Okay so on Sunday morning I woke up with a slightly sore throat, and I thought nothing of it. I thought okay so maybe I just need to start drinking my greens again! It had been about 2 weeks since I had drank them, so I started. Sunday we took our 3 kids, our nephew who lives with us (He’s 19), and 2 of the boys’ friends to Summit Waves, which is a small water park/pool and my throat was fine after that. I woke up Monday morning, and my nose was super stuffed up, so I assumed I was coming down with a sinus infection/cold, because it’s way past my time to get one of those.
In the past, I’ve gotten one fall/spring, every year, until I started taking my Berry Greens in OJ daily. I’ve gotten the occasional sniffle/snotty nose, but that’s to be expected. I’ve not had this horrible coughing/chest hurting/constant sneezing/sinus pressure that I’ve got now. Anyways, Monday, Michael had a baseball game, and I think the only thing I got done was blowing my nose. Tuesday morning I woke up and the congestion in my head was even worse than the day before, so before Michael’s baseball practice Tuesday night, we stopped by walgreens and I got some Tylenol Head and Cold in hopes that helped. Negative. Wednesday Morning I woke up and the pressure in my chest and head were awful. I felt like someone had my chest in between some vice grips and was constantly squeezing me. At one point it got so bad I couldn’t breathe. I ended up going to the doctor, and they said I have Bronchitis and possible Pneumonia. They said they couldn’t confirm it was pneumonia with out an X-ray, but if it was they would treat it the same as they would the bronchitis, so I opted out of the X-ray just to save a little bit of money.
I started this post on Thursday the 23rd, and am just now getting this done. I still have some cough and congestion in my chest, but last night was the first night in a week that I’ve not laid awake all night and coughed. Instead the coughing waited until I woke up this morning, but hey, at least I got sleep!
