Have Bronchitis and only meds for today, don't really know if I'm much better 3 weeks later tbh, been on meds for a week now.

I'm terrified of having no meds tomorrow.... every day around the same time my breathing goes really bad again for a few hours , I'm assuming it's when one of the meds stops working and takes a few hours to kick back in.


slept really bad last night too, like some weird delusional/confused state I'm praying I'm not coming down with something else at the same time

I was in bed last night from around 5-6pm until 8am... my neighbour was having a party though until 3am so maybe just had really terrible sleep quality.

Made sure to blast some music loud when I wake up to thank him.....

My wife always seems to be I'll. I think it's the adult version of being a naughty kid and it being your punishment at Christmas

Yes, almost every year. and feel the OP's pain as I suffer from chronic uncompensated labyrinthitis which is very similar. Have a feeling it's to do with working hard this time of year then suddenly having downtime.

I usually get ill at the beginning of December and it clears up by the big day. Same happened this year (just a very light cold nothing serious) I don't recall ever being ill on the day itself.
