The past few days have sucked wind big time. Oh, no wait..that was me trying to breath without hacking up a lung! Mr. Virus decided to play dirty by inviting his friend Señor Sinus Infection to the party. Bastards both of them. I had no choice but to call in the professionals.
Sitting in the Urgent Care lobby, I was instructed to wear a face mask to prevent the spread of my illness. Why was I the only one wearing this? Others were instructed the same as I...but I was the only one. Well, at least I wasn't breathing their germs! I filled out all the necessary paperwork, and had to state the reason for my visit.
"Probable sinus infection."
When it was time to finally see the doctor, he asked me, "so you think you have a sinus infection? what makes you think that."
"well, doc, waking up in the middle of the night feeling like someone punched me in the face was my first clue. Then the feeling of my teeth aching that keeps switching sides was another clue.."
He looked in my nose, down my throat and in my ears and gave me antibiotics. I really wish that it didn't take two hours for something that I knew I needed. However, he was kind and gave me samples because I don't have insurance. I really have to get some insurance!!
So, the antibiotics are doing their job. Mr. Virus and Senor Sinus Infection are putting up a good fight, but they don't stand a chance in hell. But, God, I'm tired! Hope you all are having a nice weekend. I start school again tomorrow.
