What have I been up to since my last post? About 101.8.
I've been sick for a few weeks now. Not strep, flu, bronchitis, pneumonia or anything else anyone can specify. I've taken two trips to Patient First, where I've had cultures taken from my throat, nostrils, blood, and urine and I've been poked at, peered at, x-rayed, and subject to whatever else they can do. "Wait it out" is all they can say. I've blown my nose so much the skin on my nose and upper lip is stiff and brittle and so raw that anything I put on there stings terribly. I'm feeling a little better today. I'm not sure if that's saying much, but I hope it's a start.
Work has been crazy. I can't decide if I can't keep up because it's so much or because I don't have the energy to keep up lately. I want to hit the "reset" button that makes my house clean and my grocery shopping done and my work caught up so I can move forward with a simple, organized life. I haven't found that button yet, though. It's probably under a pile of laundry. Or one of my cats.
