i feel almost sexy this morning, as i ready myself for a journey back out into the Real World. I still have remnants of the plague, causing lack of hearing in my left ear, a phlegmy throat, and brain-deadness, so i don't feel sexy in that regard. my hair is akimbo, as i took a shower right before bed and went to sleep with short, wet hair. and i'm certainly not wearing any make up. never that!

but i managed to drop 10 lbs while i was sick. my clothes fit me a bit differently. i feel cool in a very nerdy way. my hair is messy, but i stuck several barrettes in it, hoping that it makes me look emo-sheik, instead of lazy-lopsided.

i'm dreading today something fierce. i still have that sort of thing that i had in june of last year, where i have little to no hearing, yet what i DO hear is supersonic and HURTS. for example. right now it sounds as if i'm typing with my ear at the receiving end of a megaphone, with the keyboard on the other side. i shudder to think what working RETAIL, with squeeling kids, will be like this evening.

luckily for me, i still have half a bottle of antibiotics left over from when it happened the LAST time. (if you will remember, it turned out that i had a very severe sinus infection - so severe that it had turned my eardrum from curving this way ")" to curving this way "(", hence the super-sonic hearing and massive pain.)

now. i'm a massive fan for following the doctor's orders and taking all of what they give you, completely as directed, no matter how much better i felt. welp, because of going to the free clinic here in town, instead of giving me one that i needed to take one or two times a day, they provided me with one that i had to take FOUR times a day. after a few days, when the illness wasn't as prevailent in my life anymore, i sort of kept... forgetting... to take it. yanno, busy schedule and all. *cough*

in looking my symptoms up online: white pus-y (not pussy) sores on the back of my throat, massive fever and difficulty swallowing, chills, etc., it all pointed towards having a bacterial illness (i.e. strep) instead of a viral, hence needing antibiotics anyway.

anyway. so that's my justification.

i can hear massive wind and rain smacking up against the livingroom window. due to the fact that for one: i do not have my complete strength back yet, two: i am taking more books to school today because of actually having homework now, having to carry my work shirt seperate, plus other things that i hadn't carried before, and three: having to lug all that how far on foot, and in wind and rain and low 40 degree weather?

ugh. i'm so very much not looking forward to ANY trek i need to make today. it had been oh so very long since i could remember being warm AND dry (maybe adding to just how sick i became?) and thoroughly enjoyed two days of perfect temperature (when my brother hadn't snuck over and turned off the heater, that is.)

hope you all have a fabulous day and a wonderful weekend.

reading back in all my posts where i'm whining about being sick, it makes me feel like i'm turning into a hypochondriac like my mother.

though back then i DID have nasty sores on my throat. and i'm not imagining this headache.

or AM i? dun dun DUNNNN.

Ugh. I had something similar happen with a sinus infection a few months back, except that is ruptured the eardrum which while being massively unpleasant did at least help drain the fluid some. I hope you feel better. :)

Wow. Somehow I posted anonymous just a moment ago. Sorry, wtf was that about. Anywayz, I am sorry you are feeling better. I had that happen a few months back, except my eardrum ruptured. That sucked majorly, but it did at least drain the fluid a little. Hope you feel better soon.

egads, i can't imagine RUPTURING your eardrum.

hee, and you said 'i am sorry you are feeling better'. ;)

it sucks that our ears are so small, yet so touchy and if anything goes awry with them that it throws our entire being out of whack.

jerk ears.
