Still just sick in Barcelona…
So, you know how I said I was sick some weeks back? Well, even after going to the hospital in Madrid, even after taking two different cough medicines, even after weeks of suffering, I was still not feeling better and my cough just wasn’t going away.
My cough seemed to be getting better. And then it got worse.
And then I got a sore throat. And a high fever. And chills. And seriously didn’t know what to do.
Luckily the woman I’m staying with in Barcelona called a private doctor for me. So I went the other day and he spoke decent English. He said it’s not a problem with my lungs but it a viral infection that turned into a histamine infection.
So he prescribed me some penicillin and antihistamines and ibuprofen.
And, let me tell you, getting treated was cheaper to get medical attention here without insurance than it would have been at home with insurance.
I spent almost my whole week in bed watching movies and downloaded Food Network TV shows and whatever I could get free on mtv.com and DVDs of Mad Men.
And at least my sore throat and fever have gone away. Though I am still coughing. And I’m wondering if that will ever subside…
