I am Sickth

I don't know how to spell what I sound like when I say the word "sick".

All I know is that if you are one of those people who don't get sinus infections - I really don't like you. I don't. I really don't.

That means I don't like my boyfriend. I also don't like him because he doesn't need glasses (and he's 40). I've had glasses since forever. I am sure there are other reasons why....don't get me wrong - I love him alot - but puh-leeze. You don't get sinus infections and don't need glasses???

Anyhow, back to this sinus infection. Apparantly I am not the only one who is miserable. Not that I want others to feel this pain, but dammit all.

My face is puffy. I can 't breathe out of my nose. My teeth hurt. I have a fever. I have absolutely nothing by way of taste buds. My eyes tear up for no reason.

Last year at this time, I was just returning from Iraq - I got the exact same crud. We blamed it on a combo of the dust/dirt/sand I was breathing for a month and the pollen here. Now I know it's all the damn pollen. I am sure if I kept a chart of this - I'd have it every time this time of year.

So, if you are one of those who don't suffer from this, lucky you.

I still don't like you. At all. Really, I don't.


Now I am convinced I may be dying. Not only is the pain bad, etc etc, but this is from some medical website

"If a person experiences mild personality changes, headache, altered consciousness, visual problems, or seizures, infection may have spread to the brain. Coma and even death may follow."
Mark was just commenting how my personality changes when I am sick. I do have a headache. not sure what altered consciousness is. Visual problems - well I can't see no matter what so that one is out the window. And seizures - not yet. Crap. If I die, I am going to be pissed.

There is little worse than the dreaded sinus infection that creeps into your jaw! I actually went to my dentist convinced my entire bottom row of teeth were rotting out, based on the pain I was experiencing. He had a good laugh at my expense, and sent me to my doctor!

Hope you feel better soon!
Thanks for the comments on my post!
