|this is how we roll when I am home sick for a week!|
Wednesday morning, I wake up with another headache and ear ache. Voice is a little better but not much. I struggle whether I should go in or not. I really need to be at work but I also need to rest my voice so I can talk. I call in again and decide I'm going to the doctor today. So, I make an appointment and at 11:30 I'm face to face with the absolute BEST doctor in the world! He's seriously amazing and so, so sweet. I love that I can also pretty much self diagnose myself. I think over the last few years I've only been wrong once on my self diagnosis. He says I have the crap going around and I tell him I think it's an ear infection and a sinus infection (at that point he only knew I didn't have a voice so that is why he wasn't aware of the ear and sinus stuff). Checked my ear, yep... middle ear infection. Checked all my sinus stuff (that so grosses me out) and yep, sinuses. Apparently, taking allergy medication is good but it also dries everything up. So when you have sinus issues like I do now (again... what the blessed hell!?), drying everything up is not very good. So next year, I need to take allergy medication and Mucinex! So I leave with an antibiotic prescription, a note excusing me from work for the entire week, and instructions for 'No Talking!".

Hopefully tomorrow or at least by Friday, my voice will be back and going to the grocery store won't seem so exhausting!
