Thank you ladies, all SO much for your prayers for me, and your encouragement and suggestions. Karen I LOVE the suggestion about garlic... I am going to try that! For those of you concerned I should see a doctor, I so appreciate it, but I'm pretty sure it's just my immune system is trashed from being sick previously this winter, and then all the stress from work/life balance, etc, that I've been struggling with in the new year. I've struggled with sinus infections for years, and antibiotics only make it worse, which is what a doctor will give me. So, I really just have to take lots of vitamin c, get rest, pray, and ride it out (unless it moves into my chest at which point I do go see a doctor). And now I'm going to try garlic!
And the good news is I woke up this morning not feeling worse than when I went to bed the night before, which is a good sign that I may well have this licked by Thursday. Typically with sinus infections I loathe going to bed at nght becuase I get little sleep and wake up feeling worse than before. But not this morning; my sore throat is gone, my sinuses are much less impacted, and while still a bit stuffy, air can travel through my nasal passages, all good sinus. No sinus headache either. As is my body is telling me not to count my health chickens before they hatch, however, that last sentence was interuped by fit of five violent sneezes in a row. So... still not out of the woods here, but I think I can see the light through the trees.
I thank you all so much for your prayers, i do believe they are working. Going home this weekend is very important to me. I have a very long day today, work late and then, as Karen mentioned in her post, I am supposed to go to Awanna tonight. I really don't feel like I can miss it, as I've missed a few times this year already from sickness, and I am at least functional (and will Lord willing stay that way) so I should go, so pray I can come home and go right to bed and get lots of sleep.
Thanks again, ladies. I am so touched to have so many comments on that last post. You're all the sweetest friends a gal could have.
