I found a doctor that is taking my respiratory infection very seriously. He's given me the two most powerful antibiotics he can prescribe, along with drugs to help me breathe, a nasal spray, and an inhaler.

I'm beginning to think this might be more than just allergies or a cold.

That was sarcasm. It shouldn't really take five medications for someone to be able to breathe normal. Worst part is, I'm still not breathing normally.

In all seriousness, I hope you get better soon, man! Especially since it looks like you guys are having some pretty nice weather out there.

The nausea from the drugs is a bonus. Really getting the weight loss plan going.
I walked into my Doc office once said "Hey doc I'm throwing up every day."
He looks at me without missing a beat and says,
"It's not working."

I'm glad to hear you have a Doc treating your problem seriously. Nothing is worse than getting blown off by a Doc.

My last doc was an MD, this one is an osteopath. He sat down and talked to me for about 15 minutes before planning a course of action. It was hard not to be shocked. He also gave me samples of some of the meds, which saved me a ton.

A Doc listened to you? I almost smacked a pain management specialist in the mouth once. I told him to stop. He kept poking. I told him to stop again, then told me to calm down it wasn't that bad. I said @@@k you got up and walked out of his office. I had been to that Doc office three times and this was the first time I had seen him. I demanded refunds for all my visits and got them. Turns out it had happened a lot with that guy. I also had another ER doc call me a liar when I told him I was hurting. I had already taken like five vicodin two weeks outside of the surgery. The swelling was still there, he kept asking why I was there. I told him so he could stop the pain. He walked out and ten minutes later the nurse walked in with a prescription to Ibuprofen. When I demanded to see the doc he had left for the day without finishing out my file. I complained to the AMA but never heard back. It turned out it was an infection and I could have lost the testi earlier and much worse than what I did. God I hate Docs.

I'm scaring people at work when I go into the bathroom to cough stuff up.
I throw up a lot and people always ask if I'm OK. I was yesterday I am today and I will be tomorrow. I can't go to the bathroom so I have to do it in my office. I think seeing the head chef come out of a stall after puking is a bad sign. I actually have acid reflux and the begginings of an ulcer so food high in acidity makes me pretty sick. I still have to eat though or I won't know it's right.

So at work thay just call you HACK not industry hack.:D
Oh snap! That was clever.

I bet it's not nearly as painful as all the hacking you're doing. My rib cage hurts when I get a lung infection from all the coughing.
