I’m Sick

I have Bronchitis and it’s not fun. According to the breathing test the doctor gave me, I’m about 2/3 of the breathing capacity that I should be.

I also have a nose that won’t quit running, a wheeze when I breathe, a fever, a nasty cough, and diahreah (although I suspect that’s due to my pizza and whiskey diet.)

I’ve also been tired as hell lately (again, playing hockey twice a week while sick isn’t helping) ((although I did score 5 points last game while hungover and sick)) ((( is there such a thing as double or triple parenthesis?))) ((((I feel like a LISP programmer))))

Anyway.. I’m on a steroid inhaler and some vicodin cough syrup. If anybody ever has trouble sleeping, try vicodin cough syrup.

On a side now, the bronchitis wikipedia article is a good indication of why not to trust wikipedia. That article lists smoking as the cause, but I’m not a smoker.

According to my doctor, acute bronchitis (which I have) is viral. Chronic bronchitis is caused by smoking or pollution.

  1. Hi,

    A propos the parenthesis (not that you asked (but it looks like you might have done (to me anyway))) I think that you can have as many as you like but if they are nested then you’d have to end then multiple times.
    (So this is fine (perhaps)) (noses smell) (this is separate as it is a separate topic (but this is a nested topic))


    S 😉

  2. Heh.. Thanks Sean.

    I guess I should have used Fark style // /// //// instead eh?
