Finally Human Again...I Think

After nearly four weeks of suffering from the effects of a sinus infection, I may actually be functional again.  I don't remember a sinus infection that exhaused me for so long after starting antibiotics, and I'm the Queen of Sinusitis!  I don't mind being SICK, but I do mind being nominally well, but exhausted and still blowing STUFF out of my head and coughing like mad.

The previous post gives the early chronology of this particular round of sinusitis  After the initial euphoria at feeling somewhat better, I seemed to slip backward some, and I was just so TIRED all the time.  Over the weekend, I was able to accomplish some things around the house, but I'd have to stop and rest, and by late afternoon, I was DONE.  Nothing else was going to happen except for coughing and nose blowing.  Monday I felt pretty good, and got some things accomplished in the evening, but on Tuesday, I hit the wall around 2:00 in the afternoon and went home.  I struggled to stay awake driving home, and had The Boy drive me to dinner because I was hungry but couldn't do anything about it.  I fell asleep in the car coming and going, and could hardly drag myself to bed.

Once I had my pajamas on and was IN bed, however, I couldn't go to sleep.  My brain was racing in circles and wouldn't let me relax.  Maybe I should have had The Boy drive me around for a while, like we used to do with The Girl to get her to sleep.  Hmmmmm...  I hadn't thought of that before.  I'll have to file that one away to try some other day.

But after all that, today I feel pretty good, and I feel ready to get back into physical activity.

My running has gone all to heck, so I expect I'll have to walk the Mini Marathon.  It is what it is.  I'll just have to adjust my expectations once again.  One of these years I WILL get all my training in.

But not THIS year.  Oh well.  You do the best you can with what you've got, and this year, I ain't got much!
