still. sick. gah!

I made it through a little half-day at work on Monday, but I’ve been home for the past two days. This bronchitis is killing me. Maybe it’s because of the exhaustion (since I can’t seem to sleep for more than two hours continuously), but I honestly cannot remember the last time I was this sick.

The worst is at night, I have coughing spasms where I can’t catch my breath and I don’t know how to stop them. Dave has somehow slept through all of it the last several nights, but last night he woke up during one of my coughing-in-my-sleep fits. He started patting me on the back, which was sweet, but it woke me up, so that was no help (exhaustion-wise, anyway). He said this morning that he was worried because I sounded like I was dying. Out of desperation, a couples of times in the middle of the night, I have actually used Dave’s asthma inhaler, which does help a little bit. Go me for disregarding my doctor’s instructions.

Oh, and also? I think I might have pink eye. Somebody just kill me.

I don’t have anything else to write about. I apparently picked the perfect week to get sick because everyone is at a big conference in downtown Seattle all week, so I don’t think anyone has even noticed that I haven’t been in the office.

I’d whine some more, but I need to go lie down with a cup of tea and some hot compresses on my eyes. Pray for me.

  1. Wow, I’m sorry to hear that. My doctor gave me great drops last time I had pink eye-cleared it up in a day. I hope you feel better soon!

  2. What in the name of Cliff Richard is “pink eye”? Is that the same as just having bloodshot eyes through lack of sleep or is it some viral “thing”?

  3. Who in the name of Pinkeye is Cliff Richard??? :op

    I dunno, i never heard of it either, I dont think we have it in the UK… but I did have a little chuckle when I heard Cindy tell her doctor about it on the phone 🙂

  4. You guys probably call it by its proper name, which is conjuctivitis. (sp?) We call it pink eye. It’s the same thing.
