There's sick and miserable... and then there's me.

Warning: The following post could be construed as whining. Read at your own risk.

So. I've been sick for two weeks. I went to my doctor and after looking at my ears, nose and throat, and doing a strep test (which was negative), he informed me that it was just some kind of virus, there was nothing he could do, and I'd just have to get over it.

In the process of trying to find a new doctor, I went to a walk-in clinic that a co-worker recommended. I had a bad sinus infection and an ear infection, and they put me on an antibiotic and said I'd feel better in a couple days.

In a couple days, I still didn't feel better, but I'd found a new doctor. I went to my new doctor and discovered I now had a sinus infection, TWO ear infections, and bronchitis. Oh, the joy! He put me on a stronger antibiotic and said hopefully I'd feel better in a couple days.

Right. I've heard that before.

It's been a couple days now, and surprise, surprise, still feeling about the same - plus I think I've had every "possible" side effect from the new, stronger antibiotic and then some. So, tomorrow I go back to the new doctor and they're doing blood tests to try to figure out what's going on.

Exciting, I know. Prayer from prayers would be greatly appreciated.

I always think if the Doc says "It's a virus, I can't do anything for you." you shouldn't hve to pay.

Sorry you're not feeling well. :(
