After a week of wheezing, I went to the doctor yesterday. He told me that I have a bronchial infection with asthma-like symptoms. He gave me a 5-day course of antibiotics and prednisole. It's a steroid, with lots of terrible side effects. It's a huge dose for five days. I'm hoping that the antibiotics will do the trick, and I will wait and see if they work before taking this other stuff. I'm not thrilled with the idea of steroids, and I think it's a bit aggressive after an office visit that was maybe six minutes tops.

In spite of things, I've still done the first three days of the 30 Day Shred. I gained two pounds after all the holiday festivities. It's amazing how fast I gain if I'm not watching everything. I also think it's goofy that I can work around people that are contagious with all kinds of things without even getting a sniffle, and the minute I'm on vacation, I get sick. No fair.
