Whenever I write something like that, I automatically think of the Staind song. Don’t hate; that was a great song back in the day. Honestly, Staind has a number of really solid songs, as far as I’m concerned. I know many people who would disagree with me…do I care? Not really.
People don’t love me for my awesome taste. People love me because I’m a nice person. I think.
So yeah, it’s been awhile, and I don’t have too much to share. Only because I’ve been on-and-off sick for the past few weeks. And every time I started to feel a little bit better, and I’d trying doing something normal (working out, going out, etc.) I’d end up sick again. That whole 2 steps forward, 1 step back sort of thing.
On Saturday night, I was actually really scared. My tonsils (I guess?) were getting increasingly swollen. It was so painful to swallow, and my ears hurt so bad. I remembered what it was like as a kid, having ear aches. I remember my parents taking me to the emergency room when I was 4 years old for that.
I felt like that all over again. Rubbing my ears and crying.
I drank so much tea, ate more ice cream than I have in YEARS, and even munched on a raw potato, because the internet told me to.
It felt as if my throat was almost spasming every so often. I was in a lot of pain and terrified. I almost went to the Emergency Room, but I decided to try and suck it up until the morning. I went to an Urgent Care place the second it opened – and I was in and out in an hour! Pretty impressive. They were a nice bunch, and I got a prescription for antibiotics and for ear drops. Apparently I have a pretty bad case of sinusitis, plus redness, swelling and fluid in my ears.
So far, I’m doing okay. My ears still hurt a little, but not as bad as it was. My throat has also improved a little bit.
Exciting stuff, huh? Aren’t you glad that I killed 15 minutes of time to type this out? Aren’t you glad you killed about 3 minutes reading it.
Geez, my life is kinda boring.
