Better Living Through Drugs :-)

Thursday, February 14, 2013

It is SOOOOOO nice to be feeling better, wahoooooooo! I can't tell you what a relief it is. Amazing how quickly those drugs kick in. I'm taking antibiotics (the accelerated 5-day regimen), cough syrup at night, and inhaler twice a day. It is so nice to not be coughing - well, still a tad, but not the deep chest cough anymore. And my energy is coming back! I walked all over the place at lunch yesterday running errands, and it didn't gas me at all (though I really regretted wearing my highest heels, LOL!).

And today Paul got up and went for a walk, so I did a solid half hour of yoga, which felt great. I was getting a little shaky by the end, but it was a good workout so that wasn't totally surprising. I'm just loving not feeling crappy and exhausted, it was really starting to depress me.

The bad news is that I dropped one of my antiobiotic pills down the drain this morning and couldn't retrieve it, ARGH. Not good, especially when I'm on the accelerated regimen, but what can you do. So I took the next one, I'll just have to be a day short. But I'm already feeling so much better that I don't think it'll be a big problem. Hopefully not!

Hope everyone is staying healthy!

    Glad you're feeling better. Yoga sounds like the perfect activity when on the mend.
