It's been sooooo long since I've really been sick. The last time was right after Lily was born, and I took Cipro and was good as new in no time. Anyway I'm sick and sooooo miserable right now. Cf decided it would mess with my lungs and my tummy at the same time, ughhh!

It all started like two weeks ago. I was great and being a good little cfer and doin all my nebs and everything and then my asthma started bothering me. I had just done my nebs and laying in bed trying to sleep and gasping for air, I would have killed for an oxygen tank!!! I have had problems like this before, it's usually something to do with my allergies (I must be allergic to EVERYTHING) and since I had run out of zyrtec I just thought it was that. Anyways I was coughing like usual with my treatments but nothing would come up. I guess my lungs just wouldn't open up enough or something. Anyway I finally got some zyrtec and immediately noticed "some" difference. And ever since I've been hacking my brains out! There's a ton of junk coming out and I'm just so short of breath. All I wanna do is sleep and I just start gasping when I do anything. I feel like I have a fever but the thermometer says it's normal. I'm starting Tobi nebs right now. If I'm not better in a few days I'm calling UK. I can't feel like this and take care of a toddler!

Now on to my tummy. I didn't "go" for like a week! My back went numb and tingly! I've been drinking miralax and eating stool softeners like their candy! The only way I can go is to not take my enzymes and take the miralax and docusate. I had the same symptoms when I was pregnant, but since there's a zero chance that I'm pregnant I'm ruling that out. I don't know what's going on with my body but I'm thoroughly miserable.

But on a happier note... there's a small glimmer of hope when it comes to getting out of this crappy trailer.... but the earliest is like Christmas! Uggghhhh my life.....


  1. You poor thing!! Feel better soon! xo

  2. For the first time this winter I've actually felt really good, and I credit that to TOBI. I hope you have similar results! Feel better!

  3. It sounds like you have a bowel obstruction. For me, miralax isn't enough for that - I would call and ask for a prescription for Golytely.

    Also, CALL THE CF CENTER. These sound like symptoms you don't want to let go too long esp trying to take care of a little girl! They will have better advice for you.

  4. Jess, thanks :)
    Jenny, I hope so too! It usually works wonders so lets hope.
    Cindy, I know, I know you're right. I've never really had to call in between visits so I guess that's why I haven't yet. But I am goin to in a few. I look like I'm 6 months preggo! Ughhh, that and lungs bein crappy sucks. I've always been able to get better in no time and usually just with TOBI but I've never been so outta breath in my life. My fingernails looked a little blue last night! SCARY! I've been doin like 4 treatments a day and I STILL feel crappy!

  5. Aww I hope you feel better soon, and if you do have to go ino the hospital, I promise it is not as bad as you think. I'll be praying for you girl!! Keep us updated!

  6. I hope you feel better real soon! Love ya Cys! Xo
