Health Backslide... again
Saturday, June 08, 2013
At this point, I am throwing my hands up into the air and asking, WHY, a lot. I have been on 10 days of heavy antibiotics, a zpac for 5 days and a never-ending supply of steroidal nasal spray.
And my lymph nodes in my neck are still swollen - or maybe it's my tonsils - regardless, I am still swollen and lethargic. Every morning I go through a nausea stage which I have been combating pretty successfully with protein shakes. I've been told I am probably sugar-dropping, although this has never been a big issue for me. But the feeling of needing to puke, spinning while laying FLAT on the bed, and the tiniest of hunger pangs scream "PROTEIN SHAKE" because it has honestly worked for me thus far. So I am sticking with it.
There is NO chance I am pregnant so bite your tongue on that one, and I don't care to feel like I am drunk unless I AM DRUNK, so this really blows. And yes, I am sure I haven't had even a drop of an "adult beverage" in over 2 weeks.
I do go to the DOCTOR Monday morning, so maybe he will be able to shed some light on this subject, but at least the sore throat isn't back, nor is the fever. Those are 2 things I can do without. And I can't believe I am going to admit this, but I would prefer to be outside in the humidity sweating like a roasted hog than laying in bed ANOTHER day.
n the positive side of things (I am trying to focus on the positive lately), I am going to try to rally myself a bit later today and ride the bike for at least 20 minutes. If I can do that twice a day, I am pretty sure I can beat this mess back into the dirt where it belongs and get my feet back under me so I can get out on my walking trail again. It has rained for the past 2 days, so the yard needs mowing again - that's 3 times in 2 weeks!
So I am still here, just a lesser version of the fighting spirit within me, exhausted, and BORED!
Peace and Hugs,
