Still Sick and Feeling Wiped Out

Today’s not been great in terms of my health. I’m on day six of being sick and today I have just felt completely wiped out. My sore throat from last week has now evolved into a chesty cough with a lot of sinus pain. I figure there’s not much point in going to the doctor unless I want to be told to “drink plenty of fluids, get plenty of rest, and come back if it doesn’t go away in a week.”

I think this is the longest I’ve been sick this whole year. The last time I spent more than a couple of days with a cold was probably in the spring, so in some respects I feel lucky. Obviously this sucks and I don’t want to be sick anymore but I’m kind of like “whelp! What can ya do!” So I’m just doing what I can to take it easy — eating soup, drinking fluids, taking medicine when I feel it’s appropriate.

I did manage to get a little bit of writing done today so that’s positive. It was difficult to stay focused because all I kept thinking about was how much my back hurt and how painful my sinuses felt but luckily I found my stride and was able to get in 3,005 words.

Anyway, I’m going to wrap this up here. Let’s hope I get better soon. See you tomorrow.
