Hey y’all. I’ve been fighting a nasty sinus infection for the past 4-5 days. The doctor put me on these giant horse pill antibiotics. I have been hospitalized for pneumonia in the past and have had upper respiratory issues my whole life, so I’m assuming they took the “let’s nuke this thing from space” approach.

I’m actually feeling a lot better today, but I was just curious, since my internet research is telling me that there isn’t definitive proof of this across the board- do antibiotics usually make you feel really fatigued? I’ve slept something like 12-14 hours a night for the past couple of days, and I’m still sitting here totally exhausted. I can barely keep my head up through a movie, much less catch up on housework like I was hoping I’d be able to.

I know my body is still fighting off sickness and that’s got to be contributing, but ugh this is so frustrating. I want to be able to spend my days off being productive and having fun, not glued to the couch.
