Leigh was right

I can’t believe that I am actually writing this, but, yes, Leigh was right.

I have had a pretty bad cold for the past 2 weeks and it had settled into my chest and a pretty bad cough.  She kept on telling me to go see the doctor, which I hate doing.  After about a week of the cough, it had gotten to the point where I was not able to sleep and I was keeping Leigh up also.  As long as I am vertical, the cough is not that bad. But once I lay down to go to sleep, I start coughing to the point where I start to loose my breath.

When I got home from work, I decided that enough was enough and I went to the local Urgent Care Center.  After having X-rays taken, they determined that I may have a slight case of pneumonia.

So, I have been given some antibiotics and a prescription cough syrup.  I took the cough syrup last night and I was able to sleep for about 2-3 hours before the cough came back.  I have yet to take the antibiotic because the warnings state that it can affect my blood-sugar levels and being diabetic, I want to check with my Primary Care Physician first.

As much as it pains me to say this… Leigh-Ann was right and I should have gone to see the Doctor much earlier than I did.
