I've been fighting bronchitis and asthma for about 3 weeks now, thinking I could just get over it by keeping up my healthy diet, getting my exercise and using cough medicine and cough drops.
However, my husband finally convinced me to go to the doctor, who gave me a shot and prescribed a powerful oral medicine and a nebulizer to help me breathe better. I've been faithfully taking the medicine since Monday and today I just stayed in bed and slept all morning and didn't do any exercise, except my breathing exercise. I am so much better tonight. One side effect of either the illness or the medication was loss of appetite, but now I'll have to guard against overeating now that I've got my appetite back. I hope that by Monday, I'll be able to get back on my usual exercise routine of yoga and Jazzercise and not overindulge in the good dinner I'm fixing for my husband, daughter and son-in-law on Christmas Day. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my Sparkpeople friends!
