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.
