*sigh* So, I don't know what happened, but I do know I am sick sick sick sick sick, and not the fun kind of sick (as in perverted) either! Sunday I'm fine, everything normal. Then Monday I woke up and discovered my throat was sore, I couldn't finish my bacon, that is a BAD sign, cause me likey bacon. Still, not the intense blinding pain that comes with trying to swallow, just an annoying scratch.

By Monday night I still wasn't completely good, but I thought a good nights sleep would fix me right up.

Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, WRONG! Sleep is making things worse, seriously! Every freakin' time I go to sleep I wake up feeling worse than before! But I don't feel good enough right now to give up sleeping - tis a nasty cycle.

Monday night, I slept for maybe an hour, and then I was waking up every time I tried to swallow (usually about every hour on the hour, though a couple times it was a half hour)because it really (and I do mean really) hurt to do so. Plus as I sleep my mouth dries out, which is much less than helpful in this case. Though normally it is a plus cause it means I don't drool in my sleep.

So, yesterday (Tuesday) I go buy a truck-load of medicine. I finally managed to scarf down breakfast, it only took just over an hour to eat it. Then while I'm cruising the net I start to feel like I'm going to pass out, so I go offline and rest. Again I wake an hour later feeling even worse.

And that was when I discovered my good friend Advil, which was not one of the medicines I ran out and bought. I took an Advil and within an hour I was feeling like myself again...

More on the woes of being me!Collapse )
