i was right. i do have a broken rib, i assume from coughing so much. it has been six weeks since i started coughing, so i guess stress fractures can happen after that much abuse.
why do i keep coughing? walking pnumonia, i suppose. being a regular at the walgreen's pharmacy, they greeted me with enthusiasm and another round of antibiotics. now, not only do i feel like crap from the pnumonia and the coughing, but i feel like crap from the medicine.
physically, i could use a break right now. i'm not sure i have put together 4 months of health and riding in the last 3 years, starting with my accident at castlewood in 2004. seems like there is some sort of curse i have going.
