Well, I went to the campus clinic this morning. When I woke up, my whole right side was just throbbing, my eye was even more swollen and the ear, as it has been for several weeks, felt wonky.
Turns out, I have a raging ear infection…it’s like I’m a child again! I never hear of adults getting ear infections. Also I’ve got some funky sinus. My blood pressure was wonky, the bottom number was high but the top number was good. I have no idea what any of that means. Will google.
The doc gave me some steroid nose spray to use daily, in addition to the netti pot/saline rinse as well as some honkin antibiotics that MUST BE TAKEN WITH FOOD. I don’t know how many people have told me that. So. Hopefully this will go away in a few days.
Explains why I just haven’t felt good in awhile.
Balancing out my childlike ear quandry came the use of my very grown up health insurance and perscription benefits.
That’s a great balance.
What a relief.
I’ve filled my scrips, home now to read and my goal is to perhaps finish a paper.
They’re all coming due and Im just a titch panicky. It will help, the feeling better.
