I started my antibiotics Monday evening, and I felt better yesterday, but I was still only running between 50 and 75%. At least, I was able to get some things done, things that I could sit while I did them, like folding clothes. Today I feel a little bit better, but the big news is that I can breathe through my nose and I spent all of last night in our bed. Breathing through my nose has been so hard since I got this awful cold last week that I haven't been able to sleep. Not only have I been wide awake at 2:30 a.m., but I have also been afraid that my breathing was bothering John. So I have gotten out of bed every day since last Wednesday between 2:30 and 5:00 in the morning. Last night was nice because I could breathe all night long; I still didn't sleep well, but I didn't have to get up either. My whole face still hurts because my sinuses are all full; it hurts just to touch my forehead. And when I bend over, it feels like someone is sticking a knife in my face. I'm learning to pick things up correctly, by bending my knees!
I'm sorry that I don't have anything more uplifting to write about, but I cannot remember when I have felt this badly for such a long period of time. Have you ever felt this badly? How are you feeling now?
