..and I mean really sick. Screwing around with this website today has been the only thing that seems to take my mind off of the fact that my eyes are swollen (they are also pink and crusty), I can hardly swallow, and my head feels like a balloon. When I was a child, I caught a fleeting glimpse... Oh wait, I'm getting off track. Sounds like some lyrics in there, but I believe those were about 'hands', right? My mind is not working well at the moment, so getting back to it, my nose is stuffed up and I can't stop coughing. I could go on, unfortunately.
Total suckage? With the meds I'm on, I can't take things like Dayquil or Nyquil, or even those nose sprays that work miracles. I can only OD on vitamin C, drink hot tea, and ride it out. I guess I could go to the doctor, which I'll probably be doing Monday if this doesn't start to get better, but I'm not one to cram a waiting room at the first sign of some sniffles (which these definitely are not).
I felt it all starting to collapse on Wednesday, when I had a dry cough, but I was hoping that it'd be one of those 'temporary' things that would go away. By 6:30pm, when I was leaving work that night (why was I there until 6 freakin' 30), I felt like I was high. I could barely walk, so driving wasn't the best of ideas (I don't remember how I got home). Thursday morning rolls around, I call in sick, stay in bed. Friday, I think I'm feeling better, so I go back to work (probably my biggest mistake yet). Now I sit here on a Saturday night, feeling like sh#t. Oh well, it is what it is. I'm hoping tomorrow brings better fortune & feeling. I'm betting that it can't get much worse, unless someone shoves a shiv in my side. Maybe that would feel better, I really don't know at this point.
