To Sleep, Perchance To Dream

Friday, February 20th, 2015

I have so many things I should do, but my head is also full of all sorts of troublesome things that are distracting me from my work.

And on top of that, I’m tired. With a capital T.

To me, all of this works in combination to send me the message that I should just go to bed. So that is where I am going.

Tomorrow can be brighter, right?

Germs Part Deux

Thursday, February 19th, 2015

So just like that proverbial cat, the germs came back. Seeing as how I’ve suffered off and on for almost four weeks now, I finally went to see my family doctor, who took one look at me and said, “Uh, yeah. Antibiotics for you.”

Now we wait for the germ-killing action to kick in and take this pain away. Whee.

I’m certain that is playing a fair role in the fact that I am weepy and feeling down today. Of course, there are other factors, too. There are always other factors, it seems. Sometimes life sucks and it’s even worse when you realize there’s not a single thing you can do about it.

I was hoping ‘15 would be better than ‘14, but so far the evidence is pointing in the opposite direction. Fucking universe.

Sinusitis

Sunday, February 1st, 2015

Yeah. That’s the word of the day, folks.

Those germs I was talking about earlier? They got me good. The doctor informed me that my version of sinusitis happens to be viral. So this means no antibiotics (because they wouldn’t work anyway, duh) and instead, anti-inflammatories, pain relievers and steroid nasal sprays. Whee.

And the best part? “If you still have symptoms after four weeks, come back and see us.”

FOUR WEEKS?!?

Christ on a cracker.

So keep your fingers crossed for me that this crud does, indeed, remain just an easily-defeated virus. The alternative is just too nasty to think about.

On a related note, the smart ones among you will have realized by now that *this* might just be the reason why there haven’t been any new posts for a few days.

Gold star for you.

If, as I said, all goes well, I’ll be back to the RBC tomorrow and attempting to crank out something new in terms of creative stuff. Stay tuned!
