Sickness interfering with exercise
Monday, November 03, 2008
I don't know how many of you out there has caught the bug that's going around but I have and it's really frustrating me. I've been sick now for 2 weeks and I haven't felt up to exercising. It's very hard to feel like exercising when your head pounds, your nose runs, and you cough your head off.
I dread sleep time because as soon as I lay down I start coughing and it lasts for about 2 hours so it's also affecting my sleep. I've taken everything I can think of at night to stop the coughing but nothing seems to work.
I finally broke down and filled the prescriptions that the doctor gave me last Monday. I currently don't have insurance so I knew the prescriptions would be expensive and they were. It cost me $150 and I still coughed my head off last night. I'm hoping that the situation is better tonight simply because of all the money I spent yesterday.
It's not fair to those that don't have insurance to have to pay full price for prescriptions simply because over-the-counter medications aren't strong enough to cure a cold. Does anyone feel this way?
