I had to ask the doctor to examine my throat and ears (forgot to ask him to check my nose). Maybe I'm fussy but it seems like that would have been standard protocol considering the symptoms I presented.
I left with two prescriptions and after picking up supplies at the drug store I've been confined to my bedroom. I slept most of the day today, taking an unpaid day off work. I did get some hexies made this afternoon so at least I've been a little productive. Not sure if I'm going to work or not tomorrow -- depends on how much sleep I get tonight and how much better I feel. I've got to get rid of this horrible cough - my chest and throat hurt so much!
