I hate calling in to work sick.
This morning I woke up at around 2:30, with a sore throat so bad I was unable to swallow. Great. I definitely don’t have time for this right now. But – I made some beef broth (at 3 in he morning, I’m sure my cat and dog were completely confused), and the warmth and salty-ness soothed it enough for me to go back to sleep.
But when I woke up at 7 – it was back, and this time I had a fever. So I decided for the sake of my co-workers health I would stay home from work. Even though I had a good reason, staying home from work always makes me feel like I’ve done something wrong.
Well, after a visit to the doctor the diagnosis was clear – I have an ear infection, that is beginning to move into my throat. A part of me wonders if this has anything to do with with the fluctuation in my medications. It’s probably nothing but coincidence but you have to admit it’s odd timing.
