I've been suffering from sinus pressure, a stuffy nose, lack of energy, and sneezing for over 2 weeks.
It gets worse, it gets better, it goes away. It gets worse, it gets better, it goes away.
You get the picture.
Yesterday I woke up in actual pain. I tried to use my neti pot before work and not ONE drop of water went through my sinuses.
Coincidentally, yesterday was also the day I finally called my doctor.
Here are some comments she made about my health:
- "Your ears are NOT happy"
- "UGH" face while looking in my throat
- "Oh wow" while looking up my nose
- "Aren't you in pain?"
She said, "Um yah, you're sick. You need to stay home for the rest of the week. You are VERY contagious right now."
So anyway, I stayed home today and I'm really glad I did. I fell asleep last night without brushing/flossing or washing my face. And I've been out of it all day. Super dizzy. Super stuffy. Super tummy-achey.
And since I don't have anything fun to blog about, I took pictures of the sick ward for you.
My night stand. COVERED with germ-filled Kleenexes and a Subway cup full of water. You can't even see my alarm clock because it's covered with Kleenexes and the current Twilight book ...
My bed. I was surrounded with everything important today: my computer, the remote control, Kleenexes, water, Twilight ...
I'll be home again tomorrow.
I'm sure I'll have another super profound post to write like this one.
