Where have I been? Update!

If you have ever had a sinus infection and a broken blood vessel in your eye - you might know how terrible I felt this past week! If you follow me on twitter or instagram - you may already know that last Thursday - I found a HUGE red circle in my eye known as subconjunctival hemorrhage - it was the first time this had ever happened to me, but it was freaking scary as YOU KNOW WHAT! Thankfully, it is not something to worry about, and isn't painful at all - it just looks horrendous and believe it or not - I still have it. It takes about 2 weeks to go away :(

Has this ever happened to anyone? 

Forward to Monday night after I spent an amazing weekend in DC with my friends - my throat started feeling scratchy and I drowned myself in airborne, vitamin C, and chamomile tea - I was determined to beat what I thought was a cold. Well - I woke up Tuesday morning with the worst sore throat I have ever had - seriously - I do not wish it on my worst enemy. I literally felt like I had knives in my throat and it was just terrible! I also had a fever on Tuesday night and then Wednesday morning. I dragged myself to the doctors on Wednesday and turns out - I had a sinus infection. So thankful my doctor gave me antibiotics because I feel like a complete brand new person today! Thank the LORD! I had been religious about taking vitamin c every single day and forgot to bring them with me on my trip to Atlanta & DC so I am sure that is what brought my immune system down. I used to get sick very often before I started taking vitamin C daily, so now I will never stop taking it again!
