Diseased (update)

I thought I was sick last week. I was. And I thought I was getting better. By last Saturday my voice was starting to get back to normal, the sore throat was easing up, and my blocked nose felt like it was clearing.

Oh, no it wasn’t. It was just revving up for a massive sinus and ear infection. On Sunday and Monday I was double-dosing Lemsip and Sudafed, but that wasn’t cutting through either the congestion or the pain. (Note to self: pseudoephedrine makes me nauseous. Avoid in future.) I saw my doctor on Wednesday and got tooled up with some antibiotics, which finally seem to be doing the trick. It’s only today that I’ve been able to get through the day using just paracetamol, instead of topping up with ibuprofen.

And I can finally smell again.
