Day 124/365: The Day I Finally Got Some Medical Treatment

Leave a comment

Remember at the end of March when I caught the flu and was sick during my entire four-day holiday weekend?  All of the symptoms went away on their own except for a dry cough that lingered throughout April.  I tried to treat it with cough drops and herbal tea and an asthma inhaler that was prescribed to me last year when I had the same problem.  None of it worked; the cough persisted.  Then, last week, my allergy symptoms started to kick in:  itchy, watery eyes and a runny nose and the urge to sneeze with the frustrating inability to do so.  Between the chronic dry cough and the allergies, I couldn’t hold off going to the doctor anymore.  So last week Friday I called my doctor’s office in Ventura and made an appointment for this morning because I had the day off.

I got a prescription for antibiotics, a daytime cough suppressant pill, and a nighttime cough syrup, as well as a referral to an allergist.  As soon as I got back to Morro Bay this afternoon, I took the first dose of antibiotics and cough suppressant, and now I feel sleepy enough to go to bed even though it’s only five minutes to 6 PM.

I didn’t have too long of a wait in the waiting room this morning, but I did manage to crochet a few more rows on the afghan.  It’s coming along nicely, I think.
