I am apologising in advance....I know I have been a bad blogger this week but this stinky cold has really got me down....after a week of dosing myself up on Neurofen and steamy inhalations every couple of hours....there was no sign of it leaving the premises....I suspected that my sinuses were infected....the green gunge from my nose and the pain in my face....ye gods even my teeth were sore....confirmed that....but last night was the last straw....I woke at 3.00am and never slept again......the pain was unbearable.....up several times during the night having yet another inhalation....I must have the cleanest face on the planet.....but only getting relief for a short time......so this morning drastic action was called for......called the doctor's surgery.
Now don't know about you...but I was thinking next appointment available.....Thursday next week and that is me all ready to do battle ...but no.....they have a cancellation at 9.30am....boy I haven't moved so quickly for years.....had to have a shower, wash my hair which had taken on the look of Marie Antoinette without the ringlets and just made it by the skin of my teeth.
Not my usual doc but I am so desperate I ain't caring.....lovely Irish lady and right away she said the magic words......"You have an infection in your sinuses and definitely need ANTIBIOTICS to clear that up"... So I am home.....have taken the magic pills and hopefully can now get my life back to some sort of normality after 4 weeks of misery. I so hate being ill and detest myself for being such a ratty old bag. It may take a few days for your happy nutty bloggy buddy to get back up to speed and then look out......challenges here I come. Catch up with you all later.......Hugs Kath xxxxxxx
