This has not been a great week. I had strep throat. I started feeling ill last week Friday night and so I decided to be responsible and stay home last Saturday instead of going to an anime day that I had been looking forward to for ages (I have been trying to get to these events for over a 18 months…one day I will get there and there will be much celebration).
The thing about me being sick is it scares me more than it used to. My brush with an auto-immune disease has made me much more wary about things, especially when I can’t shake things. Thankfully, I have a brilliant GP who is also very good about referring on to a specialist when she does not know what is wrong. Since these ear and throat infections have become peskily common and she has not detected an underlying cause it is off to the ENT tomorrow.
I am optimistic that the cause will be uncovered, because it is very frustrating for a throat infection to have a disproportionate impact on my life. I mean the odd TV series binge is fun, but it gets frustrating after a while to be following the doctor’s advice to rest and be lying in bed watching NCIS on Netflix instead of tackling big projects. Of course, the other thing that my brush with Hashimoto’s taught me was to listen to the doctor about taking it easy and so while I know this is the smart thing to do…it still is frustrating.
I think that this is a Forest Gump type ending: That’s all I have to say about that. (For now at any rate)
Love and hanging in here,
