Grrr to Sickness

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

I have been sick on/off for the past 3 weeks, and I just can't seem to shake this bug. I did a round of Amoxicillin because I had such a terrible sore throat for the first week and a half, and that went away (I had Laryngitis SUPER bad, and pretty sure I had strep/tonsilitis too.) Was feeling great up until yesterday, and then I started to develop congestion and a lower sore throat, almost where an adams apple would be on a female. Only hurts when I swallow. Plus I am dry coughing a ton, which isn't fun. I am so sick of living on Dayquil and antihistamines! My new insurance at my job kicks in tomorrow, so I just need to tough it out ONE MORE DAY until I can go to the doctor and figure out what the heck is going on. I feel fine otherwise. I'm not drained by any means; I can still make it through an hour long cardio session and feel great. Now that I am congested so bad probably not so much. I have pole fitness class today, and I am NOT going to let this bug deter me. Grrrrr I hate colds!!!!!!!

    Yeah, I've had back to back colds since Easter :(
Each time I start to think, yay it's gone, it comes back again. It's not my immune system, it really is this cr@ppy weather. Normal highs for this time of year is +15 and we're still -2.

Exercise through what you can and rest when you can't. Remember to eat healthy even one days you can't exercise.

    Sounds like what I had two summers ago. I had tonsillitis. PLEASE go to an urgent care clinic and get tested for strep if there is any delay in your new health benefits!

Also, consider getting tested for household allergens. I am very allergic to dust mites, for instance. It can cause perpetual lung congestion, coughing, and even asthma symptoms that won't go away until I get all extra blankets and laundry out of the bedroom, wash the pillows in hot water, vacuum under the bed, etc. It's hard to distinguish allergy symptoms from a bad cold, though.

Feel better soon!
