Hi everyone. I had a crazy last few weeks and would like to vent a little. First our power went out during the derecho storm that caused millions of people to also lose power. Our power was out for six days during some of the hottest weather of the year. Luckily we have a generator but it's not large enough to run the A/C. On top of that, there were the usual 4th of July festivities, most of which I didn't participate in but pushed myself to do a little for my kids' sake (had friends over for dinner/playdate). Then my sister visited and her partner wasn't exactly understanding about my illness (this is new for them) and accused me of being controlling when all I was doing was setting limits on activity. Sigh. So of course now with all this stress, I have come down with a cold that has probably developed into bronchitis, and I feel much worse overall. To add, I still haven't found a PCP to work with who believes I have CFS so I don't even have a doc to see just to make sure this doesn't develop into anything more serious. Most docs either aren't seeing new patients or have appointments weeks away. Any words of encouragement or advice/experience with colds/bronchitis would be appreciated. Hope everyone else is doing better.
