Just when I thought I was over being sick, BAM! My colds strikes back with MORE coughing, plus fever(slight), chills and aches!
I ended up going to Alpha Care today. I had not been there before and was glad it was open so I didn't have to go to the ER (I do not have a Primary Doctor, yet). I did not have to wait too long. I was relieved to find out I didn't have the flu, but I have to stay home from work until Wednesday. It's just a really bad cold. The doctor gave me antibiotics, cough medicine and nasal spray.
I found that the local pharmacy, just down the road from the hospital (where Alpha Care was) takes Tricare Select so I was able to go there. Now, I do have to pay a copay since it is not on Post, but it was worth it!
I have also put a call in to a local doctor to get contacted for a new patient appointment, so I can actually have a primary doctor. Only one doctor on the list Alpha Care gave me was taking new patients!!
I am tired of being sick. I just want to clean my house and put up my Christmas decorations. Any exertion gets me coughing. I did manage to get my tree put up and decorated yesterday. I would like to get my aluminum tree put up and decorated tonight and my collector ornaments out on a shelf. But I will be lucky if I can manage any part of those.
