I have a strained/pulled/irritated muscle on one or a couple of my left ribs. 

I cannot take in a full breath. 

I want to curl up in a ball and die every time I cough/sneeze/lay on my side. 

The Doc told me it's basically like having temporary arthritis. It should last 2-4 weeks. And is only treatable with Tylenol and if that doesn't work, a steroid of some sort. 

On a more positive note, I was given cough syrup with codeine so that I'm not in pain every night while coughing. 

It's been over a month since I first developed this sinus infection. 

I love my body. 

I love children. 

That's the end of my complaints. 
I'm just thankful it wasn't pneumonia or lung cancer. 
Praise be. 

Happy breathing.
