I have strep throat with a fever…poor me 😦 It’s making me feel quite miserable. I feel like I have been quite rundown over the past while (since December) with a cold, sore throat, strep throat, dehydration complications and other ailments. And before that it was the miscarriage that had complications and all that went with that. I’ve not been feeling well for a WHILE!
I was talking to someone who had their tonsils out and she highly recommends it and thinks I may want to look into it.
It’s not the greatest timing to be sick right now (although when is it ever) as I’ve been on holiday and have a lot of catching up to do. I was only back at work for 3 days and have now taken a few days off sick. Yikes!
Stupidly I also went to the dentist as I had a scheduled appointment; and
a) they were going to fine me $100 if I cancelled even if I had strep throat and
b)I just wanted to get it over with and thought I’d maximize my time away from work by going so I wouldn’t have to take MORE time off later to go to the dentist.
What a giant, colossal mistake. Also, another mistake? Laughing gas. Disgusting! I don’t know why I didn’t opt for conscious sedation like the last time I was unfortunate enough to have a cavity. I should know my limits and work within them rather than working to other people’s expectations. See, that was very easy to type. Not so easy to do!!
My appetite seems to have almost disappeared which is uncomfortable when I take the antibiotics and pain meds. My stomach is hurting and I feel on the verge of vomiting most of the time that I delay taking Tylenol and then my fever rockets back up and my throat hurts and wakes me up. It’s a vicious circle.
On a brighter note it’s a long weekend this weekend and I am going to do my utmost to try and get better. Rest, relax, try and eat and healthy things at that and maybe even garden if I can find the energy.
In the back of my mind is the count down to phone the fertility clinic and undertake the next round of trying. It’s stressing me out. I don’t know how to talk about it or even how to get my feelings out about it. I’m not going to lie, I’m having difficulty coping with everything. How do you all manage?
