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.
