Last week Cody got sick. I figured I would get it too but a few days ago I thought I was in the clear. Then, while drinking a glass of water I went from fine to horrid sore throat in two swallows.
Why do you feel the need to swallow every 10 seconds with a sore throat? It's so cruel. By morning my tonsils were swollen and there was an ache all through my sinuses and down my jaw line. Unfortunately for me I've used all my sick days at work with migraines and a bad spout of depression. It was actually better I went to work though, that was the day the managers finally interviewed me for a promotion from regular sales associate to supervisor. To bad I could hardly talk to answer the questions
. I wound up having to leave early and went straight to bed. Since Cody is still getting over his cold I moved out to the couch as he was snoring like a gutted bear. The best part of that is Discord snuggled under the covers with me! Who doesn't love a fuzzy butt-warmer at night?
Yesterday was much better. I got through work fine and could tell I was just one good nights sleep away from being back to normal. I went to bed at 10pm but despite being both physically and mentally exhausted I couldn't break that barrier into unconsciousness. I saw every hour tick by. My nose was completely blocked up so I had to breath out my mouth, drying out my throat and making the pain worse. I stupidly waited till 5am to take a Unisom. Now I'm battling that next-day brain fog on top of only getting 3hrs of sleep. :bleh;
On the plus side we should finally be getting Cody's check today. It's 21 days late on account of his employer copying the address wrong and sending it to some fucker who managed to cash it. It better be in that mailbox when I check it. Rent's due in 4 days and we couldn't even cover half of it right now.
