Has any of you ever gotten this before? I get it 2 or 3 times a year and it's not fun. I currently have been sick for over a week now with bronchitis and just 3 days ago it turned into laryngitis. I haven't been to work since tues and today my voice is a little back so i tried going into work I only made it for 4 hrs. I wasn't feeling so hot so I left early, boss kinda gave attitude but hey i didn't have to come back today I just wanted 2 because I couldn't stand being home another day. But I am burning up and feel like i'm going to vomit. My voice is not fully back yet so i wasn't doing my normal job i was doing work like filing things, correcting errors, verifying insurances stuff like that. Usually my bronchitis doesn't get this bad but it sucks majorly, you guys don't want it trust me. There's no way to stop from getting it, my doctor said once i have it i'll always get it. He puts me on prednisone, and azythromine medication and also cough syrup with codeine it works but not quick enough. I guess i just pushed myself too soon to go back to work oh well atleast i tried. Well mylotters I hope none of you have to worry about this sickness going around, i've had much worse then this so can't complain to much. Hope you guys are keeping healthy, i'm sure going to try to now. Have a good day!

Oh, I feel sorry for you. i get that also but once a year when the temperature is colder than normal like December[b][/b]. Last year I got 3 absences from office because of my bronchial asthma. You know that feeling of difficulties of breathing and coughing and coughing, you cannot sleep well even at night. So I did for three days is just walking outside the lawn every morning to feel the morning heat and lying on my bed for how many hours. I wanted to sleep but cannot because I cannot breath well because of coughing. Gosh, I hate to have that sickness again because it ruins my days.[i][/i][u][/u]

Yea i hear ya. All i did mostly while i had this was sleep but it helped because today is day 9 of having it and i feel tons better than i have. I missed 3 1/2 days of work because of it. Tonight i'm finally able to go out and enjoy myself with my boyfriend so it will be nice to spend time together after not seeing one another for a week. I hope i don't get this again until winter would be nice.

I've already been to the doctor and he gave me medicine for it it's just not getting any better. I hope it does though I got plans this weekend don't need to be sick. Atleast I made an effort and tried to work a full day today. Not my fault i'm sick. If it doesn't get better by monday then I will most definately give my doctor another call.
