Surprisingly I didn't get strep, I got a sinus infection. First off, I am sorry to all you who have had a sinus infection before. I have not and I thought that all of you who complained were "pansies." Its just a stuffy nose I thought, possibly a head ache too. I had no idea that it was so painful all over you face, that whenever you bent over you hoped that your face would just fall off. I had no idea it could swell so much that you can't really open your eye. I had no idea it can imitate a toothache and mimic the flu affecting the entire body. I am sorry sorry sorry! I have learned my lesson.
Its also ironic where I have the sinus infection because less than two years ago I had my nose fixed, not a real nose job just a deviated septum fix. I broke my nose when I was little and as it healed it completely shut off my left nostril. (TMI? maybe) Anyway for over 20 years my left side of my face was sitting completely unused so when it got "opened" it was like a little kid nose in a very grown up environment. It got an infection, a really awful infection... I hurt.
My hubby has been fantastic, he has been able to stay home from work to take care of the kids and me. He is awesome, incredible, stupendous, rad, groovy, everything good! He helped my out while smiling and never complained at all. I told you he is AWESOME!
Sometimes, though, a girl just needs her mom. I called her to for the sole purpose of getting some sympathy.
Me: Hi mom, I am calling to get symphony, I mean sympathy
Mom: What's wrong?
Me: I am sick, I got a sinus infection
|Awesome Sympathy Givers|
Mom: Oh sweetie you poor girl, have you gone to the doctors?
Me: Yes (extremely whiny)
Mom: OOOO ooo ahh you poor thing, they are the worst
Me: Yeah they are horrible I had no idea
Mom: There there, (insert awesome mom advice to help out with pain, fever, and discomfort)
Mom: Did I give you enough sympathy?
Me: Yes mom you are the best, thanks for the symphon... sympathy. I keep messing those two word up, I love you mom!
Me: Ko, sometimes a girl just needs her mom, you are the best ever too!
Thanks to everyone who gave me sympathy too. Sometimes just hearing the infamous "there there" is a great boost toward healing. I hope to be completely better by next week because I have a lot planned that I do not want to miss!
Go away you foul germs! I don't want you in my home anymore! Fear the medicine, vitamins, and soap you beasts! Die Die Die!
