On the road to recovery....

No matter how sick I get...I still have to look presentable....I ended up leaving work early Friday, feeling like I was at death's door...self medicated through out the evening and Saturday, drug myself out of bed, because I had a hair appointment....I think I scared the crap out of my hairdresser, because she was insistent I reschedule and go home and go back to bed..but, I toughed it out...can't go without the highlights...I did start to feel a little better Saturday, the hubby and I loaded up the kids and went out for dinner...but, through out the night Saturday night, I took a turn for the worse and Sunday morning, Hubby had me at the local Urgent Care clinic...diagnosis....Acute Bacterial Sinus Infection...prescription of Augmentin, 850 mg, only 3 pills taken and I am on the road to recovery...Thank Goodness!

I have never been so sick in my life! I don't want to get that sick again. Worse cold I have ever had, then it turns into a sinus infection....even though I was sick...I still managed to get the Christmas tree up....inside decorations outside this year, I am afraid...there is only 11 days left until Christmas, I will be glad when it is over. I still have some shopping to do, hope to have it all wrapped and under the tree by this weekend.

Have a great week everyone!!!!

Hi. Sinus infections can pretty much take over your life. I know this all too well ....
Question for you - have you ever tried a neti pot? I used to get recurring sinus infections but since I started using neti I don't get them. Takes some getting used to but def worth it.
If things don't get better don't wait, go see a doc. Then if it's a chronic sinus infection make sure you discuss all the options. It used to be sinus surgery was the only one but now there are less invasive ones like balloon sinuplasty.
Hope you feel better.
