Almost dead - or just feeling that way
|Given that pollen levels have been seemingly off the charts here in Oklahoma for the past couple of weeks, I have been feeling some serious effects. My signs and symptoms first started about a week ago and they started to progress from there. It first started out as just the basic allergy stuff: sniffing, sneezing, and gummy eyes. From there it went to: the inability to breathe through my nose. Then it progressed to: can't stop coughing. The end result of this being bronchitis - for which I went to the doctor for the appropriate dosing of antibiotics before it turned into pneumonia (which was where it was headed). The worst part about this is that I had to use some of my sick days at work for actually being sick instead of just taking "mental health" days. |
I tell you all this so you know why I have not been blogging very much. I have not had the strength to do much more than sleep, cough, and "drink lots of fluids" - fluid intake of that level for me is generally only made of the caffeinated kind.
