sick and tired of being sick....and tired

The new year has not been kind to me so far in terms of my health.  Nothing major, but I have had one thing after another go wrong since mid January.

  First, I got an oh-so-lovely sinus infection.   It started on a Wednesday and I made it through my work week but holy cow, I have not been that miserable in a long time.  The pressure alone was enough to drive me crazy and then adding onto that the congestion and then the drainage.....uck.  I went to urgent care but since my snot was clear and not green, they told me it was allergies.  I do not think so!  They gave me Flonase, which did absolutely jack crap for me.  Mucinex is what finally brought me some relief.

Got through that, the whole cold and sinus infection lasted about two weeks.  Then, last Wednesday I went to work with my tummy feeling a little queasy.  Again, I was a trooper and made it through the day but by the end of it, I was freezing cold and felt like I was going to lose it from either end at any time.  Got home, and didn't even make it to the toilet before I puked in the sink.  Last week was rough, Thursday morning Hubs got the same thing, and Thursday night baby boy got it.   We were a family swimming in germs.

Then, this morning, I woke up with a runny nose and cough.  SERIOUSLY?  I'm so tired of being sick.  I need a vacation to somewhere warm where I can nap in the sun and swim in the clear, warm ocean.  However, I don't see that happening anytime soon.  So, until then, I will continue to take my multivitamin and disinfect the house with Lysol.
