I feel like dog poop. I feel like I have a river of pus just resting on my lungs, my head is throbbing right between the eyes, I'm very nauseated, and my entire body just feels ick. That's right, it's time for my twice-a-year I'd-rather-staple-my-pinky-to-the-wall-than-go-through-this-again sinus infection.
I get this damn thing the beginning of every spring and the beginning of every fall now. When I was younger I never had sinus problems, but as my adult years go by it gets a little worse with each. Could be this lovely Louisiana pollution we breathe in everyday (do you have any idea what the cancer rate in this state is?). I don't think anyone who lives here has anything close to perfect sinuses.
So I'm utterly miserable right now. I've been feeling bad all week and knew it was my sinuses, but I woke up today feel absolutely wretched. I called in to take the day off and plan on calling my doc at 8am sharp. Hopefully, seeing it's the same-old-thing I always go in for, he'll just call me in some 'scrips (antibiotics & decongestant) and I won't have to go in.
It doesn't help that I was up from 2:30-4:00am with an upset stomach and suffering a panic attack - yeah didn't see that one comin'. It was one of the worst ones I've ever had, but I always get them if I wake up with a stomachache. So saying I didn't get the proper rest last night that was needed in my growing-sicker-by-the-day-state is an understatement.
So I'm going back to bed 'til 8 and we'll see where we go from there. Hope the rest of you are faring much better.
