After 3 hours in the ER I have the diagnosis of bronchitis. I feel like I have been hit by a truck because all my ribs and my abs are sore from coughing. Got a breathing treatment of albuterol while I was there. Of course I am allergic to the good cough medicines with codeine in them so the best I can get are wimpy tessalon pearls. The doc at the ER also gave me Flo-nase "just in case". I told the ER doc about my experience with trying to get an appointment and she scoffed and said "typical". Apparently she isn't impressed either (which might be why there was a 3 hour wait at the ER).
I really wish I could say something positive about the whole experience, but I can't. It was a pain in my ass and just confirmed my own diagnosis. The only thing I got out of the whole thing was some crappy cough medicine that doesn't work very well and Flo-nase.
Anyhoo, I am gonna go lay down again. If I don't get around to reading or commenting on blogs today, know that I would have if I had the energy.
