So, yeah, I haven't been feeling great lately. In fact, I've been feeling pretty crappy.Oh yeah, and that too. Quite literally.
It all started a week ago last Saturday. I woke up with the WORST sore throat. I stuck it out with tea and my sugar free cough drops, but by Tuesday, I had a full on sneezing, watery eyes and stuffy, drippy nose. So I think, allergies! Right? Wrong. By Thursday my head was pounding, my face and eyes were stinging and swollen and I was miserable. My family threatened to tie me down, if I didn't go to the doctor, so I went and he diagnosed me with a sinus infection, or sinusitis.
Dang, if that wasn't torture, but I continued on like a trooper. The doctor gave me an anti-biotic, a Z-pack and sent me on my way. I started the anti-biotic immediately and by Friday I felt much better, but still not great.. Today, almost 10 days later, I still have sinus pressure and stuffiness, which doesn't make me feel great but that I can live with.
What I having the most trouble with is the side effect from the Z-Pack. The DREADED diarrhea.
Ok, so sorry to be so blunt here but...whoa, I'll take the freaking sinus infection and raise you a fever if I don't have to deal with this. But I do, and it hasn't been pleasant.
Seriously, I finished the Z-pack yesterday and I hope I never have to see one of those things again. This is the worst sort of any ailment I have ever had, AND I'm still not better. The sinus pressure has surpassed, but now I'm dealing with this new development that hopefully will be over today, since I finished the Z-Pack yesterday.
Say a prayer for me bloggers, cuz I just may need to go buy some Desitin, and soon.
