to see if I have pneumonia. I’ve been sick as a dog since last Monday. I was out of work from Tuesday – Friday. Came back yesterday and felt like I did LAST Tuesday. Not good. Back to the doctor for the third time and kindly received a stronger antibiotic, steroids, more cough syrup and a script for a chest x-ray. The wedding is in 2 months and while I know I will be better by that point…being sick right now just sucks.
Anyone else battling bronchitis?

Oh, no! I’m so sorry to hear that and hope you get better soon.
The weekend BEFORE my wedding, I came down with a respiritory infection. I was coughing up stuff all the time, especially when I’d lay down to sleep at night, had a fever, and just felt all around terrible.
Being sick definitely does suck. At least you’ll be better in time for the wedding. Hopefully the x-ray will show the doctors what to do to get you better soon!

I don’t have bronchitis right now, but usually it’s like my evil twin, I get it a lot! Plus I have pretty asthma so it sucks I know just how you are feeling! You’ll get better by the wedding for sure especially if they put you on steroids those always help me atleast! Last time I had to get a chest x-ray though they found lumps on my lungs, so I had to have a ct scan after and it turns out it scar tissue masses due to how many times i’ve had bronchitis and other respritory problems. Hope you get better soon! Best wishes!

I had pneumonia a few years ago. Not fun! I had nebulizer treatments, the steriods, two rounds of antibiotics…it was horrible! It took a few weeks to recover. But at least your wedding is not next week! You’ll be better in the next few weeks and good as gold for your wedding. 🙂

@MsBlueBerryBee – OMG that is NO FUN! I get bronchitis ALL OF THE TIME TOO! Ever since I’ve had my tonsils out from always getting tonsilitis, now since there’s nothing there to catch the germs
> straight to my chest!
I can’t believe you actually have scarring from all of your upper respiratory issues. Yikes.

Yuck! I hope you feel better soon. I had bronchitis for about a month back in June, and it sucks. 🙁
