My trip to the doctor yesterday...only good news was down 5#

Thursday, February 06, 2014

No wonder I have felt sooooo badly! Aside from battling some depression about hubby being on the road, I have been having a hard time shaking this 3 weeks of illness. I had a sinus infection a couple weeks ago and then yesterday I finally broke down and went to the doctor agian. She set me up with another round of antibiotics, a steroid shot in my b00ty emoticon , and script for an inhaler I can not afford! Not to mention,...they took my copay, 3 vials of blood, and wanted my pee! Lmao I was just about out of things to give 'em! emoticon The note at the top of my lab work said "possible pneumonia" as diagnosis. Yay...NOT!

I have not even attempted to workout in nearly 3 weeks because of my asthma really flaring up. I generally have very SUPER mild asthma and now I worry about how to workout safely. Until it is back to normal, I will take it easy. So, NO working out and eating all sorts of warm comfort foods in the icy weather. That is no bueno! Ugh

Today I do feel some better. That shot did wonders for my coughing and breathing! Wish I had gone in when it started getting bad. I am going to wait until Monday to start back up at the gym. Honestly, I can hardly wait! I am just feeling so much better today than I have in weeks. I KNOW I need to take it easy and I will. But I am sick of my sweats and "fat" pants. I can't fit into my work clothes correctly(if at all) and so I avoid taking jobs. I am a substitute teacher for now and I HAVE to get back to work! We need the $. Hubbys has a slow Jan & Feb at work and we are squeaking by at the moment.

Well, so this sort of derealiment is going to be hard for me to bounce back from. But my spirits are sky high today ! emoticon

P.S. Part of my good is due to just narrowly escaping disaster last night. I just so happened to be on "pipe watch", with this horrible weather and my anchiet shack, and a space heater began throwing sparks. It was 3 am and I should have been asleep. My 3 babie were sleeping and this house would have gone up in minutes. I HATE space heaters and use them rarely. Not only am I a bit too freaked out to sleep, I just feel so lucky today! lol

Thank you for taking the time to read my rambling... emoticon

    Hey there, take care of yourself!! The very fact that you feel better says that this was a bacterial infection, not a virus! Go easy... drink some chicken broth . Believe it or not, tha old wives tale about chicken soup being good for you, actually is true! lots of good studies done about this!

    As far as the space heater.. PLEASE be careful!

    I think with your good spirits and your healthy attitude you will lick this illness soon. Take it slow getting back into your exercise routine and don't overdo it, as you will set yourself back. Good luck!
