illness/pain

So, I had pneumonia for a week and a half.  Took a whole week off work.  This weekend, I couldn't stand it, I just HAD to mow my yard.  Wore a mask and had my niece over to help.  I mowed the perameter and was going to let her finish up.  Well, she didn't catch on to the zero turn radius idea fast enough to suit me.  I couldn't stand it, should have just gone inside, but no, I made her get off and I finished.  Paid for it the rest of the night, and today my BACK IS KILLING ME!!!!  I just made a chiropractor appointment for this afternoon.  Sick to death of feeling sick.  Feeling sorry for myself.  Thought I was going to go out of my mind the week I was off.  Besides having very little human contact, Nothing tasted, smelled or felt right!  All I could do was sleep.  Woke up cold or sweaty, etc.  Never been that sick.  Glad to be at work today except for the pain.  My people missed me.  They're still talking about me singing for the banquet the 31st!  (sweet)  That was about the third day I was so sick, and I can barely remember it.  Still can't believe I got pneumonia AFTER I quit smoking.  Just bizarro.  Started with a sinus infection I ignored.  I had been doing a lot of walking, on the weekends, and then had added two days/week.  Although I knew my snot had turned green, I really wasn't feeling bad, but then I got the monster headache.  Went and got some sinus medicine and felt it that day move from my sinuses to my chest.  Now my doctor has writtten me an antibiotic prescription for when I first know I have an infection, to start immediately.  I hope I can prevent this happening again.  She also recommended I get the pneumo vax once I'm all well.  Anyway, sure missed reading the posts and responding.  Missed my on-line pals here at DS and hope I can make it thru the rest of the week without incident, once my back is together again.  BLAHHHHH!   ARRRRRRgggggg!  I'm not a good patient.....
