Plague

I had every intention of catching up on my friends feed, but you guys all have wobbly words. It's okay. I have wobbly words too. I have a bad cold, and am at work, doped up on a lot of different kinds of cold medicines. So everything is all wobbly. And I'm here all day, and don't have a ride home (I will have to take the bus). And it's gonna be a long long day, because it's only 10am and I'm not done until 3.

Yesterday was the worst. I couldn't even get out of bed, except to go to the bathroom to hack up a lung. Or both lungs. I couldn't do anything to release me from my 100% mucus level, especially in my nose. All my usual avenues of relief failed me. They just stopped working at all. The second I got down to 90% snot, I started coughing, and it went right back up to 100%. What's worse is my back, right where my lungs are located, hurts so fucking bad from all the coughing. I don't wanna cough anymore. I don't wanna!

Saturday was nice, if not still snotty. Brian (Patient Zero) came over and we spent all day on the couch together napping, watching movies, and drinking teapot after teapot after teapot. I don't think my toilet has seen that much pee all year, hahaha! We took care of each other, though. Made each other laugh, exchanged cold medicines, etc. Brian poured cough syrup down my throat, but he missed and it got all over my boobs. So gross and sticky. But really funny. I thought I was really getting better, but alas, yesterday, as stated, was so bad that I couldn't get out of bed.

But I'm at work today. High on cold medicine. Remember when you could get high on cold medicine? Like, just one? Now you have to take an amalgam of different shit, which I have - Mucinex, cough syrup, nasal spray, advil cold & sinus... who remembers what else. Plus I'm tired as fuck. Was up every hour coughing up a lung.

Gonna die.

Am I dying?

It got to the point where they finally made me go home. Too bad they couldn't just call me to tell me to stay home though - I got stuck at the nearby cafe until I could get a ride.
I'm feeling better now, though :)
