Okay. Time to confess...
You are all dealing with one sick Nerd. The creeping greeb that has stalked both the Prime Geek and myself since a few weeks before Christmas just isn't listening to any of the dozens of eviction notices I have sent... and frankly, I think its planning on making me ill a family business.
Antibiotics, teas that taste of horse piss, and baths where the vapor goes oddly green have all been tried. I've attempted sleeping it off, working it out, sweating it clear, and even one weekend of insanity where I left the state in a blizzard and just tried to frankly ignore the whole dratted thing and hope it would give up in a huff. (Bad call on that one. Germs don't like to be ignored, it makes them fractious.) I've meditated, counted my breathes, and watched enough daytime television to truly FEAR anyone who lives in California. At this point I'm having fever dreams of being married to the Prime Geek's evil twin.
I've lost my voice, dropped a few pounds (so hey, it ain't ALL bad), and generally staggered around in a haze scaring my cats as I look like the wrath of not one... but SEVERAL pissed off deities. Diets of frozen juice pops, lemon-lime soda, and soup that is definitely not up to my mother's caliber have been the order of the month. I would kill for the ability to chew, swallow and most importantly keep DOWN a steak cooked just off rare... but instead I am stuck with mush.
I figure I have maybe 2-3 days before I find myself hogtied and tossed into the back of the Jeep while the Prime Geek (who shouldn't be so hasty.... his own hacking has achieved epic levels this month) trundles my nerdly tuckus to the doctors.
I HATE going to the doctor. I really really REALLY hate going to the doctor. Evil overlords with their horrid paper gowns, propensity for jabbing innocent people with needles, and slavish devotion to tossing you onto the scales even if all you are there for is a stupid ear ache! (Seriously. If I have ever had an ear infection that was detectable by a large scale... I probably have issues far more serious then a simple infection.)
Any suggestions? I'm a desperate nerd here. Not only am I just wanting to get better, there is an actual deadline looming over my nerdy head.
Sunday is the Prime Geek and I's first anniversary. If I haven't mentioned it yet, our wedding - while lovely.... was not spent the way we might have wanted. I had walking pneumonia and strep throat - which means antibiotics.... which make birth controls worthless... I'm allergic to latex... do I really need to draw a picture here folks? I would really like to spend my first anniversary curled around my honey NOT a toilet.
Frankly, folks, there's a hot tub weekend at a hotel on the line here.
