It’s Saturday and I have spent almost the entire day in bed.
I felt a sore throat coming on yesterday, but I was trying fight it/pretend it wasn’t there.
See, when I get sick, I tend to get sicker than everyone else. While a normal person can get a cold and be sick for a week, or even less, I will get a cold and it will persist for three weeks to a month, if not more.
That’s always how it’s been.
I’ve been sharing on here a few posts about the struggles I’ve been dealing with in respect to my health. In spite of eating healthy-healthy-healthy (it needs to warrant three healthy’s), in spite of exercising, in spite of taking my vitamins, in spite of doing everything the doctor has told me to do, I just haven’t been getting better.
Well today, I woke up worse Way worse.
I now have an ear infection in both ears and I think I’m getting a throat infection too. There’s so much pressure in my head that standing upright is difficult for me. Oh my god, I don’t want to be dealing with this right now. And I realize that I am whining, but honestly, I am just so sick and tired of being sick and tired.
I really do wonder what it’s like to feel 100 percent. I wonder what it’s like to not have to worry about lingering symptoms. I wonder what it’s like to just be healthy.
I’m taking all of the steps. I’ve done everything every doctor, my mom, my friends, and people on here have suggested for me and it just isn’t working. Okay, that sounds real dramatic. I’m sorry for whining. I’m like that dude from the Nyquil commercial when I am sick. #ManCold (Sorry if you’ve never seen that commercial, you won’t understand that comment)
I have an appointment with the Allergist on Monday. As a result, I’m not supposed to be taking drugs. So it looks like I’m attempting to fight this one all on my own.
Okay, whining over for now. I think I’ll go take a nap. Or something or other.
