What IS this?!

Saturday, May 19, 2012

I have not been feeling well.

At first I thought I had slept on my neck wrong. Woke up and my neck and head ached to the point of nausea. So, I stayed down.

Four days went by, 2400 mg of Ibuprofin a day and it wasn't getting any better. Hubby suggest I try Claritin. His thought that they were allergies clogging my sinuses so desperate, I try it.

Began to feel better. Yeah! Even went to the gym so youngest could swim.

Yesterday I wsa feeling pretty good and began making plans for this week. I'm making a Word Calendar of Workouts that I want to accomplish this month. I've gained back up to 180 and this does not please me.

Actually, this is a major "booooo"


I went to my daughter's AA graduation yesterday. Took her to dinner. I'm so proud of her. It's not a big deal to a lot of people, but I know the hours she put into this. I know she hasn't had a summer off yet in over 2 years. I know she took course overloads TO finish in two years and she did it with honors. This, after having such a rough time from 13-18....I just cannot express how proud of her I am to do such a 180.

**with honor tassel**

Came home after dinner and went to bed.

Woke up dizzy, in sooooooo much pain. I came out and hubby tried making me coffee but I was so nauseated I went back to bed.

Took a Claritin and two Excedrin

It was 2:30 before I was able to face the day.

Man I am SO SORRY!! So sorry for ever having doubted anyone who said sinus pains or allergies were painful. Im normally one to kind of "scoff" at pain. Get over it and move on type of gal, but Holy Smokes!! Trust me, this chick has been through open heart surgery, kidney surgeries, and more. I know what pain is. THIS though. OMan!!

I guess I will go collect stock in Claritin or something. Maybe start taking it before bedtime. Maybe that will help.

But that's what's happening. That's what is going on. Give me a couple of more days and I will be back to body in progress :o)

Now, where's my "morning" coffee?

    Sorry, I missed this blog. Now I've read your other blog, so guess I'm up to date.

Congrats to your daughter...that is awesome. Call me stupid, but what is AA graduation. I mean, I know AA, but I doubt that's what you meant.

    Ouch! but glad you have a DIAGNOSIS (ahem, ahem as I straighten my stethoscope & smooth out my lab coat ;-) !

I have done a lot of research on the DASH diet; trying to convert my dad since he is on not one, not two, but THREE anti-hypertensives! but this is an extreme uphill struggle... The man loves his cereal, hamburgers & Ritz crackers!

    I love my niece and I am SO proud of her! As for you Missy...I know that you will do the steps to get your health in line, we have a vacation to go on in 5 years and we both have to be in tip top condition! (that includes the hubby's...we have to be their role models.)

    Not to be bossy but have you been checked by a doctor lately?
My neck pain was partially allergies but I also have arthritis in my neck and that plus the allergies made me miserable. So going to the doctor helped me find other solutions that helped with the pain. Keep in touch.

    Allergies / Sinus Headache prevented me from doing a fun community 5K this morning... it definitely can ruin a day or two. Hope you feel better and congrats to the daughter on her graduation!
