SICK.

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.

Bye.

Being sick is never a fun time.
It sucks that you have a bad sinus infection. Just thinking about that makes me feel bad. Pills aren't fun either, and it SUCKS that you had to miss that last class. Get better soon, Kristina! :)

Callidora said...

I hope you start feeling better soon, Kristina.! And Eia, I hope Eia gets better, too. I am going to buy Pretty in Pink (and Green) and Spattergroit tomorrow after I put my check in the bank.
:o)

Nat said...

Feel better. Drink lots of tea and get plenty of rest. :)

Sarah said...

Ohhh I'm so sorry Kristina! Feel better soon!

Kristina,
Sinus Infections are no fun - it feels like sickness is cheating in a way. You were already sick, so why should you have to deal with something else? I'm sad for you that Alex had to leave already and that you missed your class - it sounded really interesting. I've been listening to the copies of both Spattergroit and All Caps that I got at LeakyCon and I'm so addicted... they're the soundtrack to my life right now. So glad you included 'Durmstrang Boy' and 'Saved' is a phenomenal song.
I hope you and Eia feel better very soon!

I hope you feel better!

I would buy Spattergroit, but my dad doesn't like Harry Potter and I'm not allowed to order stuff off the internet without his approval. Sorry. :-(

I would if I could but I can't.
Once I graduate high school, I will buy every Parslemouth CD. I promise. Unfortunately that's not for two years.... :*-(

Indigo said...

Aw, I hope you feel better,

That was an excess of emoticons to cheer you up...

Ariel said...

I intend to buy a hard copy of the CD! I just have to check up on my funds first. I am thinking of starting a separate bank account to store money that is only to be used on Potter-related stuff. Good idea?

Sinus infection are terrible. Take care of your ears. When ear aches get mixed up in sinus infections, it's a sad state of affairs.
Most importantly, feel better!

Awww I'm sorry you're so sick Kristina. I hope you feel better really really soon!

And about Spattergroit, I'm planning on buying it at Azkatraz because I don't have a credit card to get it online so don't worry, I';m sure you'll sell tons there as well as on itunes.

Katy said...

Ugh, I feel your pain. It's my fourth day of summer vacation and I'm in my basement, trying to keep my lung in my throat. I don't know what happened, but somehow I caught leakyflu even though I was thousands of miles away. I bet MJ's spreading it through twitter or something.

When I'm sick, I watch the Office. I watch every disc, all the way through: every commentary, every deleted scene, every blooper reel... it helps to have all the seasons on DVD. :)

Feel better! I'm in the process of buying Spattergroit... next paycheck, I promise. :)

The Vagabond said...

I'm so sorry, Kristina!! I didn't realise that you were this sick. I wish there was something I could do. I'm going to buy your CD as soon as I get my paycheck which should be really soon. I hope that that at least makes you feel better. Virtual hug!

Brad said...

All that snoggin' took it's toll, and it sounds like you've worn yourself out over the last week. Hope you feel better soon.

Jordiekins said...

I can't buy it YET, but I promise to buy it as soon as I get iTunes money.

*hugs from a distance so that I don't get sick*

VicMorrowsGhost said...

Wow my little sore throat is nothing compared to your PLAGUE!

You missed the last birthing class? Oh noes! You'll never get to find out where babies actually come from! D:

Kristen said...

I hope you feel better soon! I saw the happy birthday lauren video from Five Awesome Girls and I applaud you for your effort : ) Hopefully tomorrow/today/soonish, you will feel better.

My captcha: Taking.....their not even trying anymore :p

Madame Suede said...

Sounds horrible Kristina! Hope the meds work so you get better soon!

I bought your album on iTunes yesterday, and it's amazing! :D
Although it showed up as a partial album so I had to get each song separately. 10 songs right?

Sarah said...

Ah, I do hope you feel better soon, Kristina.

And I have to ship it over here, which is one reason why I haven't bought a copy. Also, I can't buy anything online with my card, and my parents don't like to giv out their credit-card number.

Awh man look after yourself & get well soon!

Welcome to the wonderful world of sinus infections, Kristina... After I had it the first time, it kept coming back every time I would have a normal cold, but here is what helped me: 1) Never blow your nose, ever - it may not sound nice, but inhaling the stuff is the way to go in order not to blow it all into your sinuses; 2) as soon as you feel you might get a cold, use a neti pot twice a day to rinse your nose. Again, it does not sound fun, but if you know it will save you from sinus infections, you will actually enjoy it :-)

Maddy said...

Aw, I hope you feel better soon, Kristina <3 By the way, I bought your album of off iTunes last night, and I absolutely love it! :)

Catherine said...

Nobody has forgotten you! I'm a big fan of iTunes myself, but with Spattergroit being a partial album and what not. (that's really weird), I was going to buy a hard copy. Of course I just spent $65 at Lauren's tour last night, so it might be a while because I like to have some money so I can eat and stuff.

Katy said...

I hope you feel better soon.
Yes, sinus infections suck worse than Kristen Stewart's acting, which is saying something.

seurat2 said...

Sorry to hear you've been that sick Kristina, like everyone said take care of yourself and feel better soon.

As for the cd, I'd happily buy a hard copy but I won't make online payments (i would spend waaay too much money otherwise). If you could provide a mailing address, a postal box would be safest obviously, then I would be gladd to buy a couple of your cd's.

Sarah Arant said...

I'm sorry you are so sick. =(

I was planning on ordering a hard copy of Spattergroit, but I have absolutely NO money right now. As soon as I come across some, I plan on ordering it though. And not off iTunes.
I hate job hunting. It is the biggest pain. . .

<3

MegTao said...

Awww you poor girl. I hope you feel better soon. I may just have to use my shiny new VISA to buy a hard copy of your CD...I'll talk with my parents and see if they go for it...

the_who_ru said...

I really hope you get better soon. I know how horrible it feels to be heavily ill in the summer, especially when you've got important work to do.

I fully intend to get physical copies of both Spattergroit and All Caps, but it will involve lots of pleading and big-eyedness on my behalf as I will have to get my parents to get it for me, or someone who has the right kind of card for Kunaki! Good luck with the paper and getting better. <3

Rachel said...

Oh Kristina! I'm so sorry you're ill. Sinus infections are no fun at all. I hope Eia gets better too. I'm sorry you missed your birthing class. I know how much you loved it. Drink tea with honey and rest. It helps. [=

Anna said...

i hope you feel better very soon :/ i totally know how you feel.

i realllly want a copy of spattergroit but right now i have ZERO money and all i want is spattergroit, and chameleon circuit... don't worry i will buy them eventually!

Anna said...
