I haven’t had the best run of luck with my health as of late. About a month ago, I was plagued with a monstrosity of a canker sore for about a month, which spawned many baby canker sores right above it for a grand total of ten canker sores at one time. I did everything I could. I used mouthwash. I used Orajel. I made a baking soda paste to spread on the canker sores (if you love pain, try this one). I gargled with salt water. And they only multiplied and got bigger (I’ll spare you the picture).
Three weeks ago, I had a severe migraine for about two to three days. It seems as though the migraines are a constant companion about…every 28 days…if you know what I’m saying. Regular pain killers do NOTHING for these. My sweet husband went out and bought me Excedrin for my migraines, which helped a lot.
Then, two weeks ago, I felt the onset of a bladder infection. It wasn’t severe, so I thought that if I drank a lot of water, I could flush it out. The next day, within a span of two hours, it went from tolerable to agonizing pain. I know, I know, wipe from front to back, and pee after sex. I KNOW. My male doctor told me with my husband in the room. I was given antibiotics, which didn’t work, so the pain lasted for another week before severe back pain accompanied it.
Kidney infection! I honestly thought I was going to die from the pain in my back and abdomen, I couldn’t sleep at all! So I went back to the doctor yet again, who gave me stronger medication, and a week later, I am all cured! Hopefully it lasts, everyone is getting a cold.
All this to say, I am thankful for good health, and the ability to eat food normally and to kiss my husband without worrying about pain.
Here’s to good health!
