    Had to go to my doctor a day earlier than my appointment today..felt so lousy I didn't think I'd live till tuesday!..I've been suffering with a bad case of bronchitis --had it last month,got antibiotics,and got better after 2 weeks--then out of the blue last sunday night I awoke in my shop after dozing off for an hour watching TV with a sore throat--same way it started a month ago.. :doah: :( ...

    I've been coughing up green phlem all week--went last thursday to see the doctor--the guy I usually see was out--so some other woman doctor looked at me--prescribed different antibiotics,and told me to BUY Mucinex--some pills that supposedly make you "expetorate" better (translation--cough up snots! :eek: )..

    Today the doctor hooked my up to a "Nebulizer" machine--I had to breath thru it for 10 minites--then he prescribed a similar antibiotic to the one I took last month--and"presnedone",a streoid that helps you breathe--my mother with Emphasema had to take the same stuff--I also got an "Albuterol" inhaler that asmah patients use,another sterioid!...I'll be going "Bonaducue" pretty soon--...(anyone seen "Danny" from the partridge family lately! :eek1: )..

    I feel somewhat better,but not happy about being a walking drugstore..everything is so costly at the pharmacy--while poking around waiting for my prescriptions to be filled,I notice a stupid pair of "oder eaters" are 5 bucks now! :eek1: --only bargains I saw were 1157 light bulbs--2 for 1.19 !! cheaper than autozone!.. :doah: :confused: ..

    I just hope my lungs clear out by weeks end..I cant stand being cooped up inside with me mother--its driving me insane.. :screwy: .not to mention me feeling like crap.. :mad:

    The "Mucinex" didn't do anything but releive me of ten bucks, that should have gone for gas or a new caliper for my 79 C10(which conveiniently decided to cause the right front brake to drag the 3 miles to the doctors office,and the brakes were REAL hot on the passenger side! --smelled burnt pads almost immediately after I left my house..:( :doah: )..tried to fix it today,but had to give up--I'm just too sick to F*** with it now--the bleeder wont loosen,I think it will break off-(the "nipple part sheared off!)---the brake hose is the culprit--I loosened it from the caliper,and the rotor spins free--.

    IF I could get the bleeder open,I do have new hoses,I could get away with doing just the hose..--but I doubt it will..I might as well get 2 rebuilt calipers,and pay my friend to install them and the hoses for me..I hate paying someone else to do work I am normally capable of..my moms caravan needs the exhaust header pipe bolts cut off and replaced too--I'm out of oxogen,and I'm too sick to be lying under a vehicle on the ground--you really need a lift to get at those bolts--more money I'll have to waste--and to top it off,I owe my mother 140 bucks for my car insurance bill.. :(

    I did meet a nice looking lady at the doctor--she got struck by a car at a nearby supermarket--some crackhead was making a getaway after his companion snatched an elderly womans purse,and she was unfortunately in his path when he revved up his engine and dumped the clutch--she was thrown 15 ft away,landed on another cars hood! :eek1: --of course the crooks made a clean getaway--no one thought to look for a licence plate #--they were too busy looking after the lady who got hit.. :mad:

    Life just dont get no better than this..... :surepal: :cool: :frown1: --the wosrt part is none of theese pills get you stoned! :haha: --and I can't drink or take any other "medication" either.. I asked the doctor for something to make my stiff neck and back feel better--ADVIL is all he said I could take! :angry1: :frown1:

    Not trying to bum you out (if you really DO want to be HUGE) but nasal steroids won't make you muscular.... :D

    Flonase, Beconaise, etc. are all steroids.... but they are not absorbed into the body like an anabolic steroid.

    I've been on nasal steroids for the last 10 years...I'd be Schwarzenegger by now if it really made you muscular!!! lol.

    Prednesone (sp??) won't do it either. It's not an anabolic steroid.

    It had better NOT!!

    I certainly hope NOT!!. :eek1: :doah-- It doesnt list penis shrinkage as one of the side effects on the list that came with the prescription!( but not to worry--there's always Viagra!--or I can See Alice!. :haha: :haha:

    Darn--I was hoping I'd look like Hulk Hogan after I was on this stuff for awhile!
    guess I'm stuck being a 6'4" 167 lb. beanpole! :(

    But that cartoon might be a good example of what my nose will look like after a few weeks of steroids in my nasal passages! :haha: :haha:

    Stuff must be working--I feel much better than yesterday--my arms and legs are still weak though--my work boots feel like cinder blocks..Its a rainy cool day,so I'm just going to do nothing,like usual..I'm hoping I feel good enough to fix my 79 C10 's brakes tommorrow when its supposed to be 80 and sunny-

    -Autozone wants 16 bucks exchanged for calipers--so I'm undecided whether to buy one,both,or just throw on the one brake hose and try drilling out the bleeder screw( I'm 99% sure it will snap!-and that kills the "core" value--another 7 bucks!--and those "repair bleeder" fittings cost 8 bucks,so its probably better off to just get the rebuilt calipers,than to dick around drillig and tapping an old caliper that might seize soon anyway-- :mad:

    I hate to spend so much on rebuilt calipers ,and go thru the work of doing the hoses (they SUCK to get at where they pass thru the frame--the steel lines might not unscrew either,and snap off- :doah: --)--I plan on selling it anyway,so I hate to do all the work,and spend all that money on something I wont have anymore!..I dont want a disgruntled buyer coming back a few days later bitching about the brakes being bad either though.. :surepal: .sigh.. :( :crazy:

    That stuff seriously screws me up. Makes me hyper and able to consume mass quantities of beer w/o a buzz. I get some "roid rage" from it too!

    no pushers here...

    The doctor I see and most others here are pretty hard to get any painkillers from now...too many druggies were getting percocets and valiums and sellng them at a profit!..now unless you have a broken leg or something,tylenol or a similar pill is all you'll get..and oxycontin abuse is so bad here,you have to order it 24 hrs in advance,armed gaurds have to deliver it to cancer patients! :eek1: --the other day a pharmecutical van full of drugs including oxycontin and morphine was stolen in a nearby town--the thugs hit the guy in the back of the head as he was coming out of a patients house!--they found it a few towns away--empty of course!.. :mad:

    I WAS feeling better until today-last night it got down to 50 degrees,and all the windows were open--it was showery and muggy yesterday..I got all filled up with fluid in my sinuses and lungs again thanks to the chill I got--and I barfed up half my breakfast right after I took my medication... :doah: :( ---I hope the pills stayed in me,so I can get some benifit from them...had diarrea too..feel crappy as hell...

    I'm praying this goes away soon--I've been sick off and on for over a month now--and I'm really getting bummed out over the whole situation--I need to get a ton of stuff done,I owe money to my mom and other friends I cant pay back till I get to work,etc...life is sucking pretty bad here for me lately--only way it'd be worse is if I were in New Orleans or Iraq... :angry1: :surepal: or dead!.. :blush: ...
