Hi family-
 
I could use some prayer and positive vibes. its warm and sunny here in Australia and i still have over 2 weeks of holidays left, but i have just come back from a big weekend of partying and went to the doctor yesterday morning. He said my chronic sinusitis is in a major flare up and that i have pharyngitis as well (sore, gunky throat, hard to swallow) 1 ruptured ear drum that hurts like hell and a bronchial chest infection. i spent $140 dollars on medications yesterday. i cant enjoy my holidays cos i feel like rubbish and to be honest im so fed up with this ridiculous cycle of chronic illness. i know i should be used to it but im not a happy girl right now. im coughing so hard im coughing up blood from vessels that have ruptured in my throat. YUK. shakehead
 
i will do my best to be around- love to you all,

Ah Maz.  I am sooooo sorry to see you are sicker again.  A lot of us live with chronic illness on a daily basis and know how frustrating it is (especially when we are on vacation and want nothing more than to feel "normal" and "healthy" for that vacation).  I'm sending you oodles of hugs and lots of prayers that you are soon feeling so much better and are able to enjoy some of your vacation.

There are times when life just plain stinks. I understand partly how you feel as when I smoked many years ago I would be plagued with nasty sore throats and fevers.  I had my tonsils remove when I was 5  so it was never that. ( NO I did not smok at 5 redface ) I’m not a very good sick patient. I sulk, a little. I’m a touch pathetic.  You have more reason to be ticked off at this chronic illness then I do to moan about a little headache.

Do you have a neti pot?

It is very important to check with your physician before beginning neti pot or the company’s nasal rinse, which I prefer. They also sell packets with the ingredients in it, so no thinking…duh!

Just an idea and I am sure you know more about the tretments for your illness then I do.
 
I pray that you will feel better soon.  You are always toughing out some awful nasty illness, I am so sorry my friend.  Life is not always fair.
 
Many healing hugs to you.

Thankyou ALL so much. it hurts to breathe. it hurts to swallow. it hurts to move my head/neck as my glands are like melons. my face is a map of sinus related pain. i cant quit coughing.

I geel so guilty for getting on here and having a whinge when everyone here is battling their own problems- im just in that much discomfort and pain and it gets me down when im sick day after day.

 i DID have a great weekend despite being sick, and for that i am grateful- a 48hr beach party and dinner at a fancy restaurant, and my agoraphobia didnt stop me (i had to drive 4hrs north- out of comfort zone) but once there, i enjoyed myself immensely. ruptured my eardrum about 2am sunday morning from SNEEZING too hard- thats how sensitive all the pressure in my head is. it just tore a huge hole. the pain is excruciating.

I will stop sooking now because when i think back to my nursing days and the cancer patients i cared for, my problems seem insignificant.

it just hurts me. i feel like life passed me by a long time ago.

and to top it off, i have a gastro bug- a very upset tummy indeed.

Awww my sweet Maz, sorry to hear you are feeling so rotten. You can definetly count on some healing prayers going up for you, since you were so helpful with me last week. Maybe I gave you my sinusitis:), I sure hope not. Anyways try to rest and take your meds, and will be praying you are feeling better really soon. REST< REST < REST <

Gentle hugs,

Lovely Maz,

Bummer my friend. The heat won't be helping this. Do you have a humidifier? I know it sounds crazy to have steam happening right now but it always helps me with nasal congestion. Failing that you could stand on Oxford street and get humidity up your nose for free turn smilewinkgrin Ok I'm being silly..sorry about that.

Please feel free to vent..gastro and sinus.. shakehead

I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy. Keep up with fluids..I find ginger ale soothing for nausea and sore throat. Please feel free to email me if you want to chat..just stay out of the water..the sharks are going nuts or what??

Hugs,

Meg

Sheesh...

Man, they got a saying for this type of thing.... I believe it is... "When it rains, it pours."

I hate it when problems pile up like that... especially health problems... Blegh. Get well soon. :)
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

we are having a bit of a heatwave here in sunny australia- and im already battling the sinus/bronchitis/pharyngitis combo with a dash of gastro- and now the heat is torturing my fibro. i cant even get comfy in bed cry . i ache and ache. when will it end? it wont.

 

when i had my 28th bday last year, in the lead up i was really anxious and in a foul mood- i couldnt work out why. then the night before my bday i realised that both my mental illness and my chronic physical illnesses were diagnosed at 14- meaning i had spent HALF of my life being chronically ill and emotionally fragile. it makes sense now.

 

Im over it! im tired of it! so much of my teen years were lost in the drama of doctors, Pdocs, hospitals, surgeries, day procedures- fighting every day to just get out of bed. my body betrayed me.

I believe in God and i trust Him. I have to believe there is a bigger picture, that there is some purpose for all of this.

Thanks for the ongoing support, i need it right now. Its past my bedtime- i go try and snooze now smurf

awww, maz. :(

i am so sorry you're feeling so bad. i know how hard it is to struggle with fibro in the heat (and cold..and damp..doesn't really matter what it's like outside, does it??) and i too have found that often the best thing to do is to just give it to God and let Him sort things out for us. i will say a prayer that He brings you some comfort and rest while you get better.

Dear Maz,

I am really ticked off now and I am going to swear and shake my fist at the devil that is making you so ill.  It is not fair and I want my friend to feel better.............

I miss our crazy conversations so now I am having to do both parts, yours and mine. 

Tell your Doctor to make you better or a bunch of  us will be down on a carpet to whisk you off to the land of no pain or worries.

My prayers for you and you have every right to feel down when you are so sick.

Take care.

Kitt
