I am having one of the most horrible days of my life.
To recap, yesterday morning I woke up with a tiny sore throat and felt like my nose was getting stuffy again. I said casually to Alex, "Weird, I feel like I am getting sick again. That doesn't happen, does it?" I drove him to the airport, said goodbye, went to Jamba juice, went to work, and within an hour I was so sneezy and miserable that they sent me home.
I was supposed to write a big final paper but the pressure in my nose was so horrible that literally all I could muster up the strength to do was drag myself to Eia's room with my favorite fleece blanket to watch the Harry Potter ABC Family weekend for like 5 hours with her, because she's sick too. Then I finally went to bed around 11, but woke up feeling hot and uncomfortable at 2 AM, and didn't fall back to sleep after that. Around 5 AM I tried to go to the bathroom but made it as far as my bedroom floor. I layed there for about 20 minutes, and then finally crawled back into bed after I got too cold. Around 7 AM I admitted defeat and called my mom, crying. I think it finally hit me that I was REALLY. SICK. and all alone in Seattle with no one to take care of me and just really needed my mom.
Lucky she works at an Ear, Nose and Throat clinic so at 9 she had my Dad pick me up and take me in to see one of the Doctors. They looked in my ears and took my blood pressure and stuck a hot thing in my nose and declared me sick with a pretty bad sinus infection. I've never had one before. They gave me all sorts of pills and sent me home. My dad asked the Doctor if I was going to make it and she said, "She'll make it to the door at least." Witty. <_<
Now I am back home. I'm sweaty. I'm uncomfortable. I had to swallow 5 pills this morning and have to take another one tonight with dinner. I miss Alex. I want food but I am too tired to go downstairs and get it. I got an extension on my paper (tomorrow night) but I have no desire/energy to start it. Maybe tomorrow morning.
Also, today was my last birth class and I had to miss it. :( That's been the worst part of all of this. I love that class. I emailed my teacher and she said not to worry about it at all, and to take care of myself, but I WANTED to be there. Sigh.
This basically sucks. It's the last week of school. I am missing everything. I am not used to being this sick. Alex is gone when I need him. And people aren't really buying hard copies of Spattergroit, and I hope it's not because they've forgotten about us/don't like it. Maybe everyone is using iTunes. I wont know for 3 months.
good on paper
