I was diagnosed with bronchitis yesterday which is nothing new for me. I have suffered from chronic bronchitis for many years. It is always the same, I go to the doctor and get antibiotics and prescription cough syrup and eventually I feel better. The issue is that I get on a plane Saturday for Spain. I feel a bit better but at the same time I can’t believe that I’m going to be traveling in less than a week. I have looked forward to this trip for so long and now I’m sick. I have most of my packing done except for the last minute items. I still need to finish my lesson plans for this week and I’m not looking forward to that because I’m so tired. My biggest issue right now is that I got no sleep last night and it was impossible to nap today. I keep coughing which is literally driving me crazy. I really hope I can sleep tonight but I’m not counting on it. I have to get well which requires sleep. Why is it that the medication always keeps me from sleeping?
