husband got sick on 7/13 and finally went back to work on Monday this week. He had a nasty flu bug and I was SOOOO CAREFUL while I was taking care of him! I washed my hands constantly! I was uber-conscientious about germs! True, I did sleep in the same bed with him, but I figured that if I hadn't caught after the first 7 days I wasn't going to. Monday I started getting what felt like asthma symptoms -- my lungs actually felt itchy! Then it turned into a dry cough. So I took some antihistamine and a puff off difficult child 1's Advair. Felt a bit better that day. Repeated that treatment Tuesday, but didn't have quite as good a result and the cough was a bit worse. Yesterday had to drive difficult child 1 100 miles each way to camp and by the time I got home, I was exhausted and coughing my head off. Now the cough's getting worse and I am wiped out (only took OTC cough syrup last night). No fever to speak of, though. I don't think this is allergies now. When is this nonsense going to END?
