Well, here I am on the 7th day of sickness with laryngitis and bronchitis. I started last Friday night with a severe sore throat that progressed over the weekend to the loss of my voice. Had to stay home Monday from work, since I am a nurse and my voice is an essential thing to have when speaking with patients. After a day of resting my voice and drinking fluids, my voice came back and I happily went to work on Tuesday. I even felt well enough to go to my personal trainer session after work. By the time I finished with PT, I was starting to loose my voice again. ARGGHH!! I finally broke down and went to the Dr. on Wednesday. He gave me the diagnosis of laryngitis, which I had already figured out, and bronchitis. GREAT, I thought. Can't work, can't exercise, strictly rest and fluids. Oh and lets not forget the two scrips he gave me, an antibiotic and cough suppressant. So, I let my boss know what the MD said and canceled my other PT sessions for the rest of the week.
So far, I have been at home moping about. I am a social creature by nature, I was not meant to be cooped up in the house with no interaction. I am going crazy with boredom!!! I can only be proud of one thing at this moment and that is I haven't binged or strayed off my nutritional plan, knock on wood:) I never thought sickness could go on this freaking long!! I mean I was on a record steak, exercising and food journaling. Now I have been stopped cold in my tracks because of this stupid aggravating sickness!! HELP!!!
