Well, it turns out that I've developed acute Laryngitis and a friendly helping of Strep Throat. I can't taste or smell anything. My eyes are watering constantly and I've been blowing my nose more than I ever have in my life. It hurts to swallow liquids. I'm cold all the time, even if I have multiple layers of clothing on and a few blankets piled on top of me.

I got antibiotics on Monday. I thought I'd feel a little better by now but I feel about the same, if not a little worse. At this point I'm ready to tell the doctors to chop the damn things (tonsils) out and be done with it all. I don't have to work for the rest of the week, but I have to go in even if I'm not feeling better next week. I wish the places I worked would have a little sympathy. I realize that I can't take time off all the time, but I'm sick. I'm not fooling around. Couldn't they please just relax, wish me well, and tell me to call when I'm up and running again?

Dreaming. Too much dreaming.

I may go soak in the bathtub for a while. Being sick sucks. I rarely get sick,  but when I do it hits me like a ton of bricks.
