So I've been sick on and off since Jan 13th. It was only really bad for the first week but it just kind of lingers with a cough and congestion... I have been told that the new cold/flu going around last a while up to six weeks. I thought I had finally beaten it last week.. I was feeling about 95% then suddenly this past Monday I woke up with sore throat and a cough,, then came congestion and once again I am sick. I know people here at work have been sick on and off but none of them are as bad as me. maybe I'm just getting multiple version of this sickness all I know is I want this to end.
And before you ask... No I have not gone to the doctors because first of all it's $40 for an office visit, secondly if it's a cold/flu (though a sever one) there really isn't much a doctor can do and thirdly I've heard from many people (nurses) that this strain is particularly bad. But with that said if I don't feel better by the weekend I'm going to make an appointment to see my doctor.
