Sorry, but I just have to complain.. I am going stir crazy. I missed the Garmin winter party, I slept through the Superbowl, this is my second day away from work and I still feel like absolute crap. I have taken a huge aresonal of medicine, it’s just that nothing is working! So far:
2 bags of lozenges
1/2 bottle chloroseptic
1 bottle Nyquil (yes, the entire bottle)
5 bottles of gatoraide
Half of a z-pack
I have also tried nasal saline, nasal gel, mentholatum, shower soothers, tylenol, dayquil, and zycam cold/flu. Right now my stomach is more full of medicine than food because all I have eaten the past few days besides some popsicles is half a can of pears and some rice noodles. It sure isn’t easy finding gluten-free sick food. Even chicken and rice has wheat starch in it, believe it or not.
If I could describe my throat, I would say it feels like I sucked on hot coals until I had a nice, pussy burn, and then I drank some battery acid to singe off any remining cells, and every time I swallow little razor blades are cutting through it all. And when I cough.. oh, I’d rather be dead.
Not to worry though, the doctor tells me. Its been going around, and will run its course in 7-10 days. I had this two weeks ago, he tells me, it will get worse before it gets better…TEN DAYS? Worse than swallowing razor blades and battery acid? I hope he has no idea what he is talking about.
I am going to go watch some bad morning television shows and cough up some phlegm.
