This Illness is Whipping Me

My latest illness is really whipping me this week. The sinus side of things is starting to come in pretty heavily and this is pretty unusual because normally my sinus infections turn into bronchitis not the other way around. However, they are simultaneous right now. Do you know how hard it is when you can't breathe out your nose and breathing out your mouth makes you cough? I wind myself doing anything besides laying in bed. It hasn't stopped me from being at work but I have to keep reminding myself to slow down.

My left ear has started bothering me as well so that must be the ear infection side of things. Luckily, in comparison, it is minor compared to everything else although it does ring when I get in a coughing spell. Actually, I think my tooth hurts me worse than my ear. Oh, an update on that, the dentist agreed and we will have it pulled next Tuesday. Now I just have to survive another week with it. I'm not looking forward to it but at least there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

I'm also still getting the low-grade fevers. If that keeps up through tomorrow, I will be calling the doctor back to see if I should be worried about it possibly turning pneumonia or if it is probably just from the ear infection.

Ok, I just wanted to check in since I hadn't in a few days. Now off to take the mountain of meds I'm on.

  1. Sorry I haven't popped by for a while, but...I know that illness isn't whipping you, illnesses can never beat people like you, that ain't just Irish charm, "it's cause I know, okay gal".

    Just jestn', but I kinda mean it! The worst I've been having is a load of dental work, loads of pain but the smile is looking the best it's been for years. I told my dentist, " I want to look American". He's done a good job but cost me a fortune, luckily the insurance covers most. I've been reading the posts, so are you up for a lot more surgery? Hope it's soon and not too much...we have a saying here in Holland, it's kinda lost a bit in transation..."Sterk" it means "Strong", or "Be Strong"...But I won't even say it, because strong is written all over you...and in the nicest possible way...and that's what counts.

    Greetings to you and the family...tell your hubby he's doing fine too... I know it's sometimes harder on the other half.

    You've got it whipped...don't worry.
