I wound up going to the health clinic today for help. I've been getting pain in my chest like I did the last time I got sick like this back in March. That time, I wound up having such bad pain, I thought I was going to have to go to the ER. I wasn't at that point yet, this time, but I have no patience for the chest pain (and it also freaks me out a lil bit), so I figured going to the doctor sooner rather than later was the best plan.
I have that bacterial infection in my lungs again.
I also have infected shit in my sinuses.
And an ear infection, to boot! (Which is weird to me...I'm thirty-goddam-eight! I shouldn't be getting ear infections anymore, right???)
So they prescribed antibiotics AND a steroid. I don't know what the combo of those two things do that the one antibiotic can't do on its own, but there must be a reason for it. I also have to start using a nasal spray to help me with my allergies, because that's what's causing me to get sick so often, apparently.
I didn't know I was having a problem with allergies, but ok!
Anyway, life is boring around here for the time being. I can't go to the gym, and I have barely been able to get out to work, so I have no stories. Nothing fun is happening with me.
Maybe next week.
I might take comparison pics from before I take the steroids, and after I take them, so we can laugh at how puffy I get.
Or I can cross my fingers and hope that the puffiness doesn't happen...is that even possible? I dunno.
Anyway...happy Friday. Have a good weekend!
