time for me to fight off the ugly chest cold! I was lucky enough to not get it last year, instead I just dealt with a blood clot. This year, not so lucky. I got sick almost three weeks ago and last Sunday the cough started. By Thanksgiving I was coughing up lungs and feeling as if I'd been rapidly punched in the stomach. Yesterday I decided it was time to head to the doctor. I was given a breathing treatment and prescribed a couple inhalers and some cough medicine with codeine. One of the inhalers was the powdery stuff called Advair.
It works great and I finally feel like a can breath again. The bummer part is apparently my insurance feels that this medicine isn't worth covering so this month supply cost me $125. I now know that the cost of breathing precious air is just over $100. Thank goodness I only need a month supply or I might have to hold my breath a bit more.
