For the past 2 weeks I have been sick with a cough. My doctor has done a throat culture, chest Xrays which were normal. After two office visits this past week he says I have the tail end of a bronchial infection. Humm? I never had a bronchial infection so how could it be the tail end? Go figure.
Anyway as usual I pushed on even in sickness. I felt weak and tired and dizzy and lethargic but I kept going. House cleaning, grocery shopping, cut my husbands hair, took myself to the doctor twice and to the hospital for the throat culture and Xray. I went to my Etsy Meeting and to the Festival this last weekend, I kept my appointment at the hairdressers and had such a coughing fit she had a hard time finishing the cut. I ran to town to pick up the mail and just did my regular duties. I am finally feeling better today and think I am on the mend.
My husband has come down with whatever it was and he is acting like he is half dead. Huffing and puffing and sleeping most of the day and just cannot hardly move. Am I alone in this or are men just the biggest babies when it comes to being sick. It kind of makes me giggle because he kept telling me to TAKE CARE OF MY COUGH. It was getting on his nerves. This morning I said to him "So, when are you going to do something about that cough?" He gave me a funny look and called the doctor.
To make matters worse...he saw the same doctor I saw today and he was prescribed an antibiotic and told to rest and drink alot of water. That same doctor told me to take Robitussin! I suffered with this stupid cough for over two weeks!!! I am so angry. I guess it just goes to show that even doctors know that MEN are big babies when they get sick. Og course this doctor was a MAN. I will be looking for a new doctor!!
Men are funny creatures aren't they? How many of you have experienced this behavior?
