I did take a full round of Amoxicillin for a flu-induced sinus infection with the hopes that it would also treat the cough. At that point there was no indication of bronchitis or walking pneumonia (both of which have been my chronic pattern, but usually in early winter). I am, however, calling the doctor to get listened to again tomorrow, because jeebus on a stick with butter, if I’m...

I keep hearing that this flu that came through NEO in February and March was the nasty one with the lingering cough, and I can attest to the truth of that. It’s about three(? or maybe it’s 2? let’s do the time warp agaaaaaain) weeks later and I’m still coughing constantly unless I’m holding a cough drop in my mouth. Consequently, my mouth is full of tiny cuts and my...

You know your little girl is feeling much better

Remember how I said I was feeling much better yesterday, and so I didn’t see the doctor for myself when we took Lila? Yeah, fever’s back, head is all jammed up, throat is sore, tummy is all horked up, and my entire body feels like it was used as a dance floor last night. There is a river of funk flowing through me.
Glutton for punishment
Why, after suffering through five days of flu would I begin watching Survivors on Netflix? Yeeesh.
With the fever chills and everything hurts so much just put me out of my misery can I have some morphine please?
Thera-Flu tastes like artificially sweetened ass.
looks like we brought it back from our trip to the Art Institute in Pittsburgh. The admissions director we had a conference call scheduled with tonight to go over everything had to cancel because she’s got the high fever, body aches, hideous cough. So relieved I don’t have to sit upright and talk about financial aid for an hour tonight, which begs the question why the hell didn’t...
Now I have it.
My chest burns, and the coughing feels like it’s ripping flesh from bone. I’ve been awake all night, but intermittently dozing off into crazy dreams for a few minutes, then looking at the clock again. Lila asked to climb in with us at 5:00, which turned the bedroom into a furnace with two feverish bodies lighting it up. Ugh. Make it stop.

Spring sick, here we go
When I picked Lila up at her friend’s after work yesterday, she was on the couch under a blanket with a fever. It’s now up to 103 and she’s losing her voice, so we’re staying home today. Fortunately, I brought some work home with me last night, so I can at least put a few hours in on a project I haven’t had time to touch while in the office, and have been too fried to...
I was going to participate
and I tried “fuck yeah english muffin pizza” because that’s the lame ass excuse of a dish I’m calling dinner tonight, and yeah, there was a picture. Boring. and then I tried “fuck yeah root canal” and I didn’t post that hot mess. FUCK YEAH YOU’RE WELCOME
No idea how to write this cover letter. It’s for a part-time seasonal job in my community that I’ve been doing for two years as a volunteer to cover for the person currently in the position when they go on vacation. The hiring committee consists of that person and two others I know well. They’re posting the position because it’s the way things need to be done in a 501c3,...
