Pneumonia is the "schizophrenia" of lung disorders
| By this I mean it seems the term pneumonia
is a catch-all for a wide range of lung disorders with vastly different causes, symptoms and manner of treatment | And I'm stuck with it |
I am recuperating but the wait is interminable | I'm not a good patient | I told the doc I'll have removed all the wallpaper by my fingers come Monday | I see it more as unfairly limiting my many things to do | Bruce and another doc friend say I'm my own worst enemy ["Lemme move just one more truck load of firewood...
" I'll tell them | I suppose I just don't know how to rest |
From what I'm reading, and based on the symptoms, the kind of pneumonia
I have is mycoplasma
pneumonia | It has few symptoms but those it has include "violent" coughing attacks and barely discernable mucus, resulting in little coughed up | It is a fairly "common" type and about 20% of all cases of pneumonia are attributed to it | It is treatable with antibiotics |
So it is waiting I have to deal with | ...back to copying CDs onto the hard drive I suppose |
Bedrest! Bah! Humbug!
