Hi all! Wow, it took me forever to catch up just on thread 24! Well, I've been up and down with this flu for the last 2 weeks (starting week 3 today) - but no where near as bad as some of you!!! WOW! Coughing up blood Yalinda?! Yikes!? Get in to see the doctor NOW! El, I'm sorry to hear you have to go through the TB treatment....hang in there, it sounds like you are coming to terms with it and not as worried about everyone else as you were, but I know it's hard!
Well, though the house plumbing is fixed (YEAH!) and my plumbing is still on the fritz, but better - our house is nowhere near back in order......everything has been on hold while I've been sick (not to mention we haven't gotten our carpet replaced yet to put the rooms back together) and it's just not helping me to look at this mess! Errrgh!
Nite all. Take care. I hope everyone starts feeling better soon!***
Yeah, the flu did me in....but it seemed like such a mild case! My joints are really starting to feel the effects of it and I'm having some bad trouble with my feet now among other areas. Last year, I had the flu shot on Jan 3rd and was in bed by the 17th and couldn't hear for almost 6 weeks from a massive ear infection! Needless to say, I passed on it this year!
Erin, did you finally get some sleep?
How's everyone doing?
Erin, yes, I think you should seriously consider getting a lawyer....since you have the time (sigh!), I would start calling around and find one you like who will work in your favor (not take money right now and won't take 40%+ of anything you get.)
El, I'm sorry you are so sick. One thing I'm finding out about meds in general - is if the meds say 'take with food' or 'take with plenty of water' - that will help some, and they MEAN PLENTY of water! If you are concerned about your liver, I would call and talk to your doctor now. The extreme fatigue and nausea can be caused by that and you don't want it to get any worse than it needs to.
I'm doing better - but my cough suddenly showed up again yesterday. I had 3 days off and now I'm hacking away again. My joints have been bothering me....the worst is my feet.....I can't walk or function when they act up like they've been trying. I'm supposed to go on my son's field trip today with him and I'm worried how I'll be able to hold up.
Hi everyone! I hope you are all feeling better! I'm going through a flare, or I'm coming down with something AWFUL! My teeth hurt like they are loose and I was punched in both jaws, my feet hurt, my hands ache, and I have sludge in my throat. What gives? I thought it was allergies, but I'm getting worse every day. I'm getting blood work tomorrow, I hope my liver enzymes aren't up!
Sorry to whine. I just needed to get that off my chest.
Did anyone do 'fun' stuff last weekend for St. Patrick's day?
