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,

    Have they tested you for Epstein Barre? My daughter had that and she had one sickness after another. Ask your daughter about it.
    I hope you feel better really soon. Being sick just bites.

    Sorry to hear you are still sick -the fact that your lymph nodes or tonsils are swollen is an indicator you have some bug you are trying to fight off :( It would be nice if your Dr. could figure out what it is, because 10 days of heavy anitbiotics should have given you some relief by now. So maybe its a virus instead.
    I get your frustration about the exercise. Another day of no exercise and excess eating is getting to me (relatives and treats poured into town). The leg isn't much better but the insidious thing is the foot cramps that can happen at the slightest twitch. Its like my foot wants to fold up on itself :(
    Two days of rain has put the dust down, but has brought much cooler temperatures with it.
    Here is hoping for sunnier, feeling better days..

    I'm so sorry that you're still fighting that nasty virus, Angela. I surely hope that your dr. will get to the bottom of whatever's ailing you! emoticon And I mean soon! We need you to get back to your cheery, hilarious ole' self! emoticon emoticon

    I really hope the doctor can get to the bottom of this. Nothing worse than really wanting to get moving and do stuff, and not physically being able to. emoticon
