Asthmatic Bronchitis

I was talking with a friend of mine on the phone the other day and he was surprised that I was still sick. This would be Day 3 of knowing what I have and having medications to help me overcome the asthmatic bronchitis.

My friend is “older.” He was telling me how it takes him a longer time to recover from his illnesses. Then he said “I have to take it real slow sometimes because if I overdo it then I wind up getting sick again.”

I understand what he’s going through. When I first got sick, I was laid up for 3 days doing daily minimal work like one load of wash, putting clean dishes away, etc. I haven’t vacuumed the apartment in over 2 weeks.

My cough has gotten a lot better but I still feel weak. How much rest does a person need? Apparently more than when I was 30. If I don’t feel better soon though (as they say Prednisone is a miracle drug) I will have to go back to the doctor.

Perhaps I have pneumonia. That would be a real bummer.
