Default Sick and tired of being sick

Just got back from the doctor. I did ask 4 times but all I remember after I asked what I had she said"Acute something" and yes it is contagious<SP?> They gave me a mega shot in the behind and I am once again on antibiotics for a period of time.I can barely talk or swallow..I never experienced such pain.

On top of this our daughter is coming home tomorrow and we have to drive to Tampa to get her. Which will take 1 1/2 hr to get there. But we have some positive answers from the state for her health insurance and such things. Good thing! She should be able to be on it in 10 days or so. Okay I am finished venting and will crawl back in my bed......Oh and they are giving her a free crib too.... blessings are all around us

Sorry you're not feeling well, Sue. And glad to hear your daughter is coming home! Hopefully tho you will not be making that drive, I'm sure it would only prolonge your illness, also I'm sure you don't want to give something to miserable to her....

Sounds like when I had strep throat, very contagious and very miserable...can't even enjoy yukky old tv when you feel like that...

Take care!

Well Sue I can imagine that you are sick of being sick. Have you ever thought about going to another Dr. or have you done that ?
I am blessed that I am never sick toi toi toi except for a cold now and then, but that could change tomorrow. Just never know.
I know you are glad your daughter is coming home, don't give her what you have .
Stay at arms lenght
Hope you feel better soon Auguste

Sue,
So sorry to read of your pain. If it was anything like what my better half has suffered over the past 3 or 4 days it must be awful . Both Rollerdonna and myself wish you a speedy recovery.

I'm glad you got to the doctor today, and I hope the shot he gave you will help to speed along your recovery. I know having your daughter come home is a big event, but take care of yourself and try not to give her what you have.

Phyll

Forget those quack doctors Sue, I have my own cure I will send you.

You mix it up at home and in a few days you will feel much better. It's 1 part Domino's pepperoni and 2 parts Michelob. Take 3 times per day. Rolaids for dessert.

Hope you feel better soon girl.

Regards,
Thomas

Sue,
Take it easy and maybe you can rest in the car. Hopefully, someone else is driving. Then when you get home, rest some more.

you might consider purchasing a 'back pillow" that you can use while driving in the car that will take the pressure off your lower area (great for airplane rides also)..
