My cold has lingered for a week now. Despite my continual coughing and hacking, I thought I was getting better -- and then woke up this morning with a pounding sinus headache. So I'm going to the doctor.
I usually try to let my body take care of itself, so when this cold first arose and Dave urged me to go to the doctor, I resisted. I figure there's no point in spending money when my body will heal on its own.
Dave, on the other hand, went to the doctor promptly when he contracted this cold. He's still coughing a bit but he hasn't had nearly the scope of problems I've had. His cough was milder and he hasn't had any sinus trouble at all. He missed work one day, but I was out of commission for at least four days this week.
Was the difference because he went to the doctor, or just because the cold affected him less? Who knows? All I know is, I'm annoyed and sick of being sick. Argh!
