Well I have been feeling about a thousand times better the last couple of days! I had a horrible sinus infection and the second antibiotic did the trick. It is one I have never been on and I think the problem with the other one is that I have been on it so many times for sinus infection that the bacteria is resistant to that one. I know now some are advising doctors not to prescribe antibiotics for sinus infection because of the issue of creating super strains of bacteria and my brother who is a microbiologist has been saying for a LONG time that doctors vastly over prescribe antibiotics and create a lot of problems that way. My thing is that I don't ask for them when I have a sinus infection and many times am able to get over them on my own but when they become debilitating what do you do other than that because I have tried rinses and other things like decongestants etc and they just don't make a dent. It is incredibly hard with this brain disease to go on and on when they get that bad because I can't think straight because my focus is continually interrupted by the pain.
We actually, should say my wife has because while I have often been with her I have made virtually no decisions or been able to keep track of things, have most of our shopping done. We still have some to do but we are actually way ahead of where we often are at this point. That seems good. We haven't done any decorating so it doesn't seem much like Christmas around here and with the weather being an all time record breaking year for high temps and lack of moisture it hasn't felt much like Christmas either. Yesterday it was 68 here shattering the old record of 63 and lately our lows have been above average highs for this time of year. Crazy! It is the warmest year in recorded history and last night they said by the end of the week we will break the record for number of days without at least an inch of snow on the ground. Snow hasn't even been a possibility much this year as the temps have been above freezing so much of the time and we have had so little moisture all summer and fall. It worries me for agriculture and the environment if we don't start making up some of the deficit soon.
I have been feeling more disjointed from my surroundings often lately. It is very hard to explain to someone that hasn't experienced this but things just don't "feel" right and you feel kind of separated from what is going on around you. It is also so easy to miss a lot of what goes on around you. I am not exactly looking forward to the commotion of the holidays as it becomes a bit overwhelming at times when large groups of family get together and there are a ton of kids. I can deal with it though so far and hopefully for a lot of years to come. It can just be a bit of sensory overload at times.
