Saw the doctor today and over the weekend my cough was really kicking it into gear. I've been exhausted. The doctor told me I'm a "very sick girl." Yeah, I figured that, doc. He said I have sinusitis, fluid behind my ear, mucus dripping down into my throat and broncho-spasms (said my lungs were squeaky.) Woohoo. Not. So I got Advair, Albuterol, Zithromax and Prednisone. Plus he told me to get mucinex and do nasal washes twice a day. Also to get my flu shot, which they were doing in the lobby of the hospital today. Oh, and no exercise for a while - doctor's orders! I'm supposed to get lots of rest. Bleah. I asked him about weight loss and told him what I've been doing. He said that it's a healthy diet, but to lose weight I'd have to give up carbs. Yeah, ain't gonna happen. I don't think that's healthy. I'm going to continue using the Abs Diet and just cope with the slower loss. Maybe I'll find a nutritionist I can consult.
Friday night, Saturday night and all day Sunday, my husband and I were attending training to become NRA Basic Pistol Trainers. We had to do a few presentations and that was so not fun with this cough. It continues next weekend. It's been fun, but a lot to cope with when feeling crappy. Hopefully by the weekend I'll be a lot healthier.
