So, here it is Monday. My eyes are crusted, both my ears are blocked, my nose is totally stuffed up and blocked, but dripping -- yeah, so it is red and chapped where I have used puffs, and keenex, napkins, and toilet paper in my quest to keep my stuff to myself. My throat is clogged, I can't breathe, Coughing is painful, sneezing is painful and explosive, parents of small children see me and turn their children away shoving clorox whipes over their noses and mouthes. Even at Jesus' birthday party, not one person said they were happy to see me there.
In short, I decided I had better keep the doctor's appointment today.
I went and sat in the waiting room for an hour. It was a petri dish. A Germ Fest. They tell you if you have a cough to get a mask, but no one does. I don't. A mask in my current state would kill me, and, when they went to drag my dead body away, my nose would have run out in that mask -- just not happening. Spending an hour in a doctor's office trying not to touch anything and only breathing enough to sustain life, raises the blood pressure, and anxiety and all of that.
The final verdict is a sinus infection. She gave me two different types of nose sprays -- one because my nose is so clogged that the other stuff wouldn't be able to touch it; and antibiotics for the infection. And took some blood, which is the real reason I went.
I told her I only go to see her when I am miserable.
I am glad for the scripts though. I hope I can be clean by Sunday, so I can bake cookies with my sister. She has a really cool modern kitchen, with an island, and counters, and two ovens.
