I Need A Bubble!

14 Feb

It’s like my immune system has packed up and left the building (aka body) – not only did it move out it left bait for all the various germs out there letting them know there was an undefended body that they could roost in – stupid immune system! Stupider germs! I want my immune system back!

Let me refresh you on the health or lack there of that has been my life lately:

December 28th-ish – I got sick, I thought it was a simple flu/cold thing so I didn’t go to the doctor, I however was bed ridden for a couple days and felt like death

January 4th – first day back at work since xmas vacation, went to the doctors and found out my “simple cold” was bronchitis and I was instructed to go home and rest for the remainder of the week – that meant three days off work 😦

January 13th-ish – went back to the doctors cause my medicine was complete but my cough was still just as bad as ever and now I was wheezing and barely able to stay awake, got sent for chest x rays, diagnosed with pneumonia

January 20th-ish – went back to the doctor cause I was having such bad abdominal pain (I thought due to all the coughing) I wasn’t able to sleep and I didn’t seem to be getting better, was given an inhaler and generally patted on the head

By this point I felt like I was practically living in the doctors office so I decided screw it, my immune system will kick in and eradicate the remaining germs and I will be fine…I was wrong… 😦

Today – went to the doctor cause my cough never went away and seemed to be getting worse, I have abdominal pain everytime I eat or don’t eat (oh, and drink or don’t drink), tired all the time and a bunch of other symptoms…*rolls eyes* I have now been diagnosed with strep throat, possible mono, possible stomach bacterial infection, possible iron deficiency…I think I am forgetting something else but hey, that’s enough for now. lol 😛

So now I am on new drugs, sigh, told to stay off work for sure tomorrow and if possible wednesday as well (it won’t be possible, I am too poor to take two days off work this week) I have to stop taking my daily pantoloc for the next four days and then go get blood work done to check for the mono, stomach infection and iron deficiency, *rolls eyes again* – I feel like a walking germ, ugh.

Oh, and on top of all that, I am pms-ing (yeah, tmi I know) and I want chocolate more then anybody on the planet wants anything! I’d happily kill for chocolate right now…and not even feel guilty about it! 😉 The only problem is that everything I eat and drink causes abdominal pain so even if I decide to go over my points to eat some chocolate it’ll just make me feel  like crap and totally regret the snack…oh and I have to take the new pills on an empty stomach so the later I have a snack the later I have to stay awake until I can down a pill…I wonder if the ginger ale I am drinking counts as filling my stomach…huh, should’ve thought about that earlier. lol. 😛

So yeah, that is me and my medical story as of now. Fun huh? I have been working hard through all these symptoms to stick to my points and for the most part I have been doing ok…I find when I am sick I crave the oddest foods and the foods I crave don’t always work with what my body can handle food wise. Today, for example, I wanted bread, like at every moment of the day…that was it, bread. I had two dinner buns with my soup at dinner and really, if all I had was the dinner buns I’d have been perfectly content. lol. Oh, and of course the chocolate!

I did go over my points today by 1.5 points but I went over in a “it could have been a hell of a lot worse” kind of way…I had a 1 point weight watchers hot chocolate and an apple, I only had a  half point left at that point so really, I should have just skipped the apple and hot chocolate but I had to have something…pms, whatcha gonna do? I can’t fight my hormones as well when I am sick…I count it as a win though cause instead of eating a chocolate bar or something equally worse I had the apple and the hot chocolate…fruit is my friend…maybe that should be my mantra over the next couple days, help me keep the chocolate away from my mouth! lol 😀
