Exactly ... which is why my primary will often scrip me a zpack when I have a rhinovirus, I have a noted predisposition to roll into pneumonia when I am ill. Sucks, but at least he recognizes the uniqueness of each patient. I do wish I were my husband, he rarely has complications to basic illnesses. THough in retrospect, perhaps not - I swear he could go online and look at a picture of poison ivy and get it ... *sigh* [poor guy hates me, I am one of the rare people that is very non-allergic to it. I can handle it and get nothing.]
