Making Progress

Well, my disease, not me.

I'm not that sick... but what I've got, I've got GOOD.

I have a sore throat, but my throat is not sore.

It's all the glands under my jaw, from ear to ear. Swallowing? Excruciating.

They, (my screaming, swollen glands) woke me up after a couple hours last night, and kept me up for 2 and a half more hours. Until the 2 extra strength Tylenol + 1 regular strength Ibuprofen kicked in. After the 3 cups of weak tea with lemon and honey. Halfway through the 2 am showing of Ghostbusters.

I wasn't feeling them so much this afternoon, but they're making themselves known in a big way again tonight, and I've gotta say I'm getting a little scared.

By now I'm feeling pretty tired, but the drugs haven't started giving any pain relief yet and, in fact one ear is beginning to throb and ache in increasing measure.

I don't want to be up all night again!!!!

The cough is getting nice and settled in my chest, and my sinuses are starting to rise (and flow) to the occasion. This, on top of the incredible pain of the throat glands.


More drugs, I think.

And maybe no Dentist tomorrow morning...
