Sinus City, as in real people sick since last Thursday, which was also my birthday.
I'm talking sick in the head - As in head so clogged I can barely hear and coughing so much from the dreaded post nasal drip that the back of my head aches from my brain continually rattling in my skull.
I think I pulled a muscle in my lower abdomen from coughing and every time I try and rest, my head needs to be propped up on a 90 degree angle.
If it’s not chicken matzo ball soup with sriratcha or popsicles, I don’t want to eat it, and the antibiotic I was put on last Tuesday doesn’t seem to be doing much of anything
All I want to do is sleep and I’m tired of feeling this way.
Up until 2008, I never suffered from allergies or sinus infections and this Spring has been the absolute worst by far. I’ve become a person who constantly carries tissues in her handbag, keeps a box of tissues in her car and is generally miserable unless she has antihistamines at her disposal at all times - and even then I still feel and sound like crap.
Luckily, the laryngitis that arrived on Thursday, departed this morning, but my normal voice has not returned. Basically I sound like a man, baby.
Or as various family members have told me: I sound like Brenda Vaccaro in those tampon commercials from the 1980s. LOVELY.
Sidebar: My siblings, cousins and I watched way too much television when we were kids.
Appointment with an ENT Thursday morning and hoping that I will be better by then.
So far, diabetes has played nice - Actually, diabetes has been a walk in the park compared to whatever war that has erupted and continues to reek havoc with my sinuses.
Today I'm trying to catch up on everything I missed in my Sinus City haze and come hell or high water, I will be blogging in full swing tomorrow - But wanted to update you regarding my lack of posts, lack of energy and being lost in Sinus City.
