Quick Update

Sunday, December 15, 2013

We had a huge project due Thursday at work. Lots of hours last week leading up to it. I FINALLY went to the doctor Friday to see if this cough was more than just a cough (after 12 days, I'd guessed as much!). I have bronchitis :( It's viral, so I just have to wait it out and treat the symptoms. I also have pleurisy (which I'd never heard of) where the lining of your chest wall and lungs becomes inflamed. The inflammation causes friction when they layers rub against each other, which hurts when you breathe or cough. I honestly though I cracked a rib or something because the pain was only in once spot on my back, right under my shoulder blade, but hurt really bad.

Needless to say, I have not exercised at all. I have been trying to up my vitamin C, eat plenty of veggies, drink a ton of water and pretty much lay low. The pleurisy has subsided, so I'll do some much needed yoga this afternoon. I'm still talking Dayquil all day and Nyquil all night.

There was another Groupon deal for a gym that we bought. It's actually for the same gym the deal was for last time. While I didn't really like the gym, they do have classes that I didn't fully take advantage of last time. Since I've been sick, I'll end up starting my 1 month membership at the beginning of the year with all of the "new year's resolution" folks. I guess I'll just look like one of them :)

We have a few warmer days coming up this week. I'm hoping to get a run in outside during the nicer weather, depending on how my lungs are feeling. I'm still very mucousy (sorry TMI). Hoping that goes away soon.

I hope everyone is doing well. I've been trying to keep up with everyone's blogs. I've read way more than I've commented on, so I'm still adequately stalking each of you :)

    Sounds like you've cleared a big hurdle at work... just in time for Christmas! :-D Glad you managed to see a doctor and get some clear direction on your cough. I've had viral bronchitis before as well, and it's a serious pain in the buttocks. I had to be prescribed an inhaler of sorts with special medicine for it - the cough had stayed with me for weeks at that point. Definitely keep laying low until it passes, sounds like you're taking good care of yourself.

I love the thought of you starting with all the resolution folks in January, lol! I don't know why. I think it's because I envision you as an old hand at the whole fitness and exercise thing, so you'll be running laps around everyone. :-D That's the image in my head at least, and I'm sticking with it. Nice to read your words, Christy, missed you! :D

    I had to laugh at the stalking blogs comment. That's me too! Seems I have only been able to catch up by "reading" peoples blogs.

Hope you are feeling better soon! Healing (((hugs))) and bring on the warmer weather. Take care:)
