True Story

{June 16, 2010}   Bring it on – What else you got?

True Story:  So I’m starring down an oil slick, bankruptcy, divorce, single mom-hood, and then my sinuses decide to turn into the Great wall of China and block all flow.

Truth is, I don’t get sick that often. I know everyone says that (we are all in denial), but I was raised in a household where antibiotic was a bad word, and you only got them if you could prove infection.

I have always had bad allergies and sinusitis… So truly, when I am sick, it is usually a sinus infection.

Those of you sufferers know that untreated, they can last 6 weeks or more. I’ll admit I’ve had a few more since I have had a preschooler.

Along with all my other madness, our health insurance has lapsed.

I couldn’t take my sinuses any longer and got referred to a “cheap doctor”, back ally madness (not really).

I’m new, so she is taking my history.

Dr:  Tobacco?

Me:  Didn’t used to.

Dr:  What do you mean?

Me:  Well, I’m a little stressed lately. Might be partaking in a ciggy at the end of the night.

Dr:  Everyone is stressed right now. (She’s thinking economy).

Me:  Yeah…

Dr:  Alcohol?

Me:  Yep.

Dr:  How often?

Me:  Every night.

Dr:  Every night?

Me:  Yep.

Dr:  You might want to keep an eye on that so it doesn’t get out of control.

Me:  Where were you when I was 13?

True Story:  I realize that cigarettes & alcohol contribute to a sleepless night.

This was a BIG green monster that no amount of rest, exercise or fruit was going to cure. It was a BIOTIC that needed an ANTI.
