Good Morning! Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! What did you do this weekend? My weekend was not exciting at all. I was very sick and spent most of my weekend either laying in bed or laying on the sofa. Not very exciting and not at all how I pictured my weekend to be. Sometimes that happens though and it’s okay. I’m just trying to get myself healthy and well so I can get over all of this stuff and move on! I’ll pick up where I left off on Friday.
On Friday, I felt absolutely miserable. My stomach was of course bothering me, my throat was on fire, and my nose was like a leaky faucet. It got to the point where I just couldn’t sit at work anymore. I felt like my head was in a fog and I just needed to get home. So I ended up leaving work early. I stuck it out as much as I possibly could. I just couldn’t sit at my desk anymore plus I didn’t want to infect anyone else with what I have. So I went home.
I stopped at Panera Bread on my way home because I wanted some soup and thought maybe that would make me feel better. I got chicken noodle soup in a bread bowl. That was a bad idea because I was even more sick the rest of the afternoon. I felt absolutely miserable and spent the rest of the day laying on the sofa until Mike got home from the gym. I decided to eat my tuna fish sandwich for dinner that I had brought to work for lunch. I’ll spare you the picture. It wasn’t anything exciting. After eating, I spent time with Mike for a little bit before I decided I needed to go to sleep. I went to bed really early on Friday night.
I woke up the next morning and could barely make it out of bed. I felt absolutely awful. I decided to go to the doctor to see what was actually going on. I was told that I have an upper respiratory infection and a really bad ear infection. So I was given antibiotics and sent on my way. The doctor also scared me a lot about Crohn’s disease and I really didn’t think that was necessary. All of this is a lot to take in and by her saying some things to me that she did, it just made it worse. It’s been a really rough two months that I have been going through dealing with my health. I’m trying my absolute hardest to get myself well. It just seems like nothing I do is working. It’s frustrating.
I filled my prescription, and picked up a few other medications and went home and tried to get myself hydrated. The doctor said if I got anymore dehydrated that I should run to the emergency room. Well I was definitely not going there so I drank as much as I possibly could and went to sleep. I ended up sleeping for a good three hours. We were supposed to hang out with one of Mike’s friends/groomsman and his fiancée but I couldn’t leave the house. So we cancelled on them. I felt bad but right now my health is more important.
Mike made us turkey burgers for dinner and sweet potato fries.
