Ah Springtime. When the trees ejaculate into the air and set my allergies off. Despite my daily Zyrtec, I’ve been in agony since last Wednesday.
Woke up at 5 a.m.–as if that isn’t ungodly enough–because the pain in my head yanked me out of sleep. I lay in bed feeling like my brain was exploding. Then the nausea came and I stumbled to the bathroom to vomit.
But I didn’t. Instead crazy chills and marrow-infused-coldness took hold. And I’d swear someone was stabbing me in the head. Over and over again. For hours.
Somehow, I got back into bed. The pain refused to abate. Fever came on.
And I knew not to cry. That only makes it worse. So I laid there. Until sleep finally found me.
And I slept all day. No eating. No drinking. No moving.
Then came the dizziness. The feeling that I wasn’t quite here. That none of this was really real.
I went to see the doctor and found out I had a sinus infection. And I was severely dehydrated. So I’ve been chugging Gatorade for days.
Despite antibiotics, the pounding and the pressure in my head continues.
It’s absolutely miserable.
And my eyes ache. Sitting here to type, I feel like I’ve been reading for 12 hours straight. And I haven’t.
I’m going to netipot and then back to bed.
Hope Spring is kinder to you.
