Will somebody shoot me...PLEASE?

Thanks for all of the well wishes yesterday!

I still feel horrible. The only improvement over yesterday is that my head no longer feels like someone has split it in two with an axe or whacked me across the eyes with a steel beam. However, my head is so stuffed that breathing through my nose is impossible, and my ears feel like cotton is stuffed in them. I'm just glad that my ears aren't hurting. And I still sound like a barking dog.
I went to work simply because it is easier to be there than it is to take a day off. In my classes, we went over the material they had to read yesterday, and then I gave them an independent assignment. The students are usually good about cooperating when they know we don't feel well.

The doctor did give me a prescription for a Z pack yesterday "just in case" I get worse. I haven't decided whether or not to have it filled. If this truly is a cold, taking an antibiotic won't do one bit of good, and it would just be money wasted. On the other hand, if it is a sinus infection, I'm sitting here suffering until I begin to actually blow green snot out of my nose when I could be taking something to help.

Like I said in my post yesterday, this doctor was NOT the one I really wanted to see, but the one I did want to see isn't seeing walk-ins this week. (They alternate weeks with walk-ins.) Had I known that ahead of time, I would have tried to make an appointment. I've seen this doc once before when I was having back spasms. I had dealt with those for about two weeks before I broke down and went to the doctor. She made me feel like the only reason I was there was for drugs. I am SO not one to take drugs just to take drugs. I don't even take stuff for headaches unless they are killer.

I certainly hope that this crud goes away...SOON! I'm not a very good sick person, am I Mom?

Have a GREAT day!

I'm getting it. I'm not happy. Clearly it's your fault for breathing on me.

I'd beat you but I'm too damn tired. ;)

Hugs!

No, dear daughter, you would not win the Most Likeable Patient Award. You just never have dealt with feeling rotten. Come to think of it not too many people do. Get the Z-Pack filled. Dr. Bush once said that if you blew green it was an infection. So it turns out to be "only" a cold and you wasted money. It (the cold) could always turn into an infection. My mantra is better safe than sorry. Get better soon.
