Quick update (Jennifer)

The good news is that they called Friday evening and said my chest x-ray was negative.  The bad news is that I still dont feel  normal or like any of the meds are fixing it...AND I am on steroids which is a nightmare for someone trying to eat well.  I am hungry, VERY hungry.  I had actually forgetten (and this is definately a huge reminder) how it feels to be so out of control hungry.  My pants are tight, I feel bloated, and my self image has plummeted because of it.  Only a few more days on this medicine though.  I have an appt next week that I made with an ENT and also a new primary care practice.  So...I will keep my fingers crossed and keep praying.  Thanks to you all for your kind words and thoughts.

Oh no!! I'll be praying that all of this clears up, and that you can get back to your healthy self SOON.

I hope you'll be feeling better soon. I have had this "evil" virus also, and have not felt well for over 4 weeks. I also feel bloated and sluggish, probably from not being able to be as active. I'm trying to take care of myself so that I can get moving again. You take care too, and we'll be back at it soon.

So glad to hear about your negative test, but am sorry to hear about the steroid-that is tough to combat. Hopefully your chest will clear up soon. Crossing my fingers that you will be better soon.

Not knowing what's wrong with you is never fun. I went thru that in August. Praying that you feel MUCH better very soon! :-)

What a pain - I hate being on steroids because of the hunger issue, but they usually DO work...such a necessary evil sometimes. Hope you get some answers soon and are on the road to recovery!
