I had planned on a different post today…one filled with favorite photos and other kinds of goodness. However, I feel like I’ve been run over by a bus and I have lost my ability to think. I have a sinus infection. Yup…I’m super excited about it.
On Saturday afternoon, after spending the entire day outdoors with J, I went to get a mani/pedi. The whole time I was outside, I had no allergy issues at all. The minute I walked into the nail place…bam, stuffy nose and sneezing. I sat there like that for two hours while they fixed my dry feet and ragged cuticles and then I went home. I started to feel better when I got home, so J and I started watching a movie. A few minutes in…bam, stuffy nose and sneezing. I took some Sudafed, hoping it would stop, but no such luck. What it did do was make me tired…so much for non-drowsy.
So I was sitting there, fighting sleep because I knew if I fell asleep congested like that I would end up getting a sinus infection. I tried so hard, but man was that movie boring…I don’t even remember what we were watching! So off to bed I went.
I woke up at 3 AM with a horrible headache and completely unable to breathe. I tried blowing my nose and when that was unsuccessful, I knew it was all over! Infection. Dammit.
I called the doctor, who is used to this with me. She called in a prescription for me, which I started taking right away. J and I had to go to his mom’s yesterday for her surprise birthday party, so I took a shower and felt much better. We headed off to the party and by the time we got there I felt like crap. I suffered through for a few hours, but then we had to leave. I felt bad since I had been looking forward to this party for a month.
We got home and I didn’t feel any better. Trying to sleep without breathing isn’t an easy thing to do. I tried laying in bed but the dogs were laying on me so I got hot. Then I tried laying in the recliner, but it wouldn’t stay reclined. Then I went to the guest room and I finally ended up falling asleep for about 20 minutes as a time. It wasn’t really restful and I got up feeling worse than when I went to bed.
There was an accident on the highway this morning so the bus took an extra 40 minutes to get to the city. Feeling crappy and being trapped on the bus don’t mix well for me. Which leaves me at right now…I am at work because tomorrow is the deadline for estimated tax payments and I have piles of things to finish. I feel like hell. I’m starving and the deli is taking like an hour delivering my breakfast. I just want to go home and bury my head under the covers. So I’m going to get some things done and try to get the hell out of here early. I have a feeling that tomorrow I’ll be posting from home.
Hope everyone’s Monday is going better than mine!
