If it isn't one thing it is another

Friday, January 03, 2020

I'm so tired. I've been sick since November. It started out as a bad cold before Thanksgiving. I was visiting my daughter  but missed seeing the rest of the family as I was in bed sick. By the time I was able to drive home I had bronchitis and sinusitis. Started on an antibiotic but noticed my throat and lips were swelling so had to stop that one. Pretty scary! Started another one and finally finished up with that and seemed fine. Two days ago I woke up with an ear ache. My ear is now swollen and it has extended to my scalp, neck and side of face. My face looks like a sunburn on one side. Back to Urgent care for more antibiotics and ear drops. This is getting old. I am totally worn out.
I wanted to get some more packing up of my house so I can get it ready for sale but that's not happening. I am suppose to be flying in a week to visit my son but that might not happen if this ear thing doesn't clear up.

My exercise and diet just can't get going. No energy but I am pushing myself to get in a few more minutes of exercise but not enough to amount to much.
I know I can't throw in the towel but boy is it tempting. I hate being so down, it's just not me. Hopefully once this ear thing is better and I go on that trip to Texas I just might get the recharge I need. I go back to see the doctor next week. Fingers crossed this clears up and I get the ok!
Ps I've been sneezing all afternoon. Tell me it isn't another cold emoticon

    emoticon Feel better soon. Once your ear is feeling much better and you are definitely on the mend, I am sure you will feel so much better. I hope you can make the trip to Texas. That will be such a nice time, and hopefully, warmer weather for you, too. emoticon

    emoticon emoticon it is a big circle not feeling well means not eating well which makes it hard to get better. Positive thoughts for you my friend with hopes you can take your trip to Texas. emoticon

    I'm so sorry to hear that you're unwell again. I think that trip to Texas is what you really need to shake all this off. Hope you feel better soon. emoticon emoticon

    This sounds pretty familiar to me , except for the reaction. ( allergy ?) to the meds. My sister warned me it hangs on, in my case 5 weeks. If you can get to an ENT guy... maybe you could move on.

    UGH So sorry!! Seems once our immune system gets a bad hit, it just has such a hard time getting better!! I had that horrid cold a few weeks ago, last night felt something happening again. I said the same thing you are. I got up though it was 2 AM and drank some pomegranate juice for me, if I catch it immediately that can kick it to the curb!! BUT I'll have to do this continuously for a few weeks, or it'll win out.

    It DOES get tiring for sure!! I HOPE the antibiotics kick in so you can do the trip.
