Respiratory symptoms seem to be improving, but now I've got a brutal case of the runs. TMI for some, I'm sure )

I can't remember a time when I wasn't sick. I know once upon a time I must have been well, but I really have no idea what that would even feel like.

I have another doctor's appointment at 11:20. Maybe I've finally got something that antibiotics will fix, but i'm not holding out much hope.

My neighbor Judith took Liam into daycare this morning. Thank god for cohousing. In order to do so, she'll have to clean off my car, which means it should be clean enough that I won't have to kill myself scraping before going to the doctor.

My hair is nasty, I'm going to go take a shower and breathe in some warm humidified air.
They gave me an antibiotic. Hopefully it will do something.

Now, I must nap.

I think the antibiotic was the right thing. Because I'm definitely bringing up yellow stuff from my chest now, not just drainage from my nose. And my lung feels so heavy. When you can feel your lung, you know something is wrong. Go, little antibiotics, go!

I need to start keeping better track of when I take my various medicines. Right now I'm taking Tessalon (cough suppressant pills), Omnicef (antibiotic), Drixoral (praise be to Ghod, decongestant/antihistamine), Tylenol (for the headache that won't go away), and Albuterol (so i can breath). I stopped taking the codeine containing cough syrup, because I just wasn't coughing that much and it was messing with my sleep. But, of course, everything's on a different dosing schedule, and in my adled state, it's easy to forget when I took what.

And right now, i want some more albuterol, and am not sure if I can have any yet. Thanks to my IM log, I know I was drinking soup and chatting with [livejournal.com profile] kgkofmel at 12:42, so it was probably around 12:30 that I took my last dose. I'll see if I can make it another hour, then. Or you know, maybe not, we are talking about breathing, and breathing is important.
I know it's too early to say, but I do think maybe I'm starting to feel better. My neighbor Judith says my color is better than it has been. It certainly hasn't hurt to spend the day doing nothing but lying on the couch (except for the trip to the doctor and the pharmacy in there).

Oh, I really really hope so. I'm so tired of being ill, and surrounded by things that need doing with no energy to do them.
