I have been sick since dec 23rd. I was stuck in bed/couch for 6 days. After that I still couldn't do much. Went back to work last week although I was still coughing. Yesterday I felt worse again so my doctor put me on antibiotics and thinks I probably have walking pneumonia now. Supposed to be coaching basketball right now but instead I am laying down again. Really tired of being sick. I do regret not getting the flu shot now. I know they are saying it isn...
