H1N1 AND a Sinus Infection

November 18th, 2009, 10:24 PM
Sorry I've been MIA for a while. I've been sick with both H1N1 and a sinus infection. Not fun! I'm finally starting to feel a little better, but still don't have my energy or strength back yet. I'm trying to build myself back up to a whole work day too. I can't believe how weak it makes you! I actually thought it was better than a normal flu though, LOL, because my stomach was just fine. I actually felt almost normal, except for feeling like I had a bad cold, when I was just laying in bed. It was when I tried to move that I could feel the symtoms. Started out with a sore throat, then stuffy nose and cough, then mild body aches and chills for two days and a low grade fever. Then my fever shot up to 103 for about 6 days in a row and the congestion turned into a sinus infection. UGH, that was the worst part I think. The flu part was fairly mild, except for the fever. The body aches turned into body pain and joint pain, that was weird. I'm still tired and sore and weak, but getting back onto my feet now and was able to do 4 hours at work today. So I'm crawling back to the real world! :) I will say, with so much time on my hands and not being good with sitting still, I watched all 6 Star Wars movies, the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and several other series DVD's that I have that I haven't seen in a long time. It was all I could do to make the time pass since I was bored out of my mind in bed, but not really able to get up to do anything. I'm still fighing the sinus infection, on round two of antibiotics. :( I hope something kills this thing soon, it doesn't want to go away. I've had two sinus surgeries previously and this is one of the worst I've ever had. At least the doggies loved having me home for two weeks, LOL!
