    I have no doubt that I have bronchitis. I've had it before. I get it at least once a year. I haven't been to the doctor yet for this bout. What's the worst that can happen if I don't go to the doctor and get on antibiotics?

    Sometimes it goes away on its own. But it really sucks until it does. I get it every fall and sometimes in the spring. Just to mix it up a little. And no, I don't smoke.

    My son had pneumonia last year. Definitely not fun. But, I have had the pneumonia shot! LOL Ain't I safe? If it were my son or my husband, I would hustle them off to the doctor. For me, I just don't feel like going. Not a valid excuse [​IMG]

I would just make a quick appointment with the doc, tell them you know it's bronchitis already and you would like some meds to clear it up. That shouldn't be too painful!

    Yeah, yeah, yeah ...

    You guys are so annoying with telling me to go to the doctor. But, the problems with breathing and so on are even more annoying. I have an appt. for tomorrow afternoon.
