The chocolate might have brought my blood counts up, but this virus is still kicking my ass!!! Over 6 weeks this virus/sinus infection has been beating me down and this week it got a bit tougher. It has been getting the point where I can barely breathe/swallow due to mucus feeling like it is coating the back 0f my throat and whole sinuses. It feels like the gunk farmers pull out of lambs/calves mouths when they have just been born!
I had still been getting out and about though for a bit each day, nothing hugely taxing. Lovely day out to the gardens at Burghley park with Smells and K admiring the sculptures and getting confused in the mirror maze.
Sunday I went for a lovely walk with my mum and brother round Wadenhoe.
Although in the end I decided to ruin it by spewing my guts up in the car park of a nice little tea room we stopped in. Pretty sure the other customers loved the sound effects too as I only made it maybe 50 metres from where they were sitting!! Ha ha!! The rest of the day resulted in me purging my body of all contents from both ends! I will spare you the details, but I’m sure everyone will imagine the mess this can create!!
The thought pattern is it was a build up of mucus that made me ill…… but by the next morning things had settled down considerably, although I stuck to crackers and rice for the next two days.
The rest of the week has been spent crashed out on the couch, sleeping ridiculous amounts (between 12 – 15 hours a night), and only leaving the house for a hospital appointment until today.
Today I pushed myself to go to a informal free motion embroidery workshop with Kim from the handmade in Peterborough (HiP). Had great fun playing with sewing machines and being creative with a few fellow crafters. Glad I made teh effort to go, but boy am I tired now. After I was even too tired to browse hobbycraft properly whilst my mum picked up a few bits, I just sat on one of the shelfs, but it was worth it. Has brought a bit of a spark back into me!
Back on a second course of antibiotics….. see if these will help me shift it fully. Kings on tuesday to see what they think…. here’s hoping that by then I will be a new girl with clear sinus’s and full hearing!!
