340/366 today I … Went to the doctors

Today the doctor confirmed I have a sinus infection. The bad news is that there is no quick fix- antibiotics are useless here, basically I Just have to ride it out with painkillers and steam inhalation. Oh dear, I am not a good patient – far too impatient!
I missed my work Christmas lunch (boo) and will miss the black tie dinner dance on Friday (double boo as it cost me £70).
Doctor says it might take up to 10 days till I feel better … WTF? The earache is the worst thing- honestly it makes me cry and I like to think I’m quite tough!
Martin, bless him, is suffering too with a horrible cold and cough but has been going to work as they have a big job on. I feel like I can’ t look after him because I feel so rubbish myself. He bought home some super strong painkillers which help you sleep. We are in bed by 8.30pm hopefully we will feel a bit better tomorrow!!
Trying to find a silver lining here- it hurts to chew so maybe I will drop a couple of pounds in time for Christmas 🙂
