Apathy is no friend of mine...

I am so apathetic these days, and part of it is this cold, snowy winter but it seems like more than that. I think I am probably depressed, well duh some of you say, but seriously I have never had this problem where I couldn't just force myself to snap out of it.

I am still trying to snap out of it but failing and that seems to make the problem worse. I am also sick again. I had bronchitis the first week of the year and spent 10 days on Augmentin and thought I was mostly over it. But I went on a trip with my youth group that meant 7.5 hours on the bus to DC and then 10 hours mostly outside in the cold (about 19) and then another 7.5 hours on the bus back home. During this time I slept about 90 minutes in 30 minute increments. I left home at 8:30 on Sunday night and arrived home again at 2:30 in the morning on Tuesday and crashed HARD.

My husband also has bronchitis and a sinus infection that he picked up skiing in New Hampshire. He brought it home to me. I don't think I have another infection - coughing is not productive and mostly annoying. But I will try to hit the doctor in the morning and would like an inhaler or a nebulizer and some narcotic cough syrup. That and a weekend of sleeping should help.

And just praying that once I get my health back that the depression and the apathy might finally go away?

Hope you feel better and snap out of it soon.

WOW. Sorry to hear everyone is having a sick winter. Your husband is Skiing?! I guess Tysabri really is working wonders for him! :)

Well the cough is now productive. UGH woke up feeling like my chest filled up over night.

Calling the doctor when they open at 7:30 and hoping to get in this morning.

Also - Lanette - my husband did adaptive skiing in a sit ski with the VA Adaptive Sports program. No Tysabri has not working wonders - it is keeping things at bay but no miraculous recoveries. :(

Yeah, give yourself a break.
You've had a rough winter, not just with the cold weather and sickness.
Hopefully, the sun will come out and warm you both metaphorically and actually.

I hope you kick this cough-thing soon. Then you will have the energy to work on the apathy-thing. You may depressed; it is something to consider. Get well soon, and take good care of yourself.
