Ugh.. sick...


So like most years I have lived up to the family tradition... I am quite sick... Last year it was my grnadfather with Pneumonia.. this year.... It's me.. I thought I had a cold... Turns out it was a sinus infection..

Now, like most guys I just "cowboy'd up" without going to the doctor cause I figured "eh, its just a cold"

Well now it spread into a Sinus, eye, ear, throat, and chest infection.... which also cause my bladder and urinary tract to get infected...

Happy new year!

So if I've seemed grumpy the last week or so.. there ya go... sorry guys.

Not... too sick... to type! Not... so sick... for water changes!

Take it easy there. Good Mods are hard to find.

Dude, I wish you well soon.

Take it easy - get a lot of rest (stop tinkering with that tank of yours!)
Eat well & most importantly, GO SEE A DOCTOR!

I wish you the best of luck getting rid of it Gareth. I used to get sinus infections often and they definately aren't fun.

Ugh. I had a sinus infection once before. I didn't let it get as bad as you did, but I did wait too long to see a doctor about it. I thought it was just a really bad headache that wouldn't go away. But yeah, I remember the thinking my head was going to pop every time I bent over thing too. Bleah. Do you have to do the saline rinse thing? (for the uninitiated, it's essentially inhaling a saline solution up through your nose... yeah, it's as fun as it sounds...)

Just the student nurse here talking...make sure you finish your antibiotics and get lots of rest...and keep well hydrated!

Thanks...get yourself to a doctor, they can give you things to make you better! LOL! My mom recently went through a big coughing cold, 6 weeks later she is finally not coughing anymore. Finally her dr gave her a puffer to stop the inflamation which helped stop the coughing which was just aggrevating her resp tract and making her cough.

Hope you two are feeling better soon!

Just got over a rather nasty head/chest cold that had me feeling like poopoo over the Christmas holiday and well into last week. Being sick, especially at this time of year, ain't no fun .

Hope you guys get better soon

Its that time of year. Most everyone I know has had some type of sickness. I'm lucky, I just had a scratchy throat and coughed up green stuff.

Hope you feel better! How about this one....Friday the 17th...graduation. I started feeling a bit scratchy during my hooding ceremony and then on the way to pick up my diploma the woman and I start to feel really groggy...we go to dinner and get coffee...go to bar...add bourbon to coffee to celebrate/wake up...by 10:30 we both have full-blown colds...snot, stuffed up, sneezing, coughing, etc.

Saturday the 18th...have to meet the Grandma and girlfriend's mom in Montgomery for "shopping"...augh...christmas shopping last minute!! Wanted to vomit and sleep.

Sunday...the two of us wallow in pain all day while the rest of her family is at church...we're both pretty much sick of drinking chicken noodle soup with a shot of nyquil.

Monday...back to Atlanta...go see my dad (he's a physician)...he give us cough medicine with codeine. Sleep. and sleep.....and sleep.

Wednesday...cold all gone except pnd (post nasal drip)...yuck.

Post christmas...both of us still snotty, but better....now that is a way to spend the hollidays!

Don't be surprised if you get sick too! I did visit today....lol. I came home to find out that my sister and her fiance are also sick now as well......

Time to go take some more codeinated cough medicine and go to bed.

Do feel better Gareth. I get sinus and upper respiratory tract infections all too often. I don't mess around though, I'm off to the doctor as soon as it starts to get close to bad, if I wait to long it all starts to affect my asthma and then I can't breathe....not good.....
