Getting over the hump

Oh my, what a couple of days it's been. It started Monday afternoon, with a trip to the Emergency Room for Ben. It was all related to his back, and he's better now, but can I just say I absolutely hate seeing him in pain.
Home and resting

I stayed home with him yesterday and today as well, so I can help do things for him so he's not moving around too much.

Oh but wait. On top of medicine and restricted movement my allergies have hit me like a ton of bricks. Yesterday I tried four different kinds of medicine - don't worry I didn't mix them all at once - hot showers, water, and went through tissues and two rolls of toilet paper from blowing my nose. Today it seems to have moved into my chest and let me tell you, coughing is sexy.

I'm over trips to the ER. I'm over spring and the allergies that accompany it. And I'm definitely over Ben and I both not doing well at the same time.

Here's hoping we can get over the hump soon.

Oh man! What a rough week you've had. Hopefully your allergies calm themselves ASAP. Those are the absolute worst because they feel just like a cold but feels way more neverending.

Hope the two of you are back on your feet as soon as possible!

I've been sick for a week between an actual illness + allergies. I think I've gone through four or five tissue boxes at this point? It's insane.

Hope you both are feeling better soon and that Ben's back is ok!

Solidarity with the allergies. I take a one a day 24 hr. nondrowsy like Claritin or Zyrtec ( even the Target generic of it works well), but the thing that has helped me immensely have been nasal sprays- both allergy ones with medicine in them and the regular saline spray.
Hope you and the hubs are back to healthiness soon!

Ugh, what a rough week for you guys! I am kind of shocked that my allergies haven't been bad!

If you are still congested, it might be worth it to try using a netipot. I use my every night and it really seems to help me!

:( Sorry. Have you added local honey or local royal jelly into your diet? It helps with allergies - a homeopathic approach.

I am in the same boat. This sinus infection is kicking me hard and I can't stop because we have a retreat this weekend. I hope ya'll feel better soon.
