I don’t remember what it’s like to be healthy

This fall has been a rough one. Between my endometriosis and apparently my on and off again relationship with a sinus cold… I think I’ve maybe missed half the semester’s classes. Including this week. And last week (but thankfully it was a holiday week, so I only really missed 2 classes).

Just when I start feeling a teeny bit better, I realize that all the coughing and sneezing and mucus draining has just aggravated my endo. And then that cycle of pain continues. I can’t take antibiotics because they cancel out my endo medication. I’m stuck to letting my body handle this on its own. Of course, I’m trying to help it with cold medicine, a river of fluids, and cough drops.

I’m sort of excited about the end of the semester because then I can sleep and rest without guilt. It’s hard to keep up with stuff when all you want to do is sleep, or stop coughing/sneezing.

Ugh. Anyway. This isn’t a pity post. It’s just what my life has been lately. School is awesome when I’m able to get there. And I’m thankful for the few good days I had over the holidays to see my family. Even if I crashed hard after. But for now I’m going to re-dose on my cough medicine, reapply some vaporub, and have a nice soup for brunch.
