Under The Weather

In case your your wondering, I’m still here. I just haven’t felt like blogging in a while. 
This is the first time in a week that I have been able to keep my eyes open after 8pm. I have had an awful crud.

It started as a runny nose and sore throat. I figured it was allergies since I suffer from those all year round. So I took my Allegra D to clear it up.
The next day it was not cleared up and in fact, I felt worst. I figured then that I have caught at cold. The first cold I have had in four years.

As the week went on, each day I kept feeling worst. I could have sworn I had the Covid virus, but I never had a fever or lost my senses. I continued going to work, wearing my mask and keeping my distance from others just in case. 

After four days of not getting any better, I finally called into work late and took a home covid test. It came back negative so I called the doctor and made an appointment to see him. I needed some relief. I was miserable. I had all the symptoms of the flu. 

The doctor diagnosed me with a sinus infection, gave me a steroid shot to make me feel instant relief and then wrote me a prescription for an antibiotic.

It’s been three days since my diagnosis and being on the meds. I feel better but still have a cough as it has all settled in my chest. I have not missed a days work but it’s been a rough road. I feel like I could have broke a rib coughing so much. Yep I’m sore but I am glad that I’m finally feeling better and can get back to normal. I have cookies to make next weekend and want to make sure I’m free of any sicknesses. 

For the record: My husband is fine and has not caught anything. 

Did you know?
You are not contagious unless your running a fever.
You can not catch a cold by going outside in the cold. 
A cold is a virus and you pick it up by germs or particles in the air. 
Clear mucus is a sign of allergies.
Yellow or green mucus is a sign of a cold or infection. 
Got a tickle in your throat that keeps you coughing? Just eat a spoon of peanut butter or honey.

On a good note: I have most of my Christmas shopping done. 
Are you ready for Christmas?

    I knew most of your facts. Didn't know that you weren't contagious unless you had a fever. That's new to me. Also didn't know about the peanut butter! :)
