Sick, Sick, Sick

Disclaimer:  Please read at your own risk; it's pretty graphic. 

Saturday morning I woke up not feeling so great.  Kind of bummed around the house, didn't do much or get much accomplished.  I had a horrible, horrible cough and ended up going to the doctor on Tuesday.  Got a cortisone shot in my butt and a prescription for some cough medicine w/ codeine.  I have a very high tolerance for pain meds and instead of helping me sleep, the codeine made me positively wired.  I mean, legit wide awake until 4:45 AM.  NyQuil has the same effect on me.  I might as well have drank a couple of Red Bulls.  Cosmo had an early morning flight so his alarm went off at 5 AM.  So, basically, I was operating on 15 minutes of sleep all day Wednesday. 

Late Wednesday night I started to get some really disgusting goo in my eyes.  Thursday morning I could barely open my eyes.  They were almost swollen shut and filled with crusty, dried goo.  I was still feeling very, very puny and went back to the doctor to find out that I now have walking pneumonia and am also the proud owner of conjunctivitis in both eyes.  Yay.  Go me.  I am positively exhausted and can barely move from the couch to my bed.  I am totally drained and have never felt this bad in my life.  I think I've just been running on empty the last couple of weeks and it finally caught up with me.
