The Thursday during our vacation I caught a cold. When we returned home, I went to the doctor on that next Monday. At that time, I was told to take Robitussin DM for my cough.
I worked the week through, feeling like crap, and sounding even worse. My throat was killing me and lozenges weren’t helping. So I went back to the doctor Friday night. I had no voice at that point.
They took a culture and determined that I had strep throat. Fun. I was even told by the nurse that I was, and I quote: “The only patient today that actually deserved to be here”. Lucky me! I guess the urgent care gets a lot of paranoids and hypochondriacs, or just people with the sniffles and minor cuts that could be taken care of at home.
So now I am on antibiotics, Robitussin (still for the cold I ALSO have), Claritin, and Sudafed during the day with Benadryl at night. I have NEVER taken so much medication in my life. I am feeling much better now, but will be taking tomorrow off work just to make sure I can recuperate fully.
So no well wishes needed, I just wanted to explain the lack of posts after the vacation wrap up. I should be back to 100% by Tuesday.
On a slightly better topic:
It looks like I will indeed be developing a website for my Tattoo artist. This is cool on two counts. One, I get to further hone and develop my web skills, and two bartering for time means MORE INK MORE QUICKLY!
You can all rest assured once I have a site done and ready to go that I will be pimping it HARD on LiveJournal, Myspace, Friendster, and anywhere else I can find to tell people about her, cause quite simply, she rocks and needs lots of customers to keep her in business!
