Just 30 seconds before I began typing this entry, I was sitting cross-legged on the couch, clutching a mug filled with boiling, hot water, cupping the top with my nose shoved inside... I was letting the steam come up... It was the most glorious I've felt all day.
In other words, this sinus infection is a BITCH.
You see I get these a lot but this is a KILLER. It's just the right side of my face, wherein my right eye and my nose seem to be waged in a battle. Who will burst off my skull first? Only time will tell.
Things I am therefore thankful for: steamy showers, steaming cups of water, Gatorade, Augmentin, NyQuil, soup and Law and Order reruns -- BTW, there are like 300 a day of those on TV. God bless America and NBC Universal, my friends.
This infection hits me just as I am recovering from a kidney infection. That was a ton of fun. Ever had one of those? The aching back is the worst of it -- I couldn't sleep, couldn't sit for too long OR stand for too long...
And remember how I had the flu not that long ago? Also a party.
And in case you don't remember, not too long before THAT, I had - you guessed it! - a sinus infection. Coupled with laryngitis. Marvelous
So really, it's been a swell couple of months. I remain, as always, the personification of healthy living.
At least it's a three-day weekend. Even more time to sit on the couch and bemoan my state.
