Day 361: Shot Swelling Shenanigans.

 

SWOLLEN.

SWOLLEN.

Okay, so obviously this photo is an exaggeration…. [and i took it on photobooth] BUT, i had a super bad reaction to my allergy shot today and my right arm swelled up like a ballooon! The doctor had to examine me & give me emergency Zyrtec! “to take the edge off…” he said…. i felt like he was giving me whiskey or something…. ridiculous! Anyway. my eustachian tubes in my ears are extremely clogged… glands swollen… earache, throatache, nose cloggage! And all on the left side, so i feel a little bit uneven!

You can find me here one a week getting a dreaded allergy shot! needles don’t bother me whatsoever… but the fact that i have an allergic reaction to the medicine that is supposed to be FIXING my allergies every week, DOES bother me.

Day 255: Ear Candles.

 

I thought my hair was going to catch on fire!

I thought my hair was going to catch on fire!

So, yesterday… I stuck candles in my ears. Two in each ear to be exact. Have you ever heard of ear candling? I’ve always heard that it doesn’t really work…. well guess what? It DOES. I have extreme allergies, earaches, sinus troubles… we have some friends who have used ear candles before and said we should give it a try. So … I did… it definitely does it’s job. my ears are SO clogged that it brought up a disgusting amount of wax. i know that is TMI…. but it was amazing. [and gross]. i will definitely be using more, because my ears are so full of pressure! It’s true! Ear candling is the real deal!

Day 199: Boo for blood!

 

Say NO to the bloody nose!

Say NO to the bloody nose!

I’ve been getting killer nosebleeds for over a month! i’ve been dealing with allergy/sinus/earache/headache lameness for ages, but tonight i had one of the worst bloody nose incidents yet. all i have to say is: BOO FOR BLOOD! [except for the fact that when it runs through your veins, it is keeping you alive.]

Day 123: BOO for blood tests.

 

my needled arm.

my needled arm.

So, I’ve been sick for months… and FINALLY after another trip to the doctor and more blood tests… I found out that i’ve had a bad bacterial infection… and because of this infection, my sinus infection and other lame illnesses have been lingering around for months… so i am on “the big guns” antibiotics that will hopefully “knock out all the infections” <— that’s what the doctor called the medicine… the big guns… and i hope they SHOOT these BAD, evil bacterium dead!
