I Can't Believe It...

I just can't believe it...

I've got the plague again.

I was joking with my mom on the phone tonight about having the Plague when she comes to visit, but I really actually have it again.

I suspect it started last Thursday, when I gave a talk about blindness at a pre-school, and one of the little fellas was crawling with kid cold germs. Three days later, like clockwork, I got a killer sore throat, couldn't seem to drink enough, been blowing my nose like crazy and sneezing like a fiend.

And I am seriously cranky. It probably didn't help that I was pressed into serious physical labor on Saturday and Sunday. When I got up Sunday morning, I had vertigo (always fun) and the clicking has returned to my ears.

Grand. Just grand.

Allergist you say? It is to laugh. Our allergist just charged us over $200 in a "shortfall" with the insurance company for Michael's visit. Not bloody likely.

I'm keeping Kleenex, Sudafed, Cepacol, and Vicks in business this year. I should get a commission.

Blargh. Back to bed.

2 pearl(s) of wisdom:

That stuff's going around.

I've been more or less sick for about a week now, but Seraphim has come down with bronchitis, topped with a sinus infection and ear infection a la mode.

Here's hoping the meds work on her. And for you. (Although I don't have much faith in OTC meds .... Syrup of Placebo, I like to call 'em)

Get well!

Ugh. I hope you feel better soon. I hate not being able to breath through my nose. Make sure and have some comfort food for dinner. :)
