I have been Ill all over christmas, new years and it looks like it will be rolling on into Feb at this rate!

It came from no where, first it was a horrible temp, then coughing then after 3 or so weeks of that, I then have pain under my left breast. The nurse things its from coughing, im not so sure.

Iv spent the last 2 months in bed, sleeping, or taking my 100's of meds! Not only did i have to take my Thyroid and iorn tablets but also had Anti Bi's pain killers and anti flams! Oh so im just popping pills like there is no tomorrow!
