My sinuses are killing me

Guys, I am ill.

I feel like I have been hit by a bus, the bus then put in reverse to drive over me and then he went straight and ran over me once more. I HATE THIS!

Every single year I get a sinus infection. It’s an annual thing for me but this is the first time I got the fever with it. It all started on Saturday and the fever came yesterday. I got really scared I might be getting the flu so I went to see a doctor here in Zagreb. They told me that I am at risk of getting the flu and that I should stay home, in bed, resting and drinking lots of fluids. I also got some medication to control my fever but she didn’t give me an antibiotic for my sinuses. Now I have to take my ill ass back to Zabok to see my doctor to get antibiotics and the paperwork for my sick days of work.

There’s nothing like hearing you are at risk of getting the flu and then going to a doctor’s waiting room filled with ill people. Great. Just great. I have no idea how am I going to endure a train ride from Zagreb to Zabok since my head feels like it’s going to explode all the time but I have to pull through.

I was actually planning on going to work today and ignoring the doctor a bit but when I got up in the morning I couldn’t open my eyes fully because of the pressure in my head. I get dizzy all the time and I also cannot concentrate on anything so I spent the day in bed.

I am sorry for the lack of posts today in The Poetry Bar but I am just feeling dead. I decided to stick to my “one post a day” routine so here is me complaining about my illness and throwing in a random outfit picture because I don’t know how to write poems about my sinuses.

I hope your week started better than mine.

Sending love and positive vibes

    1. I am working on it. Thank you!

  1. Grhhhhh sinus….hope you are out of the woods soon.

  2. I hope you get well soon 🙂

  3. Ohh, that’s bad. Hope you feel better soon. Take care.

  4. Totally can relate to your fear of hospital waiting rooms! We’re currently in China and when the nCoV epidemic started, I told my wife no way we go to the hospital if we start feeling symptoms, because that’s the worst place to be right now. Hang in there and get better soon!

    1. Thank you! I actually had to wear a mask when I was going to the doctor because my immune system is just taking a big hit now.

  5. one thing that’s always helped me with my sinus’ is a wet (moist) wash cloth draped over the nostrils. Either hot or cold, preferably hot. When I got the flu for the first time in my life a couple years ago, the doc suggested running the water hot-hot-hot, and let the bathroom get all steamy. The steam will help clear the head. Of course, hot showers will help you feel better, but you don’t want to get it a hot-hot-hot shower.
    Hope this helps…
    take care and feel better soon!

    1. I have been doing this technique for years. Hot, steaming showers and steaming with tea, it does ease the pain and clears the sinuses a bit. Thank you for showing so much care! <3

  6. Sorry dear, get well soonest #hugs

  7. Have you ever tried a Netti pot? Basically it’s like a sinus bulb extractor for adults. Eat some Thai curry soup or chicken soup (Jewish penicillin lol) that always makes me feel better. Being stuffed up with the pain of an infection is awful, I hope you feel better my friend🙏

    1. Thank you! I actually did eat spicy noodle soup and it did help a bit but it turned out that my sinus infection is the flu so I am on some horribly strong medication now.

      1. Oh no!! I have been observing many more people getting the flu this year. I hope you feel better soon!

  8. I certainly hope you start feeling well, soon. I drink a lot of hot tea when I am sick.

  9. I’d rather see a sympathetic sick photo…hope ya feel better soon. Sinus infections truly suck :/

    1. Oh trust me, there’s no sick photo because I would scare people with how red my face is.

  10. Feel better, Luna!

      1. You’re welcome! 🙂

  11. Vitamins C, A, propolis, hot tea and you will be healthy Luna.

    1. I have them all! Thank you 😀

  12. It is miserable. I steam. Get well soon.

  13. I think maybe the title is the poem.
    Hope you feel better soon

    1. I am trying. Thank you!

  14. Get well soon.

  15. I hope you are feeling much better. I love this outfit and these are fun shots to see. If I may make a tiny suggestion, instead of looking at the screen on your cell, look at the lens of the cell in the mirror as you push the shutter button, that way you will be looking right at the viewer staring them in the eye.
