Doctor's Orders

I listened to those of you who said. "Go to the doctor." The sore throat was getting worse and there was a significant color change in what my nose and throat were offering me. Yeah. It's time, I decided yesterday and called bright and early.

My allergist has multiple offices all over my county and into St. Louis. I have a hard time trying to figure out if he's here, there or where. As luck would have it, he was not only close to home yesterday, I got a late afternoon appointment! As I suspected, I have a raging sinus infection.

I spent longer at Walgreens than in the doctor's office but after a first round of medicine (including antibiotics, nasal spray and eardrops), a bit of Mucinex, and a handful of throat lozenges, life is slowly getting better. Yes, I am a walking pharmacy! My throat is still sore but it no longer feels like I've been drinking lye or sucking on a blowtorch. Progress.

Awww, I hope you have a speedy recovery! I get sinus infections all the time and they are killer.

I now only get prescriptions at Rite-Aid because they have a nice convenient drive-thru to drop off/pick up meds.

I hope you are taking a few days off of work to recover!

Oh my, sinus infections suck! By tomorrow you should feel 100 times better. Bring on the drugs.

Hope you feel better soon.
