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.
