At Least I Was Home

Well, I am sick. I posted a few months ago about getting a combination of bronchitis, sinus infection, ear infection and strep throat all at once and I'm pretty sure that brewing again. I havent been feeling all the great for a while, but it finally hit me pretty hard on Friday. I took the bus home and about 15 minutes away from campus it broke down making me extremely late, cold and unhappy.

I considered staying home until this passes, but I decided to go back to school and go home if it gets worse. My primary care doctor is up here and if I get sicker at home my only option is the emergency room (because my insurance does not pay for urgent care...stupid). So I'm going to ride it out. I do not plan on going to class tomorrow unless I am better, so I think I will probably hang around and watch movies. But I am going to do my homework so I do not fall behind.

I dount this is the flu because my temperature is only slighty elevated. If, though, it shoots up then I will reevaluate my plan. So for now its cold medincine and tea. Hope I feel better soon. Its so inconvenient being sick.

Hello - sorry to hear you are sick. I wanted to send you an email - but couldn't find it. Anyway, we have a new site for patients - which is designed to help people directly connect with others with similar medical conditions.

So if you built your profile with Lupus you could see other members that you could directly talk to, become friends with, etc. with Lupus. it's sort of like all in one...
