Sick Again

I'm not sure if I'm stressing myself out too much and effecting my immune system or what, but I'm sick again.

This time I've got an ear infection.

I finished my 10-day script of amoxicilian on Friday the 2nd. By Saturday my throat felt funny again. The sore throat stuck around, and on my drive home from work yesterday, my ear started hurting out of the blue.

By the time I got home, it worsened. And by the time I was seen in the immediate care facility, I thought my ear was going to explode from all the pressure.

So now I've got a 10-day script of augmentin as well as a decongestant (which I decided to hold off on taking after reading all the warnings (ie: do not drive or operate machinery until you know how you react to this medication, etc etc)) and things are actually breaking up on their own. I noticed bits coming up when I cough now (gross!) and I'm able to blow my nose and expell more. Oh yeah, totally gross because it's this fantastic yellow color with a very faint hint of green. Wooohoooo!!!! (gag)

So I'm home from work today....I think I may head downstairs for some soup and then back into bed I go. I just crawled out of bed where I was watching Poseidon (good movie, btw).

Hopefully I can kick this illness and feel well again soon!
