Sick :(

March 15th, 2013 at 07:51 pm

Well it seems like my allergies have done the thing I dread most when they've gone on and on without end ... settled into my chest. Yesterday during the book sale I was starting to feel crummy, but could do nothing about it. 10 hour day. (Made $107! Selling books that were duplicates or just not wanted for our library.)

I might need to figure out if there are any places I can go on the weekend besides the ER here. Hoping it's not bronchitis, but my cough has gotten deeper and deeper today, and am hearing wheezing when I breathe ... not good signs.

Today at work (yes, I went to work - still need to make those emergency lesson plans, not to mention needed to take pictures of drama club's play -very cute!) I typed up instructions for the different groups of kids and told them they *must* read the instructions *first* before asking me for help. Most of them did a pretty good job of it, and it cut down on a lot of the questions. That was good, because I really was NOT feeling it today.

I went into town this afternoon (after taking care of the pastor's pets) and stopped at Walgreens. I debated on whether to go inside, or to go in the car lane. I decided to go in the car lane because my feet were hurting and I wanted to avoid temptations inside. 20+ minutes later with ONE car ahead of me, I finally had my turn! Yikes! A lady behind me about ten minutes into the wait yelled out her window "What's with the holdup!?" I just kind of rolled my eyes - as if an answer to that question would speed anything along.

I'll probably go to bed as soon as I hit the daily goal for SBs - of course it would have to be 100 and NO surveys I qualify for (tried a dozen+). At least I had one search win (27).

Ok, off now to catch up on the blogs.

    So sorry you're feeling poorly, coughing and wheezy. Do you trust your pharmacist? They are often very helpful with OTC meds that are safe and work well with any assigned RX. Hope a weekend of rest and no book dust allows recovery.

    Thanks Snafu,

    I feel like I've taken way too much OTC stuff the last few months as it is trying to combat the allergies/ poss. sinus infection(s)? So am thinking I need to have a real appointment.

    Wish I could have the whole weekend for rest. Tomorrow will be, but Sunday I have umpteen hours of work to do on the yearbook. Deadline is Monday. Ugh.

    Frown Rest when you can.

    Thanks everyone. I've just been looking to see if there are any urgent care places within 75 miles. The closest one is Albuquerque. If I go to the ER it is a $280 copay. This is one thing that stinks about living in the middle of nowhere.

    oh dear, feel better, Laura. I never get surveys anymore. I wonder if they know I'm in the UK?

    Feel better soon.
    Do you have an inhaler? You might try one when your allergies kick up to keep it out of your chest.
