See the doctor, do what must be done, and be well my friend!
It's unlocked now. I've made a happy happy post to welcome everyone back. Go pick out the character you want before they're all claimed!
