Just have to vent my worries

Okay so I'm SO frustrated tonight. This isn't all necessarily about TTC but it's all related in a way. So this week started with a stomach virus. The virus I think only lasted for about 24 hours but I felt horrible for days after finally realizing that I have thrush. Well it's in my throat and my esophagus and possibly every where else in my GI tract. It could be why I was sick at the beginning of the week but I'm pretty sure that was just a virus. Well most of this I already mentioned but what's making all of this worse is that they can't treat me for it properly even if it is every where or if they can I don't know how. You can't take some of the meds they give you when you're pregnant or trying so I'm afraid this will interfere with TTC. I can take the oral meds. You just drink it and it goes through your system but since I've had a fever and body aches with it it could be every where. My usual doctor who deals with this stuff is out of the country for a year and I have to see a new one on Wednesday and I'm not sure he's going to be as good as my other doctor.

On top of this, Wednesday I was getting a package from outside and it was pretty big and heavy and I couldn't see my feet and I stepped funny on the step up into my kitchen aggravating my achilles tendon which I have pulled and torn numerous times over the years so I'm in a stupid moon boot again. I was hoping I could avoid it but I can barely put weight on it. So I've got at least a few days in the stupid boot full time. I didn't get to work at all last week and the pay period ends this week so I really need to work but with the moon boot and the body overrun with thrush I don't know what to do. I've got an appointment Wednesday already and a schedule work day Tuesday but I'm also supposed to get blood work for the RE and go back to him for more tests this week and so is DH.

Sometimes I think TTC is like a sport or something and is just a total disaster. I feel like my body is falling apart and I'm not even pregnant yet. I'm worrying about how we'll deal with all of this when I am pregnant and this crap happens since I'm sure it will. My life is such a disaster sometimes. Ugh!!!!! I just want to get back to work and be able to exercise and do my usual schedule and it's just all kinds of screwed up. I can barely walk with this stupid boot on. If I can't work out really good I at least get 10k steps a day and I couldn't even make that happen today. Sorry for the extremely long vent. Just frustrated tonight.

I'm so sorry Leah! It seems like everything happens at once sometimes doesn't it? I guess that's why they say "when it rains it pours! I'm so sorry! If it doesn't get better I would start going to different doctors maybe someone out there has more answers? Do they have you taking vitimans and stuff? I know since I've started taking vitimin D I am hardly ever sick anymore and when I am it goes away so fast. I know it's different for you since you are immune compromised but maybe it can still help?

Thanks so much for the hugs everyone! Gina I am on Vitamin D and it's because I had a deficiency. I'm also on B-12 shots since I was deficient in that too. I take acidophalus all the time too because of being on antibiotics a lot and trouble with the yeast. I'm also supposed to be starting zinc to help with my sinus issues more though they've been better lately. My guess is that's the next infection to come...it'll totally be a sinus infection. At least those are predictable most of the time. I am feeling a little better today though with the thrush. I actually have a little bit of an appetite and not quite so many body aches...so far. Yesterday started out better too so who knows. This can't last forever right?
