Being sick is boring...

Sooo, that sinus and ear infection? By Sunday I sorta felt better, but not quite, I chalked it up to the sinusitis being bad. By Monday afternoon I had a weird rash on my neck, was feeling horrible, and clearly had another fever. Back to urgent care I went. 
1000mg of tylenol for a fever of nearly 103, a chest x-ray, and a blood draw, I had pneumonia. Seriously? I told the doctor that I don't get sick, mainly because I am not good at doing nothing, he said stay home for at least 2 days, preferably 3. Woohoo?
By the time I got home (after a trip to CVS and Trader Joe's for more soup) I was feeling pretty icky and coughing a lot. A fairly good night's sleep and I woke up feeling...pretty sick, something I am very rarely. So I parked myself on the couch with the remote, my laptop, ipad, and phone.
My day yesterday was pretty, well, boring. I watched lots of tv and played ipad solitaire, organized my pinterest boards, but then there was the hour or so when my phone wouldn't upload photos to instagram (oh the inhumanity). I've also played lots of games of words with friends (tamarsb88) - so feel free to keep me entertained!

Overall, pneumonia bites. I really feel run down and week, and can't take deep breathes. So not much to do but hope that by the end of today I feel strong enough to try to go to work for even a little bit. You know I'm sick when I am not even thinking about the gym, trying to cough and breathe is workout enough right now!

Girl, you need to stay parked on that couch for awhile!! I got pneumonia every year for a couple of years, until they gave me a vaccine . . . and I hear ya on the boring coming off a sinus infection and asthma myself. Mine went to bronchitis, but thankfully I'm starting to feel better. It will probably take you awhile to feel really back to normal - take care!!

I'm so sorry! Sick is the worst. I've done the whole pneumonia thing, it sucks, or blows as the case may be. Try to lay low and heal. I'm looking for you on words with friends.

It's boring, but take it easy. You'll feel better much sooner. Which will hopefully be VERY soon! :)
