Someone End This Misery . . .

I have so much to do, so much to say, so many thoughts running through my head; yet, I cannot function. This has been one of the hardest weeks of my life so far. Both kids are sick and my sickness turned into a beloved sinus infection, confirmed today at the doctor. For those of you that have never been lucky enough (not!) to experience an infection behind your face, here is a brief description of its horrors:

- My face is visablly swollen - went to school this morning and some said, "Are you okay? Your face looks really swollen." Thanks! Yes, I know and I feel like shit - have a nice day!

- It is almost physically impossible to eat or smile b/c of the pressure in my face and my ears.

- I have no appetite - this could be a good thing except I need to eat to make milk for my baby; therefore, I am forcing myself to eat.

- I can't lay flat b/c I will cough to death and choke on the drainage.

- I can't hear - this could be a good thing with children...

- This list of my misery could go on, but I will not bore you!

All I want is to feel better, so I can get back to my life. Hubby comes home in two days; hopefully, I will be able to rest a little more then. If I am lucky, the medicine will have kicked in and I will be able to smile at him and love on him a little!

"Health is not valued till sickness comes." - Dr. Thomas Fuller, British physician (1654 - 1734)

Wow, you are SO not in good shape. Then again I guess you knew that. Hope you are feeling better soon.

sounds like you have the perfect storm going on over there. I remember my Ex's biggest frustration with being a teacher was not being able to call in sick, like most, since you don't get sick just during the vacations.

Hope you are feeling better soon! Sinus infections suck - did you get the really good pills to make it go away?

Sinus infections are indeed terrible and throw in two sick kids? Hope your week has turned around and you're feeling better!
