That's the constant sound I heard along with the pounding in my head. It doesn't stop.
I've been getting sicker and sicker as the days have gone on. I finally made it to the doctor today. I probably should have gone in sooner, but I had to wait for pay day to have the $20 for the copay. I could tell by the way the doctor was visibly taken aback when he looked into my throat that he thought I should have come in sooner, too.
The verdict? Nothing really out of the ordinary, at least not for me. A major case of sinusitis, a bit of bronchitis (made worse by my asthma), double otitis media, and some nasty pharyngitis to round it all out. If you're not up on your medical jargon, that means that my sinuses, lung, ears, and throat are all infected. That's basically my entire respiratory system. Fun times!
Now, I'm going to go beg Sarah to stop banging out "Axel F" on the piano so I can lay down and wait for the headache drugs to kick in.
