Day 1 - Not feeling good!

Last monday i started not feeling well. By tuesday i had a 102 fever, sore throat, chill, and achy all over.
I do not like being sick all the time so usually i try to hide it. But nothing gets past mama t! So tuesday evening
i started feeling awful, and by wednesday morning i could barely function. I didn't think that i'd be able to drive, so
My friend Corrie drove me to the doctor, she is a blessing! The doctor took a strep test...came out negative. Then he said
that i had all the symptoms of the flu, but not the cough. So wednesday, thursday and much of friday i slept. Slept for hours and hours and hours. Then friday evening i woke up...and i started to cough. Here it was...the awful cough that the doc had been describing. It was a bark, a loud bark and was making my lungs feel awful. By saturday morning the cough was worse and i
felt much worse. So again, we called the doctor. My pediatrician was out of the office, but this other guy talked to me. He said that i had influenza and i should start to feel better within a couple of days.

Then he had me cough for him, he said that he was worried i was developing a secondary bacterial infection, so her ordered an antibiotic for me. He said to wait a day before i started, see if the cough cleared up.
I didnt sleep much last night, i was in and out of sleep, in and out of coughing. It was awful. I woke up at 9 in the morning totally exhausted, went back to bed till 3. Then my mom went to CVS and picked up the antibiotic. I ate, took it, and went back to bed till 6. For some reason me getting sick turns into a circus every single time. I hate it! It's ridiculous!

So tonight i am exhausted, coughing, and wishing that i feel better really super soon!
Ok thats all :)
