I'm starting to feel the stress.

Between work and planning my wedding, there is not much else that fills my schedule and now I am sick. My sister thinks it has to do with my sinuses since my ears and throat hurt and my nose is running. I wouldn't doubt it. My mother told me some things I should take that might help and it seems like everything I take/do makes only about 1/2 of my symptoms go away.
The hardest part is that work is going to be crazy starting these next few weeks with the new season of sports coming in (i.e. tennis, spring soccer, softball, baseball). My boss keeps telling me to only work half days until I feel better and I've already done that twice. Yet, there is a huge part of me that feels guilty leaving work a few hours early everyday. I need the money and the work needs to be done, ya know? So, tomorrow I'm going to try working a full day and see how my body (namely my head) takes it.
Anyway, back to the title of my entry... I'm pretty sure that my illness is due to my stress. I visited the dentist a few days ago and he said that my TMJ is only going to get worse from the stress of planning my wedding and I've already seen that happen. I don't grind my teeth, I clench them. I find myself rubbing my jaw often because of the pain.
So it starts... The stresses of getting married. I almost wish I could just get married tomorrow and not have to worry about everything. I think most of my stress comes from the fact that I'm planning my wedding from a state away. That was my choice, though. :/ Tough...

  1. Kels, it may just be sinus and stress related, but if you have insurance I would go get checked, especially if it gets too the point that it hurts to swallow anything. I say this because my girls have had strep recently and you've been around them. I didn't think they were contagious at that time, but I could be wrong. I'm sorry. I really hope this isn't the case, but I thought it was just a bad cold when I had it, and so I worry. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help with anything, planning, tissues, soup, etc. Love ya.
