Never take the word virus for granted

At my age you'd think I'd have learnt most things 'health wise' by now...not the big stuff, but the little stuff. You'd think I would have questioned how I could still be so sick a full two months after getting the virus. Well - I did. I visited my doctor a month ago (again) who said it was a virus, nothing could be done...just rest, rest, rest! Well, I rested as much as possible (as you can imagine, with a house, a business, a husband and two kiddies) but over the weekend I got worse. I cracked it, I tell you. I stalked off to another doctor as mine isn't open on weekends and pleaded for her to tell me that, yes, all I had was a virus. She shook her head even without touching me - no, she said, you can see your sinuses let me have a look at you and see what else I can find.

She found infected sinuses and bronchitis. Yes - me needed antibiotics! I cheered when she said I needed antibiotics - for the first time ever, cheered I needed medication that I loathe! So I am on day two of the drugs and feeling okay-ish. So never take the word virus for granted - because it can turn into other things within 24 hours! Yes - I know, I know...I should have known, shouldn't I? Woops!
