It's early, much earlier than I ever like to be awake. But I'm doing better than yesterday when I was up at 3:30 AM and never did make it back to sleep.
Just when I thought I was about to make it out of winter without getting sick (except for that bout of food poisoning -- Damn your eyes Wendy's!), I come down with a sinus infection.
Took yesterday off work, and I'll be calling in sick today too, which should be something to celebrate, right? Especially since I last posted about how looking out the window at the lovely weather makes me depressed about having to work all day.
But truthfully I'd rather be at work than on the couch at home all day, especially when I'm not even able to get a peaceful night's rest. And I don't particularly want to eat anything. And I haven't bathed in days. And I only have one more industrial strength cold/sinus pill. They work really well, except that they are supposed to work for 12 hours, but they really only work for 6, and they threaten that you can't take more than 2 in 24 hours. I don't know what would happen if you do, but considering what happened to Heath Ledger, I think I'll try to stick to the directions. You have to go to the pharmacy for them, because apparently people make meth out of them or something. I'm not sure how they think having to ask at the counter is going to change that.
I'm debating whether I should go to the clinic. If I have a bacterial infection, I'd want to get antibiotics. Last year, about the same time, I had a sinus infection that persisted for two weeks, and I really should have gone to the doctor about that. But I've developed a really conservative opinion about going to the doctor. I wish we had socialized medicine. If we did, I wouldn't think twice about going, and I wouldn't have to pay for it. Works for the rest of the world.
I don't know, maybe I'll go tomorrow if I'm not feeling better.
