I have the worst immune system.

So, in case I haven't informed you all, I've had strep throat about 4 times this calendar year (the most recent being about 2 and 1/2 weeks ago). I went to the doctor yesterday, and was diagnosed with "almost pneumonia, but not quite," and am now on my second round of antibiotics this month.

Apparently, this cough I've had for about a week now is "almost pneumonia." It's not settled into the bottom of my lungs, so it can't be considered pneumonia or even walking pneumonia. But it blows. My entire lower back is sore from how much I've been coughing, my throat is sore from coughing, my head hurts from coughing, and I am pretty miserable. The cough medicine they gave me isn't great either.
The best stuff I ever got was a few months back, they gave me hydrocodone syrup for my cough and for sleep. It was wonderful. But it's all gone now.

I should probably try to sleep now.

  1. Ugh, that sounds awful. You poor thing. I've been on antibiotics more often this year than not, usually for my lungs but thankfully not pneumonia. I would never have been able to imagine how debilitating a cough could be until I developed COPD. I hope you feel better soon. Take care <3
