Turning the corner on the plague

The last week (nearly two) have not been exactly what I had in mind. I had wood burning pizza class plans, drinks and dinners with friends, work to do and a quick work trip to do too.

The last thing still happened but overall, I have lost almost two weeks to (what I now refer to it as) the plague.

Let’s have a quick recap. The plague gave me all of the following in the last nearly two weeks:

  • Viral infection
  • Bacterial infection
  • Ear infection (no shit)
  • Pink eye (in BOTH eyes)
  • Congestion
  • Cough
  • Headaches
  • 101 fever
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • No appetite
  • Nausea

Yep, yep sounds like fun right??

Well, two doctor visits and multiple generic prescription meds later, I am finally turning the corner (I hope).

Seriously, it’s been a while since a sickness kicked my ass like this and I hope it doesn’t happen again soon.

But I rallied like a champ for my birthday. Priorities.

How is everyone else doing?

    That sounds awful! I hope this means you won’t get ill any more for years to come, you had it all in one go. And happy birthday!

    bah that sounds awful, hope you are feeling better soon friend!!

  4. Good lord! Your immune system really was down for the count. Fingers crossed it’s only improving from here!

  5. Wow. Go big or go home, right? I guess in this case go big AND go home and sleep for a while. Glad you’re turning the corner finally.

  6. Oh holy! That sounds miserable. I probably would have begged to be admitted to the hospital and put on a constant antibiotic drip! Hope you are fully recovered…now spill the deets on the bday bash rally!
