Adult RSV. Who knew that was even a thing? Not me.
I worked out with my trainer last Thursday and started coughing after that but I just assumed it was because it was 10* outside that day and I was really hot post-workout. Fast forward a week and I am still coughing, wheezing, and just plain ole miserable. YUCK!
I went to work yesterday and started feeling even worse. After first rounds I went to the employee walk-in clinic on campus and was immediately treated like a pariah. HA!
No really, I had to wear this mask the whole time. Those things are suffocating. After my diagnosis of RSV I went back to work. I had to wear the mask the whole time and after I finished seeing my patients I went home. Normally I would have been sent home but since I didn’t have a fever I got to stay.
I got my meds and went home and took a long, uninterrupted, glorious nap. It was beautiful!
So now here I am with my Tessalon Perles and Albuterol inhaler…officially the respiratory therapist who cannot breathe.
Have you ever had Adult RSV? Even heard of it? I know babies get it frequently but I had never heard of an adult getting it until now. Only me…
