What's wrong with my lungs?

Hey, it's 3 weeks, and I'm still sick! And it's in my lungs, not in my sinuses. I went to the NHS walk in clinic yesterday and was told that I should see my GP, but also given amoxycillin. I don't understand why a mere cold would move into my lungs - it didn't happen to Jason. I'm wondering if there is something wrong with them.

Last night I had my old boss over for tacos (last package of tortillas, oh no!) and got a surprise visit from Josh who was killing time while his bf was out of town. It was all fairly noisy and OB was so surprised at how taco shells were made that I laughed. OB also brought two bottles of Rioja (yay!) and was good about leaving at 10:15 so I could get enough sleep. And I remembered to take an antihistamine before I went to bed AND prop myself way, way up on the pillows, so I actually got 8 hours of sleep last night, much better than the 6 or so of the night before. Still, I'm really looking forward to the weekend and getting to sleep sleep sleep for two nights in a row.

I hope the antibiotic knocks it out for you.

3 weeks is way too long, I'm glad you went to the doctor about it. It sounds a bit like the bronchitis I had round Easter, actually.

yup, amoxil is not normally given for colds... bronchitis sounds more like it, i hope you get a chance to see your GP soon.

If they're giving you antibiotics, it's a bacterial infection rather than a cold - though it might have been the cold that allowed it to get a toehold! Here's hoping the drugs work and you feel better soon.

(Oh, and don't drink much on amoxycillin - it's not actually contraindicated but will make you feel sick as a dog!)
