the story of an invisible girl
I had a good time at confusion last week, but managed to bring home some kind of ick that made its appearance Monday. It started out as a sore throat and cold, but then on Friday stabbing ear pain added itself to the mix. Whee!

Since I happened to have an unused and unexpired bottle of antibiotics in the closet, M and I decided to self-diagnose the ick as antibiotics worthy without a doctors visit. (The back story: I had a possible infection right before a vacation on May, so I got a script just in case. Didn't end up needing it then, yay.)

Anyway despite attacking this thing with a variety of treatments, I'm still under the weather. Getting better, but slowly! I'm taking today as a recovery day, and have spent much of it thus far nested on the couch. My Kitty Robin is delighted with the situation, and has spent much of the time cuddled up with me. At one point, when M had kindly brought me a mug of tea, he looked at us and laughed. "You've got a cat, a blanket, a Teddy bear, pillows, a book, and a cup of tea. "

I smiled at him. "You can't get much more nest-y than this, can you? If this doesn't cure me, nothing will. "

This better do the trick, because tomorrow it's back to reality. Hopefully by then the worst will be a thing of the past!

This must be a specific virus because those exact symptoms traveled around my workplace. My boss had it the worst with me running a close second and I am still getting over it. The truly rotten feeling lasted almost 3 weeks and this is now my fourth weekend with it down to just sinus congestion. Made for a really rotten January!

I hope you are feeling better by tomorrow my friend. There has been a bug going around here too.

Oh, so THAT'S what it is?
Random stabby ear pain - check.
Feeling very tired and a bit achey - check.
Assuming it's just because I'm getting older and very busy as usual - check.
Now feeling entitled to go down a gear or two and rest up - check!

I hope you'll be completely recovered very quickly, hon.

Random stabby ear pain can often indicate a blocked Eustachian tube, and not necessarily an infection. I get them quite frequently when I have colds. Nasal decongestants like Afrin do a good job to relieve the pain, although you can only take them for 3 days in a row.

Feel better soon! I thought I was getting con crud, but took a lot of Vitamin C and Zicam early in the week, and seem to have dodged it!
