I've been feeling so yucky lately. Today had to be the worst though! All I wanted to do was sleep. In the back of my mind, I kept thinking "This is the same feeling of exhaustion that I have only ever had during weeks 6-12 of being pregnant." I had that in the back of my mind. Along with the thought that if I could really be pregnant all of the crazy meds that I've been taking to make me better would be really bad!
I decided that I should just take a test to make sure. At least I wouldn't have to wonder.
No dice, one line....no baby. Not a big deal since we're not looking to get pregnant just yet, but a little disappointing too.
After finishing up the test. I went to the Walgreen's Take Care Clinic. That seriously took forever! They ask a million questions! Plus, with my high blood pressure, having missed the am dose (because I slept all morning) and the night before dose (because I was asleep before it was time to take my meds) I just knew my pressure would be high. Oh yeah....and taking the meds that were kind of working to make me feel better vs. the ones that I'm "allowed" to take because of my hypertension.
It just annoys me that it is the same song and dance every time. The first bp reading is 160/90....and here we go!! NOW they decide that my blood pressure is more important than whatever other symptoms I came in for. We take my blood pressure two more times, I get all of the lectures, and all of the stuff about following up with a doctor...my dosage is so high blah, blah, blah! I get that this isn't something to mess with. I had a very harsh reminder of that!!! All of that is on the backburner when I am 3 weeks into being sick and willing to do whatever to get over being tired, not sleeping, and feeling like crap all day long!
Anyway, after more than an hour, I get a simple diagnosis of acute sinusitis or a sinus infection. I have go get a Z-pack and I'm on merry way (hopefully) to getting better.
Tonight was awful though! I really felt like I couldn't gather all of the strength inside of me to even move! I was supposed to be looking after the 3 kids that I watch (had Matthew with me) and all I wanted to do was lay down and sleep! I honestly haven't felt like this since I was in my first trimester. I'm so annoyed! I want get all kinds of things done, but when I start to do them, I just feel like I'm going to die! I hope that I can sleep through the night tonight and get up and back to my routine! I think I've done only, maybe 3 loads of laundry this week.....washed dishes like twice....maybe. Everything else has kind of gone by the wayside and I feel like a slacker. I know it's all because I just don't feel well though.
