Sickness Report

I've been sick for what seems like forever now.  Started out with a cold I caught from Monica over a week ago.  It was bad, but I managed to survive.  Your standard congested head, runny nose, cough your brains out sickness.

Then I went to Milo for Easter, and apparently caught a touch of the flu from someone.  I woke up this past Tuesday morning with a slightly scratchy throat.  By that afternoon, I felt like the walking dead.  Everyone at work kept telling me how bad I was looking.  

This one has to be a version of the flu. Started out with just a soar throat, and a general ache, but quickly progressed into severe hot and cold flashes.  (No, I'm not starting menopause.)  I had a hard time sleeping that night, couldn't get warm or cold enough.

I ended up staying in bed most of Wednesday and Thursday, but felt better enough to manage a full day of work on Friday.  By the end of Friday, I was ready to crawl back into bed.

Then I woke up this morning, feeling almost completely better!  I could breathe, didn't have the headache, etc.  But I couldn't hear out the left side of my head.  I still can't, actually.  My sinuses are so congested right now, I'm amazed my head hasn't exploded.  I took some Sudafed, as it usually helps with this, BUT IT FAILED ME!  It just isn't doing a damn thing.

On the up-side, this is a sign that I'm almost through the worst of it.  Getting my sinuses/ears plugged up usually means I'm almost better.  Or I have a sinus infection. I sure hope not, as my health insurance doesn't kick in till May 1st apparently.  Sigh.
