I’ve been sick since Thursday. It started off as a sore throat that got worse throughout the day. I hardly slept Thursday night and by Friday morning, it was clear that I would be not only useless at work, but also carry a high risk of infecting other people.
Morah took me to the clinic in the hopes that it was strep throat, which is wasn’t. You’re probably thinking, “who hopes for strep throat?” Well, I do. If it had been strep throat, that would have meant that it was bacterial and the doctor could have prescribed me antibiotics, which would have actually done something. Since it’s viral, all I could do was wait it out. Ironically (or coincidentally? I still have trouble with those two), there was a poster in the exam room talking about how antibiotics are not always the answer.
After being sick all weekend, I went to work on Monday, but only stayed for about two and half hours before deciding to work from home for the rest of the day. I worked from home again on Tuesday, which helped considerably.
Now I’m back at work, which is going pretty well. I just blew my nose (I won’t get too detailed, but I will say that I feel much, much clearer now), which caused one of my ears to plug up, which is making me feel a little dizzy. It never ends, right? So here I am, sitting at my desk, trying to yawn and unclog my ear.
