A short update, I have been sick for 2 weeks now, maybe more. I am not getting any better, in fact I have progressively been getting worse with each day. This is torture.
Last week Bruiser, Brody and I went to the Dr. I was certain there was some ear infections, maybe a sinus infection, something. She said we were all just fine. We had colds and we had to let it run its course. A week later and our status is: Bruiser, ok but still icky in the morning, clears up around 10am, sporadic cough at night. Brody, got better and has now come down with a teething cold, you know the one, nose turned to faucet with constant snot flow, crabby, cranky, no fever, and a slight cough, most likely from post nasal drip, will be fine once the tooth pops through. Then there is me. Constant coughing, metal taste in mouth, pressure in ears and face, daily headache, crabby, bitchy, sinuses and nose alternate between runny and completely stuffed resembling concrete in my nose. I rotate between hot and cold, no happy median. I have sporadic body aches. My appetite sucks! Overall I feel like shit and am tired as hell! Last night I didn’t get much sleep because all I did was cough and toss and turn in pain from all the coughing! That being said, I am going BACK to the Dr. this afternoon and I am hoping to get some anti-biotics and a diagnosis. I don’t have a medical degree but this shit is an infection of some sort!
