I'm Sick.

Postby Mr. Colby on Wed Dec 26, 2012 1:04 am

I feel so damn sick. I just can't stand it.

Post sympathy and/or jokes at my expense here. It'll cheer me up.

I have a really bad head cold and a fever. I was pretty much a waste of space at christmas dinner. I'm so stuffed up I can't even lay down

I got sick because some dude continually kept coming into the office claiming it was sinus pressure.

I let him know about it today.

I went to the doctor on Christmas Eve because I had a sore throat. Luckily that was my only symptom. Picked up a z-pack and feel fine today.

Do doctors hate when you just call and ask for an antibiotic? I always do that and I feel like the nurse/PA that answers the phone gets a bit snippy with me at times.

Are there doctors that actually give out antibiotics like that?

Mine does. I usually call and say "im not feeling well, can you just send an antibiotic or should I come in".. they ask the symptoms,, and then just send something to the pharmacy for me.

When people talk about how they went through a whole career and never took a sick day I want to kick them in the nads. How many people ended up taking sick days because they wouldn't? Unless they're some uber virus resistant super human.

I never know when to take a sick day. I have a head cold today. Should I take a sick day? If I do its not like I'd be home laying on the couch eating soup. I'd be up and running around or doing things around the house.

Overuse/unnecessary use of antibiotics increases the overall exposure of bacteria to antibiotics, allowing the germs to build up a resistance to antibiotics, which is bad news. Also, self-medicating with antibiotics (which is possible due to overprescribing them and leaving people with "leftovers"), which often involves taking less than full doses, results in suboptimal levels of antibiotics being present, which also allows bacteria the opportunity to build up resistances.

That's why I usually ask for a Z-PAC, when the doctor wants to prescribe one. 3 days and your done.

Yes, from what I understand z-pacs are good for combating antibiotic-resistance issues.

Ah I see. Well this has happened like 3 times in the past 2 years so its not like its a monthly occurrence. When I do get them I take the whole dose. I was always told its bad not to take the whole (usually) 7 day dosage.

Feel better. If you can, stay under the covers.
I had a chest cold with cough that lasted 4 weeks. I didn't have a fever or upset stomach.

If you have a bronchial cold.
