Sidelined

I’ve been suffering from some sort of head/nose/sinus related malady that has kept me from the computer nearly all week. My doctor suggested it was a virus, not just the worlds worst sinus infection, and yesterday when I made Janie come home early from work because I was sure I might need to go to the hospital, I started to think he might be right. I hesitate to say that I’m better because I only just woke up and, though I am feeling better, I was also feeling better when I woke up yesterday, too and it didn’t take long before I had my head buried in the toilet, throwing up because the pain in my head was so bad. So, I’m going to rest today and hopefully will be back to posting next week.

I’m off to sit on the couch and watch Xena: Warrior Princess with my wife.

    Ugh, I am so feeling your pain right now. I’ve been dealing with what sounds like the same thing for the last two weeks now. At first I thought it was two separate issues (annoying summer sinus/ear infection + whatever bug my honey brought home from work Monday night), but maybe it is just one nasty virus. All I know is I feel like I need to sleep for about a month, but laying down makes the pain/pressure in my head even worse.

    I hope sitting on the couch watching Xena with Janie does the trick and you’re feeling all better soon, because being sick in the summer sure bites!

    You’re right, it sure does suck. I hope you get to feeling better, too.

    Damn, that sounds nasty. Sorry to hear about that. Hope you’ll be feeling better soon, and yes, I have found that watching television is an excellent idea when feeling physically fubar’d. Ideally, it at least takes your mind off your symptoms.

    Ideally.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    Eewwww. That’s the oddest virus ever. If you’re still throwing up, I’d definitely get medical help
