I’ve been sick for about a month straight now and I’m looking for some advice.
It started with strep throat and a chest infection. I went on antibiotics and felt around 65% better. Sore throat came back so I went to the dr and he said I had tonsillitis and gave me another round of antibiotics.
That cleared up the worst symptoms but I still have a sore throat, a cough that comes and goes and I still feel exhausted and just crappy. I’m not sleeping because of the pain in my throat. I went back to the dr (my family doctor) and he said I just need to rest more and control my stress levels. My job is extremely high stress and I work approx 75-80 hrs/week. I know 100% that’s where my stress is coming from, but until I get a new job I can’t really do anything about it.
I’ve never taken this long to get over anything (and I’m not new to throat infections) and it’s starting to make me crazy! Anyone have any tips for how to start getting better?

Is there any way you can take time to rest? When I feel bad and I can’t take time off to rest, the sickness just lingers on.
