Crappy immune system

I’m still sick…. it’s been going on for two weeks now and I just feel like crap! Even crappier is that I met the doctor again today and he put me on another two weeks of sick leave. Oh I so hope I get well way before that! 

If that wasn’t enough of crappy things we’ve also had to cancel our long awaited 2 weeks vacation to Gran Canaria. I should have been enjoying nice warm weather and our own private pool right now! Instead I’m spending my days in the sofa either sleeping, resting or watching Netflix. I’m a little nostalgic and enjoying “Friends”. I’m on the last episodes of season 5 right now…

So what is wrong with me you might wonder?! Well it’s not a regular cold after all… and neither the flu… a not so nice bacteria called “moraxella catharalis” have decided that my body is a perfect place to have some fun! 😞 I started with antibiotics last week and yes it has helped but I’m far from healthy still.

I seriously hate–yes that is a strong word but in this case oh so true–that my RA causes my immune system to be open for infections. It’s so easy for the silliest of bacillus to enjoy my body. 😢

Sneezing and coughing

I’ve  been at home sick for 9 days now and it is so boring… Gosh what I miss going to work! 

Early last week it started like the flu with fever, cold, cough etc but this Monday I went to the doctor because I still felt quite bad. They took a bunch of tests plus that he put me on sick leave for the week. I had hoped I  wouldn’t need it all week but I’m still not felling good. Today the doctor finally called and told me I needed antibiotics for 10 days. Apparently I had a, to me, “non pronounceable bacteria”. I’m hoping I will feel better very soon though as we are flying–got a OK to go from the doc–to Gran Canaria on Saturday! I’m so excited… two weeks in a warm climate!
