Sick

I have been battling being sick for a while now - not the nausea sick that my good friend Givyna de Elba is battling because of Thingamababy - but it is enough to make a grown man cry. It started with an ear infection and a sinus infection that turned into of course cellulitis. That of course meant TWO rounds of hefty antibiotics, and pain meds that did nothing. It also meant a face that was so swollen people weren't sure if they should laugh or cry when they saw me. 

The thing is that with being sick like this you get sick of it. Nothing makes it better and you do nothing but feel more and more tired. Plus no matter what you do, you can't seem to make yourself feel better. 

I'm ready to stab the next doctor I see if he can't give me a straight answer as to what is going on. 

Especially since all of my blood work comes back fine, the scans come up with nothing, yet there are globs of green pus and goo oozing out my ears and nose. 

So I am about ready to cut out everything that isn't a natural food and start from square one. Sure it will suck, sure it will be time consuming and hard to stick to, but if I can finally not feel sick or tired and stay awake past 5pm...it will be worth the work.

OH girl. That's gotta make your crazy!! I'm prone to the nose and ear stuff, too and can really really empathize. :(

That's awful! I'm so sorry again! You've had a tough time of it. Do we blame the WEATHERPOCALYPSE? Get well soon. Stab some doctors.

Hope you get to feeling better soon. Being sick sucks.
