I have now had this extremely phlegm-y head cold on and off for an entire month now.

Sometimes I'm congested, sometimes I'm not.  Sometimes I sound like a broken accordion, sometimes I sound fine.  Sometimes my throat hurts and my glands are the size of golf balls, sometimes it doesn't and they're not.

Sometimes I feel like ass and look fine, and sometimes I feel fine and sound like ass.


No infection, just angry, angry sinuses.  I can't believe that I have to fucking SHOW ID to buy Sudafed, the real kind, not the new PE fake shit they're selling on the shelves.  I've been mainlining that and Mucinex so that I can continue to function.  It's just gross and I'm tired of leaving a trail of gross tissues wherever I go. 

I've taken a couple days off of work here and there to just collapse, it's a wonder I'm still employed.

I would like an immune system now plz.

I have a head cold, thanks to [ profile] lord_pendulous.

He also informed me that I am hovering in the nebulous age range between "Kitten" and "Cougar".

All this *after* I took time out of my exam-taking on Saturday and brought Harry Potter AND McDonalds to his sick butt.  I mean, literally.  He was on the couch and I handed the book and the food to him.  It was like the ultimate delivery service.

Even at 5 o'clock at night, people at Barnes & Noble were still all OMG HARRY POTTER SQUEEEEE!!!!!

Having never actually read a Harry Potter book, I couldn't really get behind them, but I smiled and nodded as everyone chatted at me about characters who are wholly unfamiliar to me.

We should have spent Saturday at [ profile] synnoveaevael's birthday party, but he was diseased and I was in the middle of a four day, 25 page open book final for my business course, so we stayed home like the losers we are.

My final has been completed, he feels much better, and I'm sniffling all over the place.

That sound about right.  :->

The magical mystery bruise continues to get grosser as the days pass.

mysterious bruise

No idea when or how I did it.  How can I injure myself without even knowing about it?

I just took a couple of Excedrin Migraine for the agonizing headache I developed WHILE I WAS SLEEPING.

Then, for some reason, I read the bottle.

"Do not take more than 2 tablets in 24 hours"


Oh, Excedrin.  You so funny.

Chronic illness sucks.

Lately, chronic illness sucks even more, because I have another one.

The many medical professionals in my life are not certain what, precisely, it is, which seems to be the story of my life.

Current thinking pegs it as post viral fatigue syndrome, possibly fibromyalgia.

I'm even more exhausted than usual, I'm in pain, and my thinking is fuzzy.  :-(  I could deal with all of it, except the fuzzy brain.  I need my brain, it's about the only thing I have left that actually works.

After a few weeks of working part time, I gave in and went out on temporary disability.   Working even a couple of hours a day is tiring.

Hell, washing my hair is tiring.

I've noticed that a higher than average percentage of my flist (and by extension, the interweb as a whole) suffers from at least one chronic disease.

One of my doctors and I have been discussing this phenomenon, and so I would like to pick your brains. Also, if you are so inclined, please feel free to pimp to people who might be interested.

This is an informal survey, just for my own information. IP logging is off, and anon comments are on, if that makes you feel more comfortable. Please note that in my examples, I just chose the disorders that I personally suffer from or that I could think of off the top of my head. If you would like, you can enter in your particular diagnosis. If I missed something embarrassingly obvious, just add it in the 'Other' category. (And WOW did I spell emphysema wrong! ::wince::)

Any of you who have known me a while know that I am possibly the least athletic woman on earth.

No, really. No athleticism whatsoever.

So how is it that I managed to damage my rotator cuff?

Now I get to play in the wonderful world of cortisone injections (IN MY SHOULDER, HOLY FUCKING SHIT) and physical therapy, and if that doesn't work, surgery!
