Not So Sick Anymore...

Thursday, February 13, 2014

Phew! That sinus infection really took its toll on me! On Monday, I ended up leaving work after lunch and going home early. In the morning I had called to try to get an appointment at the on-base clinic, but there were, of course, no appointments available, and they told me a nurse would call me within 24 hours. Well, hey. I at least tried to see a doctor, right? The sinus pressure surrounding my right eye was so bad, that I was just keeping my eye closed! I did still do some work at home, and then finally I heard from the nurse who gave me a referral to urgent care. So by 5pm, I was seen at Urgent Care, and went to Target to pick up a prescription for the Z-Pack. Just a sinus infection, but it was pretty bad, and I was told to stay home from work on Tuesday to let the antibiotics work while I rest. I was already feeling super stressed about missing more work since I had stayed home Friday, and took a half day Monday, but I also knew I really needed to get better. So I missed Art Journal Club on Monday night, and stayed home all day Tuesday, just resting on my couch. I really needed that, I think. I also missed my dance classes that night, but the sinus pressure/dizziness was even worse on Tuesday so I wasnt about to be heading out like that!

On Wednesday I headed back to work because I was really really stressed about missing anymore work and falling even further behind! I still felt absolutely horrible and my paralegal kept urging me to go home, but I knew I needed to get work done, and I was super, super productive all morning, and then after lunch I had a meeting, took a phone call, and left about 2 hours early, much less stressed because I had significantly caught up. I rested the rest of the night.

Today, I am feeling much better. I still have sinus pressure, but nowhere near as bad as it was, and I think the congestion is finally starting to drain. Gosh, this was the worst sinus infection I've had in a while. :( Tomorrow is my birthday, and who wants to be sick on their birthday, right? Well, I am looking forward to going to dance class tonight to celebrate my birthday with my classmates, and then tomorrow I am going to crafting night and celebrating my birthday with my fellow crafters. At least I wont be alone for my birthday this year. And hopefully the sinus pressure will be completely gone tomorrow, so that I can also get in a birthday run after work, too!

Plans for this weekend include possibly taking a yoga class on Saturday morning, and then spending the day shopping in Denver! My mom and I head to Disney in one week from tomorrow, too!

    That sinus infection sounds awful. You poor thing!

I'm glad you're on the mend now, though and that you've got some nice things lined up over the next couple of days.

Happy Birthday for tomorrow!

    emoticon Cos there's no emoticon which says "GLAD ur BETTER" !!! THANKFULLY huh? I KEEP on forgetting ur in Denvah !! I used to live in Aurora. I LOVED it there,, may return,, may not. Am not so sure,,, but, have 5 or 6 yrs maybe to make up my mind. Or I stay here,,, and get a car earlier than out there,, sides you all DRIVE NUT's !! When I was in aurora, last yr,,, people would RUN EACH OTHER OVAH and KEEP ON GOING !!!! As I was leaving,, packing that guy hit the lady with her kids,, one in the carriage,, which he DRAGGED for 2 blocks !! OH MY GOODNESS !! HOW HEARTLESS !!

Of course may DELIGHTFUL things happen in Aurora and Denver,, which as I told you ,, why I had moved there. I felt (I told ya bout gs), but I ALSO felt SO MUCH better,, I was being worked on for my back,, of course since NOT being able to find this in ME,, of COURSE NOT !! GRRRR we are EASILY 10 to 20 yrs BEHIND the rest of the nation ,,, we TRY to say that "as a joke", but it's NOT one. Its soo TRUE !! So much of Maine still have NO internet,, a LOT of it NO Elect, and some places even NO PLUMBING !

I hope you enjoy the day tomorrow,,,, here we are under the storm coming up the coast. w MIGHT get sleet, freezing rain,, of course only 6 to 10 inches of snow is NOTHING to us. but the ice,, that CAN slow us down. So if you were here,, most likely those plans would have to be extended.

TAKe CARE of those sinus's !! A friend of mine is ALSO sick with that, but she's NOT being right,, in NOT going to the Dr's and she ALWAYS needs to. UGHERS !! KIDS !
