You know you sound like crap when....

  1. As some of you know I am fighting another round of sinusitis paired with bronchitis. My voice is almost gone. (Which some people would consider a blessing I suppose). Had my kid into the doc yesterday for a well kid check-up. The nurses said I sounded like I needed seen. I thought I would just try and tough if out. I hate taking antibiotics if I don't need them. Did get some cough syrup with codeine yesterday. Ended up calling in sick again today. Went to the doctor's office where the NP who was seeing me told me the nurses were talking about me. The NP said the one nurse who took my call said I sounded bad and the nurse that saw me yesterday with my kid said I sounded bad yesterday. So I guess that maybe I needed to be seen. (By the way starting ATB today and decongestant). Just love be the topic of discussion for the office!!

    Hope you get better REAL SOON. I know what you
    mean with the antibiotics, I hate them too. Also, I'm sure they were only saying NICE things about you at work.

    My hubby had a cold over the weekend so he thought he shouldn't be alone in his misery. The only problem is my colds always turn into sinusitis and/or bronchitis. My sinuses are so plugged that the area above my eye hurts to the point it gets numb for a few moments. My sense of balance isn't the greatest today either. :spin:

    Thanks for all the well wishes. The only good thing that has come out of this is that I can play on here all day.

    One thing I learned about sinus infections is they don't go away without a antibiotic only get worse. Hope you feel better soon, it doesn't sound like you are getting much rest and you do need to. Hope you feel better soon. By the way, my italian grandmother Nonni always said if we eat enough garlic we will never be sick, hmmmmmmm, she was quite healthy for a long long time.

    Probably because no one would get close to you.......

    I have chronic sinusitis so it is hard to know when I need an antibiotic. This time though it didn't take an Einstein to figure it out. Hopefully the ATB will start to kick in and I will feel better soon. Thanks for the well wishes.
