Oh, there is thunder inside today😂😂
I’m fairly frustrated today so I’m writing it out in this blog. This isn’t my normal sexy poetry nor is it inspirational. It is, just life. Everyone gets frustrated from time to time. I’m also not communicating with anyone in any form other than writing this blog today as I am afraid I won’t have anything pleasant to say anyone.
The source of my frustration is my Immune System. I had Mono when I was 21 years old. I got Epstein Barr Virus from that. As a result,my Immune System hasn’t been the same since. About three years ago, a blood test showed I had low Immunoglobulins which means it takes my body longer to fight stuff off. At the time, they held off giving me injections but gave me a whole list of Vitamins to take each day.
This Spring has been tough on my allergies. They’ve been very “keyed” up this year and it’s beating the crap out of me. I was on an antibiotic for sinus/ear infection in May. I had to take steroids for a sinus pressure induced migraine in early June and last week the Lymph Node on the left side of my neck blew up and is very sore. I went to the ENT on Friday. We both agreed, I’ve been down this road before. Once I get runned down, for whatever reason, my Immune System takes a long time to get its act together to fight it. He said the Lymph Node is the last thing to heal when you get sick and it actually was doing its job by collecting the bad stuff instead of letting it spread. He thinks it’s a bacterial infection rather than viral. He gave me antibiotic for seven days and told me to get more rest than I think I need😂☺️ He also asked me to make an appointment with the Immunologist again to get my blood work checked again. That appointment is July 6th. If the Lymph Node isn’t better by the end of week, I have call the ENT again.
I don’t drink alcohol. I don’t smoke. I don’t eat Gluten. I exercise. I practice yoga and meditation. I take a lot of vitamins. I eat right. I get enough sleep. I’m just not sure what more I can do or give up. I’m laying on a sofa on a beautiful afternoon instead of on the beach. I don’t feel sorry for myself. I know there are people who would be glad to have this problem. I’m just frustrated because I am doing everything right.
I’m also frustrated because I have to go stay with my Mother for two days tomorrow after work because she is having Cataracts surgery on her other eye. I’m annoyed about this because her house is old and falling apart. She can no longer take care of the big house and she refuses to move. The house has mold, she doesn’t clean well and I always come home feeling like crap and exhausted. While I have other family I could stay with, she needs me there. After this trip, I’m going to talk to her. Perhaps, me not staying at her house any longer will help pressure to move to an apartment.
Well, hopefully, the antibiotic kicks in and this Lymph Node feels better by tomorrow. I’ll still go to work tomorrow since I’m off for two days after that. I’ll have to put a happy face on for the next few days while I wait out the Lymph Node. Hopefully. Writing this out will alleviate some stress and help me relax a bit.
