After the CLA I came home, and felt a pain in my left ear and my eyes were so itchy and watery. I was so exhausted. I felt like I was getting an ear infection and possibly getting sick. I wasn’t sure what was happening.
When I woke up this morning, it felt as if someone was stabbing the middle of my ear. I wrote an e-mail to Nancy and Phyllis and told them that I was taking a sick day to go to medexpress. I was having extreme ear pain and needed to go to medexpress. I knew it was poor timing because the Sociology Commencement was today. However, everything was done for it. The certificates were made, and things were complete. All someone had to do was hand out the certificates. I didn’t think it was going to be a major deal and no one plans to get sick.
At MedExpress they diagnosed me with an ear infection and an upper respiratory infection, as well as a sore throat. The doctor prescribed me Prednisone and a Z pack. I got both filled there instead of waiting at Giant Eagle. I was hesitant to take the prednisone because it will make me gain weight like crazy!
When I got home, I took the first dose and started my Z pack. I was hoping to fill better as soon as possible. I am on the go type person. I can’t just lay around I hate it. I called my mother in law and she says that I probably have just ran myself into the wall with how busy I have been. I did just finish up another semester of grad school (waiting for the grade from my one class), while doing an internship, and working full time. I have been so busy truly, but at the same time. I needed to take care of myself and I will admit I put self care on the back burner sometimes.
In the evening, Drew came home, and we spent the evening just relaxing. He felt bad that I was sick and had an ear infection. He made me soup and grilled cheese for dinner. He is always there for me.
Before we went to bed, I was watching Dirty Dancing and I had such a headache, but I wanted to wait and take Advil before I went to bed. I wasn’t sure when I was going to bed, so I didn’t take anything. Well the headache turned into a migraine,and it was the most intense migraine I ever had. Drew helped me upstairs and into the bathroom where I threw up everything in my body. I have never had migraine that bad.
