I tried hard to fight it off in the beginning. When the cough came with nothing else in my nose or throat, I saw the signs. I've dealt with them all before and honestly they scare me a little. I dragged myself to the Instacare last Saturday after Scout's baptism just so this wouldn't happen, but the doctor insisted that he heard no signs of pneumonia in my lungs. I was welcome to check back with my regular doctor if the steroids didn't take care of the problem in a few days.

Now I get to take double doses of antibiotics and sleep sitting up, when I can sleep that is. I'm sorry for the whining. Really I am. I'm sorry to even be in this situation! Don't you think doctors should listen to what we have to say? After all, we know our own bodies and their tendencies.
My mom spent nearly a week in the hospital after she almost died from pneumonia when I was a child. I've had the vaccinations, but nothing seems to help when that hacky cough invades my system. Except for a doctor who will listen...
