I'm like a walking zombie again . . . on a course of antibiotics. Not that you need to know, but I've been peeing nonstop. Today I figured out the reason I haven't slept well lately. And it's not because of nerves, but because I have a UTI. I wake up in the middle of the night to pee, every 1-3 hours.
Yes, I know - I have the immune system of a pre-schooler.
I get my thyroid ultrasound and bloodwork on Monday and see the endo on 12/31, so if there is an autoimmune disorder (or something else we won't talk about right now), I'll know then and it will shed some light on my constant battle with malaise. I still feel very confident and positive about it.
What I don't feel confident and positive about is my training, which continues to suffer because of my immune system (or lack thereof). Obviously, I'm not training with an infection - spinning hurts, swimming is bad, and running makes me have to pee more. Besides, the way MY body is, I'll end up making myself even sicker. And I know I can DO the marathon and WILL get training in, but it's not even HALF of the training I want so that I don't feel dead after the race.
Well, I'm off to finish up for the day and go home to consume massive amounts of fluids and sleep.
