My misery continues as my body is still racked with discomfort and medications. My appetite is still in the throws of "adjustment"... and I have slept more hours in the last two days than the previous week, or so it seems!
Still, I have not had the desire for comfort food, although tonight I did make myself a smoothie with a frozen banana and an egg and 4 oz of 2% milk...it was tasty, provided protein and fluids which I am forcing down my throat... and I think the smoothie filled up my stomach which has been aching due to the powerful antibiotic that I am taking... but...the good news is that...My fever finally broke (I think for the 3rd time) this afternoon, and I am not feeling warm at all as I write this...so in a couple of days I will be back on track...hopefully nonetheless for wear and ready to start my C25K program once again. sigh... It feels like my core muscles have taken a beating so I will postpone my pushup training for at least one more week..
Now I have a plan... and the Food Demon has had no holiday here... and I am optimistic about my clearing head and chest.
Thank you to alllllll of you who offered me well wishes and support! I cannot tell you how much that means to me, knowing you are all there. This has motivated me to be looking forward, not burying my face in the puddle of misery, so from the bottom of my heart, thank you!
Glad to see water glasses, drink alot and let your body heal. I think you are choosing great sick foods. I have a bum shoulder and I have a hard time following directions and not using my arm and letting it heal. 2769 days ago
I hope you get well soon and completely! This has been going on for awhile--yikes!
The sickest I've ever been was this last Feb. when I came down with the flu, followed by pneumonia (first time ever for pneumonia.) It took me 3 weeks to get well, and about 6 weeks to feel fully well, probably because I had to keep going to work (except for 5 days off.) It was hard to keep a bright outlook during that time....being sick just takes everything out of you. So I sympathize!
