Coughing

leave a comment »

A few days ago, I started having an itchy throat.  It turned into a cough.  A bit of a flemmy cough.  I have been working my self pretty hard, going to the gym each day.  After getting such great news about my numbers, I took myself off – never do that – sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim.  This is a pill I took once a day to prevent pneumonia.  You should take it when you are doing well (over cd4 count of 200) for 3 to 6 months.  I was over 200 for probably two weeks.

In any case, I got scared and started to taking it again.

Pills are scaring.  And relying on them to live is scarier.
