Really sick

I have been feeling really sick for the past few days and took yesterday and today off of work after loosing my voice completely Tuesday afternoon. I think I have a sinus infection... I'm not getting into gross details why though... Been having fevers on and off and now I am having trouble breathing... I'm upset because I had the same thing 2 weeks ago and am sick again. Ever since I started my career 3 years ago I am always ill and it's really getting me angry because I can't do all the stuff I normally used to do. I'm sick for 2-4 weeks, healthy for 1, then repeat the cycle. The only time I am healthy is during the summer when I am off and play catch up working out 2-3 times a day... I looked in the mirror after taking a shower this morning and felt so self-conscious and really embarassed. Sure I haven't been to the gym in over a month but jeeze! I'm seriously contemplating a career change just so I am in a different environment so I can be healthy again and get my lifestyle back. A member of my family is driving out from the city to help me out because I am out of groceries and don't want to suck in cold air and possibly spread anything to anyone else. I had a complete physical this past August and got a clean bill of health.. WTF is going on!!!!

I have an appointment with my doctor tomorrow and may hit the emergency room today if I get worse.

Hope everyone else is in better health than me! Take care of yourselves

I think right now EVERYONE is either fighting the common cold.Flu or sinus infections.It is going around.Just watch your fever really close and seek physicians care .If your not happy by what they tell you i sure would think about switching doctors especially since you said you already had it awhile back.You may need a stronger medication!Good Luck to you.Most of all Get plenty of rest.Drink LOTS of Fluids.

Hope you feel better. That's an aweful lot of crap you've been through in a short time. I recommend some hot tea and warm hugs.

Hope you feel better. When you mentioned about your illnesses co-incieding with starting your career. It very well be something at your job causing . There are many buildings that really make people sick. I t is suspect to me because you feel better when you spend more time outdoors.
