The Phlegm Queen Resurfaces...

Hi, folks.

Sorry it's been so long since I posted.
I have beern sick.  I picked up a respiratory bug at the end of August, and have been hacking my way along ever since.
It has seriously sapped my energy. Some days it was all I could do to get the girls off to school and sit in the comfy green chair, trying not to cough, until it was time to pick them up. I pulled a muscle in my back with that cough. Then I picked up a case of pink eye.

Seven weeks, two doctor visits, and three prescriptions later I am better, but I still cough alarmingly when I exert myself, have not yet returned to wearing my contacts after the pink eye, and get really tired really easily.

But, time and tide wait for no one and things are very busy in the Roper house. I have costumes to make and stuff I am helping Roper with for Windycon.
I just spent 25 minutes on the phone with the IL dept or revenue take care of an ISFIC Press thing.  Most of that time was on hold. Angry Birds can come in handy.
And in half an hour I have to go pick up the girls. Then I have to supervise homework and make dinner and ...

I'm going to try really hard to go this long without posting ever again.

I still have that bug - my doctor prescribed Tessalon pearle I think it's called which has helped suppress the cough enough to keep teaching. But I really feel for you - it's nasty, whatever it is.

Have they tried giving you an inhaler and/or prednisone for the cough?

I have a Flownaze sort of thing to spray up my nose at bedtime. Dr. Bob thinks it is compounded by the really bad allergy season we are having. The mold is keeping the system irritated and I, in my secret identity as the Phlegm Queen, am producing lots of the stuff. This is gumming up my passages. My lungs are clear.

Hopefully you start to feel better and get to stay that way for a while - though with kids I know that's unlikely to be longterm.


Will you be at OVFF?
