Hey Drink -
First off, I understand about the hubby thing...mine is a union sheet metal worker. Though he has never been hurt at work (ThankGod), he has had to deal with layoffs over the past few years, and he gets CRAZY when he's not working. He'll do a TON of stuff around here (has built decks, make cabinets..good for me...lol), but its not the same. He can get VERY discouraged and depressed, almost. Hopefully somehting will break soon, and as PIP said, there is always a plan, and probably a better job down the road for him...
The yeast problem I know a good amount about. First off, you should be taking pro-biotics (acidopholus) sp. which you can get at any local drugstore. All this does is replenish the normal bacterial flora to your system. Basicaly, when you are on anti-biotics, the medicine kills all the bad bacteria causing the infection. What happens though, is it also kills the GOOD bacteria. The good bacteria eats extra cndida, or yeast in your system. Thus, with no good bacteria, the yeast becomes overgrown in our systems. This leads to vaginal yeast infections, but we can also have an overload of yeast in our intestines, which can then get into our bloodstream. This leads to symptoms of fatigue, general malaise, lethargy, etc. When you start the probiotics, it replenishes the GOOD bacteria, which will start to take care of the extra yeast, thus balancing out the overgrowth in the intestines. As Oluwa said, as well, an OTC vaginal yeast treatment will help with the symptoms in that area as well. Yogurt is also a good source of probiotics, and you should always have some on hand when taking anti-biotics.
Good luck and let us know how you make out!!
