Rough Week

Tags asthma, sinus

I've been fighting a sinus infection and asthma for about 3 weeks now. This is my second round of steroids and my second antibiotic. I woke up with an acute sinus infection on Monday and was throwing up everywhere. I went to Urgent Care because there was no way I was making it to my doctor's office in Wilmington and they put me in front of two people because I had to go immediately to the bathroom and throw up. I got a really strong antibiotic shot, a steroid shot, and a nausea shot, and they sent...

Hashimoto's & AutoImmune Disorder

Posted 06-27-2012 07:28 AM by Apache Kristy

But a few months ago, after YEARS of bouncing between dosage on thyroid medication, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Disease and AutoImmune Disorder. I'm still not 100% sure on what that means.
