After four weeks with the flu, I feel I am getting near to the point where I might be turning the corner. It has only taken three doctor's visits, three bags of cough drops, one bottle of NyQuil, one bottle of Robutussen with codeine, Three Bottles of Robutussen without codeine, two boxes of echinacea tea, three jugs of lemon echinecea ginger juice, one bottle of Zinc lozenges, thee heads of garlic and an Abuterol inhaler. I'm still coughing, but at least I can move without exhaustion.
The flu season will be over in two months. And due to surplus, there are enough shots for everyone to get one if they so choose. Thanks! I do not begrudge losing my shot, as I have no idea how the old or infirm can make it through what put me down for a full month. Of course, I'm a whiner.
I was able to go into the doctor due to my new medical insurance. He couldn't do much, but it was nice to be able to take advantage of it. But do I think healthcare is worth impoverishing myself to use it, like the people who will be losing their MinnCare because they have a small bit of unlivable income? I don't know.
Luckily, I don't have to answer that question. Unfortunately, many will. Thanks, Gov. Pawlenty! This shot of Robutussen is for you!
