...and it felt like most of the contents of those trays were jammed a spot just below my ribs on the left side. From the amount of pain involved, I thought I had just broken a rib. After a couple of minutes, I realized I hadn't, because I could breathe without pain. I went to the Immediate Care place nearby this afternoon. X-rays were taken, and the new diagnosis came down: I have bronchitis and perhaps a muscle tear. It only hurts when I cough. Or twist.
UPDATE: I realized just now that I never did get around to explaining the title of this post. When I ask "Why create those???", I'm referring to viruses that cause this whatever-it-is that I've got. Both Ph.Duck and his spouse are dealing with it, and from what he was told, the ick that's in this area is actually two viruses, one piggybacking on the other. One brings the cold/flu symptoms, the other carries the crap I'm dealing with. I'd love love love to know why these things came to be.
After the first sentence, I was ready to write a "go get checked for bronchitis" comment. Guess I didn't have to do that.
Two or three years ago, we had a combo of "common cold leading to bronchitis" and "friggin' laser beams whooping cough" running through the office. Thankfully(?) I only got the bronchitis version. So, you've got my sympathy. It sucks. (But it's better than whooping cough.)

Since we've had an effective vaccine for years, it's pretty depressing.

Oh, but you see, vaccines aren't green.
