Taking a Sick Day

I knew it was going to happen. Just a matter of when.

I woke up yesterday morning, and took my four pre-breakfast pills, and it felt like one of them had slipped down the wrong hole so to speak. Had a bit of a coughing spasm that really hurt, but didn't feel all that bad.

Once at work, I had some coughing spasms, and didn't think more of it. Headed home from work, and stopped at the grocery and pharmacy for a few things, and then headed home. All is relatively fine, but I had a bit of tightness in the chest.

Around 3:30 pm, things got worse. I started having sharp chest pain, hacking coughing, blocked sinuses, and phlegm. It got progressively worse as the evening progressed, and I didn't get all that much sleep last night at all. Tossed and turned, and woke up coughing.

Anyway, to make a long story short, I called work to tell them I'm taking a sick day today, and I didn't go in to work, and have been taking it easy, but the coughing and chest pain is still there, and I'm running a mild fever. I called the doctor's office, and managed to get an appointment to see him in forty-five minutes, so I'm just about to go to the doctor's office.
