Couldn't breathe. Couldn't lie flat. Going on Minor annoyance since Wednesday but it really exploded last night. So in I went.

Verdict: I got Bronchitis.

Ain't nobody got time for that.

  3. I'm now in the process of shaking something like that. Started out last week while lecturing my class; uncontrollable sneezing. Quickly became postnasal sore spot and started secreting thick mucus, which until this morning (and maybe still is) went dripping into the lungs, coughing up lots of mucus, at one point had trouble breathing due to epiglottal stricture. Began to improve, but all of a sudden the sore throat acted up again, and postnasal drip restarted, heavy coughing.

    Feeling better now, but, given its multiple reprises, I can't help but wonder whether it is some engineered virus that escaped from some lab somewhere.

    [Hey, Murph, don't you pass not too far from Fort Detrick on your way to and from DC? Cannot totally dismiss possibility of you picking up some engineered virus from there!].

  4. Sorry to hear about that - I had it last month, and it sucked great big rocks.

    You take care of yourself, and don't try to do too much too soon. It will, repeat, WILL bring you down all over again. Trust me - I know this.

  11. Sorry to hear that. Our family has been battling bronchitis since March 14, when my husband came home from work sick, and then gave it to me and the kids. I have disinfected everything in the house, and it still rages on. Be sure to replace your toothbrush. Hope you feel better soon!

  15. Could it be from your, uh, two companions that reside at the same residence?

    Some people are allergic to cats or dogs...

    1. Much as I'd like to be able to pin this on them, not likely.
