Ok, so some of you will remember my other recent post about my tight swollen throat. The dr. said I had bronchitis and put me on steroids and antibiotics. I am on the last day of my meds and I still have burning, tightness, coughing, shortness of breathe, etc. So I called the dr. but he was out of the office. I ended up talking to some receptionist who talked to the on call dr. She left me a voicemail that said: "we called in a prescription for you at Kessler's. Call me if you have any questions." Is this woman crazy? Of course I have fucking questions! First of all, what the hell is the prescription? What is it for? Who prescribed it? I called her and asked her those questions. It ended up being some kind of cough syrup to suppress the cough. I was like wtf? I have asthma and bronchitis with phelm and you want to suppress the cough instead of express it? I just said thank you and hung up. I also told her I started developing cold sweats at night and hot flashes during the day adn I was worried maybe I wsan't getting better b/c it wasn't listed as a possible side effect. She didn't even address it. I am so pissed! I am so sick of drs. I know it sounds bad, but I would rather sit at home near death than go to some dumb dr. that doesn't know their head from their ass anyway!! UUUHHH! Thanks for letting me vent.

I don't really even know what it is I need to post right now. I've suffered with this condition since I was 14 years old chronically with no relief. I'm in constant pain I can barely walk and I'm so exhausted I can barely get out of bed much less do anything else. I'm just so sick and tired of living like this and I have done SO much to try to feel better, I've tried everything I can think of...
