Sneezing and headache and watery eyes, oh my!

The hubby and I tid-10042902ook the kids to the Hattiesburg Zoo today even though I really didn’t feel like going. My sinuses/allergies have declared war on me and right now, they’re winning. I am hoping to go to the dr tomorrow and gets some meds and/or a shot to help me defeat this pesky mess.  I never knew it was possible for one side of my nose to be stopped up while the other side poured like a faucet. The constant watering eyes and sneezing isn’t fun either.  Oh and let’s not forget the pressure inside my head that feels like someone is tightening a vice.  I have no clue if I have a fever or not because my children seemed to have misplaced the thermometer.  So all I have to go on is my husband feeling my forehead and saying “Hmmm, you feel a little warm.”

So I had to nicely let my boss know that I wouldn’t be able to watch her baby tomorrow so that I could go to the doctor.  I just don’t think that with the way I feel that I would be able to adequately be able to care for her kid.  I hate taking off, but sometimes it’s needed. And I’m really at the point in this job where I’m contemplating on quitting right before Christmas break anyway.  That’s a whole other post that may get written later.  But that has nothing to do with me taking tomorrow off. I feel like poo so therefore I’m taking off to go get meds so I can work the rest of the week and not feel like I’m about to fall over.

I get what I call the “sinus crud” about once a year. Last year I had it so bad that I had fever and chills. I almost thought I had the flu.  I figured it wasn’t the flu though because it only lasted for a few days. So I’m trying to get some meds before it gets to that point this year.  I really hope that the nurse practitioner actually does her job though and gives me something that works instead of just throwing amoxicillan at me.  Ok, she doesn’t literally throw it, but she writes that prescription for every kind of illness. And as much as I hate shots, maybe I’ll convince her to give me one to help encourage my sinuses/allergies to chill out for awhile.

  1. I would much rather have a shot if it will knock out the crud. But so much of the time with me it just has to run its course regardless.
    Hope you feel better soon. You said y’all went to the Hattiesburg zoo. I’m from Mississippi and have a few friends in Hattiesburg.

  2. Oh yes, we have been battling this too. So far just the hubby and my boy twin got a mild case. My girl twin and I have been tired and a little sniffly but nothing major!

  3. I can understand completely! My fiance and I have been suffering with this season’s allergies for longer this year and more difficulties than ever, too! It has been so bad that we both are too ill to feel like going outside, no less just taking care of everyday issues. I feel for you… Hope it ends soon! PS: … And we’re in SW FL, too. lol
