Ok, I'm STILL sick. And worse than before. I'm waiting to hear from the doctor and hopefully get an appointment this morning. I don't have my own doctor down here, so this is my mom's doc, but I really wish I was seeing my doctor in St. Louis. She is great.
Whatever the hell is wrong with me sucks. I actually think it might be either bronchitis or possibly even pneumonia. The worst part is the coughing; it's keeping me up most of the night. My voice is wheezy and scratchy. I have no energy. My entire face is leaky.
I wasn't feeling great when I went to work yesterday morning, but at that point it just felt like a minor annoyance--which is how it has felt for a few days. As the day went on, I felt progressively worse. And by last night, I was certain death was about to come knocking on my door. Naturally, I had to cancel plans last night, and that made me sad because I was really looking forward to going out. I'm supposed to work from 5pm until 2am tonight, but I can't imagine anything less feasible than that right now.
This is my current wish list:
-anti-biotics (or something to make me feel better asap)
-new fuzzy slippers, as mine are getting old and the fuzz has flattened and only new fuzzy slippers could possibly make all this more tolerable.
-hot and sour soup from the Chinese take-out down the street
-the night off work (and I hate to miss work at this job, truly, so my saying this is a testament to how sick I am)
-lots of sleep next to my Murphy
Depending on whether I get in with the doctor this morning, I might be able to acquire all or at least most of these things in one trip out into the world and a couple phone calls.
