Double whammy

December 26, 2008

Apologies for the absense. I have been sick, yes you read it right.

Been sick for a few days now. I was out and about one day, and by the late afternoon I was starting to fever a little. When night came I was shivering like it was winter in Chicago. The highest temperature I remembered getting was 39.4C or 102.9F. The next day I drove my sorry ass to the clinic.

Diagnosis: Sinus AND throat infection. Have a merry Christmas.

Basically I was in bed for 3 about days, loaded up with meds. I am feeling a bit better now, seems that the fever is gone. *cross fingers* My sinus is still bothering me, giving me the occasional between-the-eyes headaches and whatnot. I still get tired easily.

Anyway I just wanted to wish everyone a belated Merry Christmas and have a wonderful New Year.

So I thought I was getting better right? Boy, was I wrong. I actually felt a lot better for 2 days after my course of antibiotics. But then my throat started to get sore again on Friday.

By last night, I had a hard time sleeping cause I was coughing half the time and swallowing felt twice as bad as before. I didn’t want to take any chances of getting worse and once again lose precious time from sleeping or feeling floaty so I brought my ass to the doctor’s this morning.

He seemed surprised to see me. I explained that my throat felt better but two days after I was done with my medication, it started to act up again.

He looked through my chart and the first thing he asked me was “Have you been under a lot of stress lately?”

I answered, “Ermm……..yes….heh….” *paiseh (sheepish) smile*

He smiled, as if to indicate that that was the answer to my problems. He checked my temperature, which is normal (and probably the ONLY normal thing about me HAH!), throat and breathing, AND mentioned that my throat is red. I have relapsed.

And now I’m on higher doses of antibiotics, and floaty drugs meds (codeine crap) that will make me feel totally useless and like a pile of goo for the remaining of this week. I can already tell I won’t be getting much work done this week.


Now I’m going to go feel useless on my bed.

Rainbow pills

November 20, 2008

I finally caved in and went to the doctor’s yesterday. I came home with an array of coloured meds. My favourite is, of course, the pink ones.

Yes, these are the meds that make me feel floaty. They really knocked me out unconscious 15 minutes or so after taking them. In fact, the dose I took around noon is still making me feel light-headed, even after I fell asleep for an hour.

A throat infection is what I have. I practically lost my voice and hardly ate (for my size ) in the last few days. Today I’m starting to get my appettite back and ate almost half of dinner, which is a good sign that I’m getting better.

Not only do I have a throat infection, I have been hit with the bloody curse, if you know what I mean. In addition to “battling” the worst sore throat EVER, I also have to deal with cramps, REALLY nasty cramps.

Oh what a fun week. Can’t wait to see what happens next week.


November 16, 2008

A VERY sore scratchy throat, stuffed up nose, pounding-between-the-eyes headache, stiff neck, aching body, feverish chills…

I’m wearing two t-shirts, socks and flannel bottoms. I’m still getting chills.

I just wanna crawl underneath the covers.

No updates anytime soon.

*Update Tuesday Nov 18*

Throat hurt so bad that I woke up at 5.30am, after going to bed around 2am (I know, I practically asked for it). I downed a painkiller and went back to sleep, only to be woken up by the stupid dog across the street that wouldn’t stop barking around 7am. As of right now, I’m on the verge of losing my voice now. *le sigh*

I just took a couple painkillers so that I can fall asleep tonight. At this rate, I forsee a visit to the doctor’s in the near future.

*Update over*
