Sick Day

I have officially been sick for nine (9!!) days. It all began with a sore throat which I thought was just the common cold. This turned into puking, indigestion, the chills, and all of those physical, nasty symptoms one does not want. Just when the it seemed like the ailment was gone from my body, POOF my ears began to pop and ring! My hearing was affected, greatly diminished and as though I was under water. It felt like being perpetually stuck in the landing phase of the airplane ear pressure exercise, in the painful seconds before it pops.  Three doctors later, it seems as thought I have THREE (3!!) separate infections.

A bilateral middle ear infection (both ears), a sinus infection and possibly conjunctivitis. Three infections, in my face, simultaneously. With such an array of suffering, I felt like the bacteria deserved a post of its own…

The Walkup Has a Sick Day

Get Well Soon!
