Hi there! It's time for another Something About Me Saturday post hosted by Disney Bird! I love joining in on this hop - it's so much fun!! It's really nice getting to know more about these wonderful bloggers that I follow each week!
This week has been pretty exhausting for me - mostly because I have been sick. On Monday, I started feeling really tired and worn down. By Tuesday, I had a sore throat and was really not feeling well. I had a lot to do at work this week, so I went on in on Wednesday, but by lunch I was done. I ended up leaving work and headed straight to the doctor's office. I was there for over 2 hours and after a strep test and blood work, it was determined that I had walking pneumonia. To some, this isn't a very serious issue. Many people walk around with it and never realize they have it. Unfortunately for me, it hits me a little harder than most people. I was hoping after the two wonderful shots that I got from the doctor, the antibiotic, couch medicine, and allergy pill that I would feel well enough to head to work on Friday. Unfortunately I am still not feeling much better and it's already Saturday morning.
Many of my friends and family worry when I get walking pneumonia and believe that I should see a pulmonologist. You might be thinking that it would be a little much, but I have had walking pneumonia 6 times now in the past 2 years. In the Fall of 2009 I had it 2 times between September and December (along with Strep once) and within the same time period in 2010 I had it 3 times. This year it seems to be hitting me a little earlier, so I am hoping that it doesn't mean I am going to get it more this year. I do actually worry a little bit about getting it so much, so I am thinking that if I don't start feeling better soon or get it again within a few months, then I will see a specialist to see if there is anything else going on with me.
I am really hoping that rest this weekend will help me get over it this so I can get back to normal on Monday!
Thanks for joining me this week from the Something About Me Saturday Hop!
