Y'go to a podiatrist, he'll diagnose ingrown toenails. Go to the proctologist and it's hemorrhoids.
Doc in the box, she takes a look and a listen and examines your phlegm and pronounces, "Acute Bronchitis. Looks bacterial."
I've got the Z-pack. Take the azithromyacin for 48 hours and if no improvement, come back. I'll be doing that.
...Hey, did I mention I had a couple of projects hanging fire at work, one very expensive and the other pretty visible? And a week vacation already scheduled, starting Monday.
Current plan, if I feel any better tomorrow, is sneak in and get the visible one finished and disavow all knowledge if asked. The expensive one, I dunno; schedule determined by others.
Really (rillyrilly) hoping I do feel better tomorrow, it's the Indy Hamfest. But at this point, I'm not expecting it.
Back to bed, I have more hacking and coughing to do, and aching and grabbing fitful sleep. Nothing serious could be this annoying!
