Is anyone else sick?

My son gave us all what he has. Sore throat, coughing sneezing, cold symptoms. It's no fun at all.

When I read your subject line, I thought... sick of what? Heat, yes, dry, yes, heat and dry together YES!

Otherwise, I guess, I am lucky. So sorry you are sick. I just got back from work. It is a really short distance... to get there, and back, but in this heat, it is wearing me out.

Yes, of course, I ride my bike.

Hope you get to feeling better quick.

All last week my DH stayed home from work, sick. Started out with gurgling in his lungs, progressed to a sinus infection/cold then body aches fever. He's almost over it now.

Hope you feel better.

Sick here! About 2 weeks ago I woke up with a congested cough, fever, headache and body aches. Doc said I had bronchitis and prescribed antibiotics because of my history with pnuemonia. Still feel icky. Whatever bug this was is going around and hitting people hard.

Yes. Last two weeks or so, sinus drainage, headache on and off, SLEEPY all day, no energy, sensitive stomach, lower back pain to boot. I thought the back pain was from sitting and doing nothing so much, so tried to get out today and lay down a little bit of mulch, trimmed the English Ivy. Actually back felt better, but later I came in the house, sat down in the chair, and pretty soon woke myself up with a loud snore! I had dozed off for appx.30 min.

I hope these things don't last long. Remember the chest cold/bronchitis I had in May? I just got rid of the last of the cough several days ago.

I hope all of you who are under the weather get to feeling much better and very soon. I think these types of illnesses are much worse on a person when it's hot out than when it's cold out.

I had whooping cough last month. Coughed for a month spasmodically before I figured I should go to the doctor. (Actually DH made me go) I graciously had a coughing fit while he was walking down the hall and kept at it while he stood in the door - couldn't stop, couldn't breath and started choking. Whooping cough is on the rise in our area so all of you sick with a cough and no cold symptoms, do be careful. Antibiotics took care of it.

We have whooping cough here in central FL. I got the DTaP vaccine (for whooping cough/pertussis, etc.) because my grandson is going to be born any day now. And it's better to be safe than sorry.

Got it, too -- started as a sore throat, then the nose, cough. Began about 3 weeks ago. Still have the cough. Doctor gave me the prescription-strength cough medicine, except it's 12-hour -- and because it can make you drowsy, I can't take it during the day. So during the day, I have 4-hour cough medicine (non-prescrip). Some people at work have it, too (I sit 3 desks away from one of them), and one (at least) of my neighbors has it.

It's the cough and the difficulty getting the last phlegm out that creates terrible coughing jags.

If you have it, don't wait too long until you go to the doctor.

I'm still coughing, I'm working but I have very little energy. At least I'm sleeping!

I agree Pammyfay it's the cough jags that are so awful. It's a thick mucus and often times I find myself choking. Scary at times!

The whole right side of my face is swollen and killing me, not sure if it is a tooth or ear or sinus or all of them. I have been having some allergies and sinus stuff going on. It makes me a grump!

I have more of an appetite today, but my eyes are itchy and still suffering from mild headaches; but my back feels better. Rested in the chair again today.

Sorry about your son, Joann. I've been sneezing off and on all week and had a scratchy throat. I hope I don't get a full blown cold.

Alisande, I'm glad to read it's not just me. I had Bronchitis back in early May and it was only last week that the last bit of congestion left. I never realized it makes you weak as a kitten the first few weeks of being sick. I think Bronchitis is worse than the flu, providing there are no secondary infections!
