Because complaining can be therapeutic


I’m sick. Yesterday around 11 I’m at work and my throat starts hurting. By noon, I’m all snotty and full on sick. Such a nightmare. I’m actually a really good sick person. I don’t whine about it, call in to work or ring a bell for my husband to come running with tea, cookies and massages. Well, one of those things I may do. All I ask in return for being such a good sick person is for my doctor to throw some antibiotics at me. Is that too much to ask? Clearly, yes. I got into the dr yesterday evening, fully expecting him to take one look at my puffy face and snotty disposition and write out an Rx for a z-pack or something similar. I know my body and I know what a sinus infection looks/feels like, and I’ve got one. So mr. doctor man looks at me, asks about allergies, etc. I tell him nope, it’s a sinus infection, here are my symptoms… what do I leave with? Nothing-he’s sure it’s a cold and will clear up in a few days. Such bs.

Is there a black market out there for z-pack? Cause I’m buying if there is. Just putting it out there. Connor is on something right now for his ear infection and I’m not going to lie and say I didn’t think about it…

That just happened to me!! I was told to take mucinex. Doctors are ridiculous!

Go get yourself some zicam. It's a miracle drug. You'll get over it way faster, regardless of what it is.

Good luck! Hope you feel better. Now I am wishing I wouldn't have tossed away the left over amoxicillin from Ben's tooth issue! I totally could have tossed them your way!

Word on the zicam. I particularly like the q-tip kind. There are a million different types of zicam, but that's my fave.
