Sick Bay

2:00 PM

Hey blog readers! It's been a busy week. I haven't mentioned just how sick I've been over the last few weeks because it really didn't flow with the updates on Valentine's. 

 The first week of my sickness I had general cold symptoms. Sore throat, runny nose, stuffiness - yuck! Someone recommended Mucinex. I bought some and felt a lot better. However, my cold persevered. Week two I continued to have symptoms, but still pushed my way through the week. Who has time to be sick, anyway? Then the worst part happened, the dreaded cough. Hack, hack, hack....all the time. At home, at work, when I laid down to sleep. It drove me (and probably my husband and co-workers) crazy!

The beginning of week three I finally waved my white flag and went to a walk-in clinic this week. The verdict? The doctor did say that it looked like early bronchitis. He said they would treat the symptoms and hopefully have me feeling better soon.

I got a (painful, but effective) steroid shot, a breathing treatment, some heavy duty cough meds and my very own Z pac. I think I could run a mini-pharmacy out of my kitchen!


Several days into my treatment I'm feeling better. Not totally healed, but I think I'm headed in the right direction. I hope to be back to my old self soon.

Stay well, out there. Because because being sick stinks!

  2. I feel your pain. I had a 3 week cold that turned out to be strep :/ Then, I ended the past two weeks with migraines and had to get a shot for those. Glad both you and I are feeling better!
