*Hack hack hack* [Jan. 28th, 2008|06:52 pm]

Okay, so the antibiotics seem to be clearing up the "OMG head 'splodey" sinus crap quite nicely.

But my throat is still sore and I'm still suffering coughing spasms bad enough to make me throw up.

I actually felt better yesterday than I do today - even worked out a little, just to keep the blood moving. Today I feel all weak and miserable, the throat is definitely worse than yesterday and the coughing hasn't improved in the least. I finally gave up last night and slept in the recliner because upright I don't cough as much. Tonight I'm not even going to make an attempt at the bed - I tried lying down to read for a while and ended up gagging and gasping. The doctor's office won't have results from the blood work at least until tomorrow.

I am not having any fun.

Back to the couch. Sitting up to write is wearing me out.

Re: NOOOO!

I'm sure that I just have to fight my way through some nasty bug. If nothing shows up on the blood work, I will ask the doctor about antifungals.

It's just damned frustrating.

Re: I know how frustrating it is.

I wouldn't have even thought about it being geeky if you hadn't mentioned it. That's how geeky I am!

I always sleep elevated now when a cold takes hold. It really does help. My last cold was a beaut, but unlike before elevation, it did NOT end with asthma.

Asthma = yuck. Do not want.

Yuck is right. Besides the whole "Drowning in my own fluids" thing, it means the expense of a doctor visit, and inhalers, etc .

Ahh good, the antibiotics are working. Keep up with the tea and soups, stay hydrated, and a couple days will see you swinging up toward the light again. (Remember the yogurt to keep your intestines happy[ier].) Feel better!

Oh dear. Sounds like you need to go to sleep and stay asleep until the antibiotics clear things up. I hope you feel better tomorrow.

I did the absolute minimum amount of work I could get away with today. Fortunately, this is a pretty quiet week and I don't have anything tomorrow until the evening.
