I left work early Friday and went to the minor med where they confirmed I did indeed have a sinus infection. I got a Z Pack and they wanted to give me a script for Zrytec-D which I declined because it has pseudoephedrine in it, which you're not supposed to take if you have thyroid issues. And the one time I listened to a nurse who told me it was okay to take it anyway, I thought I was going to die.
I know I can be a little over dramatic, it's part of my charm, and also because I'm a writer and we tend to embellish. But seriously, I thought I was going to die. I was drenched in sweat, and my heart was racing like I was running a marathon. That is the only time, as a fat person, that I honestly thought I was going to have a heart attack.
Anyway, I got some Mucinex D to go with my Z Pack, and went home and napped like a champ. The only thing I did all weekend was go to the grocery store. There was a lot of napping, and medicine taking, and nose blowing.
I still sound horrible, but aside from the sinus head ache that won't quit, I feel better. I was expecting to have to work late today, but it looks like I won't have to so I'm going to do a makeup walk after work. It's supposed to rain the rest of the week so I'll probably drive out to my parent's house and walk on their new treadmill for the rest of my walks this week.
