    I said i have bronchitis, which is a bacterial infection.

    Anyway, for a virus like a cold of the flu, i just take some advil, get an ice pack, and watch some TV.

    The problem with antibiotics is that they used to give them out like candy. Now they're paying for it. I don't know which of you have been to indonesia, but CIPRO (best and last resource for antibiotics) IS OVER THE COUNTER AT ANY PHARMACY! I'd hate to see what happens when there is a plague of bronchitis or something...

    I know, the words: 'all others' tipped me off. And no offense taken. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Well, I'm not sick.. yet (unless you count having diarhea and constipation AT THE SAME TIME for months straight). But my best friend Ariel was sick last week, and so was my friend Angelica.. and if anyone's watching The Daily Show lately, Jon sounds like he has a fish in his throat.

    You cough when you take a deep breath when you have bronchitis? Apparently I've had bronchitis twice and survived without treatment.

    Yeah, fever, headeache, coughing A LOT, sometimes hard to breathe, can't lie face up from all the glop sinking in to your throat and making you cough more, and the coughing with breathing in. It eases up over the course of the illness though.

    When I've had bronchitis in the past nothing has come of it (besides the occasional secondary illness.) When I was in elementary school, however, I remember a friend of mine got bronchitis which developed into pneumonia (which is far more serious) so take care not to let it go too far. That kid was hospitalized for several months as a result.
    Take care of yourselves.

    I'm taking antibiotics. I'm taking pretty good care of myself too. Anyway, she said it could be a MINOR form of pnumonia. So she found a loophole and gave me an antibiotics used to treat both.

    I remember when my (evil) stepmother had pnumonia. I hope she would die [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] . Well, not really. Anyway she didn't die, but was in the the hospital for about a month. Stubborn idiot should have listened to my dad and got a flu shot (the flu became pnumonia).
