Just wanted to say that I am still sick. Of course, if I had health insurance this month I would most likely be well or on the mend. Health Ins. will kick in again in April for a couple of months. I have a secondary of Medicare but since I have Ins. through my husbands union I can not really use it. Why? Because Medicare would expect my primary to pick up the bill and then would question why we didn't pay for Cobra. Well my husband only works about 6 months a year now and the rest of the time he is on unemployment. That pays our house payment, electric and car ins. I get disability, that pays for gas, phone (we do not have cable or satellite tv, just the old antenna on the roof) and food plus gas for the cars. Cobra cost $1500 a month, who has that kind of money when you have only been working part time for 4 years. We are also paying for our son to go to college. He hasn't been able to find a job for over a year.
Not really complaining and I may end of going to the doctor and paying for everything cash. It is not so much the doctors office visit because he would give me a break but I can not take very many kinds of antibiotics and of course of few I can take are not generics and cost a lot.
I hope to get up in the morning and at least walk a couple of miles and see how it goes. I know I will be coughing the whole time but if I don't get out and do something I think I shall scream!!
How long can one take Nyquil/Dayquil? I have been taking it for a over a week now.
Anyone have any ideas other than the obvious ones like going to the doctor, tea with honey and lemon, cough drops?
One min. seems like I am getting better and the next I can't catch my breath or stop coughing.
Oh well Off to bed now.
