I'm sick

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

Last Wednesday, after being off work for a week with an injury, I came down with a cold. I was diagnosed with an upper respiratory got some antibiotics and went on my merry way. I've been miserable ever since, coughing up a storm and not sleeping at night. Last night I couldn't even talk because every time I talked I had a coughing fit. This morning I called in sick to work and made myself another appointment. I went in and told the doctor that I wasn't feeling better and, if anything, I felt worse. I have now been diagnosed with a chest infection. I've been given steroids, more antibiotics, cough syrup with codeine, and the advice that I should slow down and just be sick for a couple of days. I skipped the gym tonight and am off work tomorrow, so I'm doing what I'm told for a couple of days at least.

Since I was sick all weekend I had to skip my mud run :( I was so excited about it but, while I will exercise while sick, even I know that rolling around in cold mud for a few hours when you have a chest infection is a stupid idea.

In wedding news, I'm pretty much done planning. We hired a celebrant on Sunday, and that was the last major thing to organise.

We now have
- Venue
- Celebrant
- Photographer
- Cake
- Favours and cake toppers (cake pops)
- Dress
- Shoes
- Bridesmaids (they are in charge of their dresses. I'm giving them the website and the material, length, and colour. They can pick what the want)
- Invitations
- Guest list
- Hair and make up

I can just chill until the new year!

    This is the first time that you've posted about being sick. You must have a very strong immune system. You've been through a lot of change lately. Change can really throw our bodies for a loop.
    I hope that you can enjoy the rest.

    Sounds like a rest is needed! Sorry you had to miss your mud run but you were wise to listen to your body.

    Feel better! There's a nasty infection going around, DH and I picked it up in Singapore and thought it was just a cold - after 2 weeks, we finally went to a dr for antibiotics. Remember lots of fluids too!
