Wish me luck. I’ll probably need it.
I am headed to the walk-in clinic early this afternoon to see if there is anything they can do about the sinuses and deep lung coughing. Sleep last night was tough to come by and with a vacation coming in less than a week I am looking to kick this thing rather quickly.
Why do I need luck? Have you been to a walk-in? LOL
It takes a demonstration of extreme patience and tolerance.
It takes forever (typically) to get seen by a doc and, when you actually do see a doc it typically isn’t even a doc but a PA (physician’s assistant). I have found that care is a little suspect at that point. Plus, add in that a walk-in generally tries to rush you out once you’re in (it seems to take forever to see anyone and then once you do, you wonder why it took so long based on how long you actually got to see someone).
So, I am going to be brave and endure with the hope of some relief.
Family was over last weekend.
They knowingly came over with colds and the little ones openly hacked, snorted, and touched everything in sight.
Now I am sick.
It’s irritating. Really.
Why do people feel the need to expose others to their illness? Just stay home. I don’t care if you’re a relative or not. I don’t want you around.
I’ll take care to do the same.
I am going to go rest. Because typing is exhausting. Reading hurts my eyes.
I am just generally irritable…but then that isn’t all that unusual. I am that way most of the time. It is just to a higher degree today.
Stuffed to the max.
It appears today I will be a mouth breather…
Woke up with a stuffed nose and a tight throat. I think we all know where this is going. I am about to enter the land of flu/cold season.
Thankfully I am telecommuting (today and tomorrow) and not going to expose someone at the office. But, if it isn’t gone in a day or so, then I’ll be burning some sick days.
How are you feeling today?
Not that serious of a post today.
I am home sick because the office crud has finally caught up to me and I am feeling under the weather.
Headache. Stuffy nose. Run down.
It’s fine, right? I should have gone into work, right?
Anyway, simple post today just to whine about health for a moment.
How about you? Do you tough it out and go to work or do you stay at home the first inkling of a cold?
These are not two things that will win you friends, either in a crowd of strangers or at work.
I have now been dealing with a cold/flu for a week now. The fever and aches didn’t last long at all, but the congestion is hanging on like a baby opossum hangs onto it’s mom.
I think I have hacked up about 2.5 gallons of something from my lungs and snorted or blown about 6.7 gallons of snot from my sinuses. Pretty picture, I know.
Supposedly I am getting better. That’s my unprofessional opinion because I haven’t seen a professional.
Here’s to another dose of cold meds and being that annoying co-worker hacking and snorting in the corner of the office…
Yesterday was all about “changing directions” since what I expected to be doing was different than what I actually ended up doing.
Today, well, today is just plain derailed.
Didn’t sleep well last night.
Yeah, sick day all day. There might even be one tomorrow.
This is not what I had planned and it isn’t going to help the productivity.
The train left the station this week, but it certainly didn’t get very far.
