Diff when Men and Women are sick...

Thursday, January 21, 2010

I know that you all know I have been sick for weeks (I can safely say a few months) with this headache and sinus pressure. But I kept taking OTC medicine. I mean I even had white blisters on my throat and in such pain it hurt to move my tongue. Well I knew it was a sinus infection but mustard through it. Well I went the other day and got on Augmentine 875 and nose spray for the infection. I am now going on 8 straight days of a terrible headache that I can't even sleep. I can't see right from the pressure in my face.

Well my DH started feeling sick yesterday. Just one day and I think he is dying. I mean he keeps the entire house up and walking around moaning.

So I want to know when us Mommies or girls are sick we have to continue our everyday lives but a man gets sick one day the world must stop?

Please someone explain this to me????

    When you first start to feel a sinus infection try using a nettie pot (sp?). I didn't think I could use one but I did and it really relieved the congestion. It might work later on too but since I've been doing this I've not had a full-blown sinus infection. Walgreens has them and I'm sure other stores do too.

    Magic Wand

    I wish I had a magic wand
    To make it go away;
    I'd wave my scepter over you
    Until you were okay.
    I'd think good thoughts; I'd send you love;
    I'd transmit healing vibes;
    My wand and I would surely beat
    Whatever the doc prescribes.
    But there is no magic scepter, so
    I cannot cast a spell;
    Just know you're often in my thoughts,
    And I hope you'll soon be well!

    Oh, men are babies in grown up bodies, most of them don't want a wife or partner they want a surrogate 'mommie' and if they're ill then they have to make sure that EVERYONE knows it, we call it man flu.

    You really didn't ought to be exercising while you're ill it can cause all sorts of problems, not least with the heart,your body uses all it's strength to heal itself and exercising is getting in the way of that, rest as best you can (I know it's difficult with kids and men) but don't over do it, get yourself checked out and seek medical advice before continuing.

    Hope you're feeling well soon.

    Yikes! The white blisters on your throat could have been strep throat! Glad you're on antibiotics.

    Guys ARE worse than women when it comes to feeling poorly. My DH does that too, just moans and groans and as soon as I'm feeling poorly and just state it, I get yelled out for complaining! LOL...men!

    Hope you feel better soon! But to keep on keepin' on exercising and eating good while you're sick...heck, you got it goin' on, girl!

    Proud of ya! emoticon

    It is a phenomenon we will never be able to explain. I am just getting over my sinus infection. I can't believe how it drains your body. I guess it is how God wired us. Us women must drive on or chaos will occur. Men don't have the same drive. They know when they get sick the women in their lives will pick up where the men left off :)

    Just the way it is I suppose :(
