Day 7!

Monday, January 14, 2013

OK, I saw the dr today and she offered me a steroid shot to help me get over this nasty little bug. I declined because I think I can get better the rest of the way on my own. I have Cushing's Syndrome and I have to be extra careful getting steroids. It spikes my cortisol hormone, drives up my blood sugar, makes me hungry and then I gain weight. Not what I want to do when I'm trying to lose weight! She also recommended a different cough syrup for me to take. And, I can always come back she said if I decide to get the steroid shot.

So today I had a little more energy although I did take about a 3 hour nap this afternoon. I still have nasal and sinus congestion and this lingering cough. All in all, I think I am finally on the mend.

Thank you to everyone for their thoughts and well wishes during this past week.

    I feel your pain. I have a thing that is lingering. The other day I tried hot water with some lime juice on an empty stomach. I prefer limes instead of lemons. My sinuses cleared pretty quick.
