Sorry you are feeling badly John. I am sure you know all the things to try. I hope you get relief soon. When I get a cold, I usually keep going if possible. I seem to deal with it better if I can find something to do.

Well, got my MD appointment for 4pm today. Called in work this morning only to find out the other person I work with in the warehouses called in. So here I sit in my office, sneezing, coughing and hacking my head off. Good thing I work in an off site warehouse, my boss lady wont show up and wont catch me taking that 20 minute nap Im going to need later!!!

1 2 1/2 hour doctor visit, 1 prescription of high dollar medicine that my insurance wont cover, which I fully expected since they dont pay anything else, and I still dont feel any better! Well, maybe a tad better. No fever today!!

Well, I expected to wait, since I really didnt have an appointment, but not that long! Heck, they close at 5, and I got there right at 4, so at 6:30 or so I finally walk out, 120 buck poorer than I went in there with! Now have to wait on wifes insurance to reimburse, after my insurance refuses the charges. Funny thing is, they are both the same insurance company, she just has better coverage than I do, both are through our jobs. Mine with cover my DJD doctor and meds though, since its a "beyond the range of a family doctor" care.
