Still sick. The Tylenol seemed to help a little bit while I was at work, but I'm still more or less an extra body. Other than that, I'm fairly useless. Walking or talking in excess causes my cough to worsen. It was easier to be sick when I was still on swing shift. Then I could hide out in the office the whole time. With the boss there during the day, I always feel awkward when I spend more time in the office.

In a couple hours I will be taking some Tylenol PM so hopefully that'll help me sleep better than the crap I took yesterday. I found the receipt so that stuff will be returned tomorrow.

Work was uneventful except that we had two new people; two floats to be exact. They are on call and work whatever and whenever they're told to. One of them had already been sort of trained; the other was being trained. This is going to be an interesting few weeks.

My nose is raw from blowing it so much. I've pretty much spent all the rest of my money on cold medication so I don't have anything left to help with the chapped skin. I guess I know what I'll be buying come next payday.

Anywho, I think I'll continue watching a few more shows on Hulu before I call it a night.

Until tomorrow. . .

Satisfaction guaranteed

I think I will get my $5 back tomorrow and buy a name brand medication. Usually the generic cold meds do about the same as the name brand, but the Safeway brand of Nyquil made me feel worse. I'll take it to customer service tomorrow and see what I can do. I will be getting Tylenol Severe Cold either way; I just would prefer to get my money back on the shit that didn't work.

So that pretty much sums up how I'm feeling right now. I may also have to dip in to my savings and get some soup and crackers and orange juice or something of the like to maybe aid in getting better.

I hate being sick. I especially hate it when I can't afford to call off from work and the meds I get to try to help make me feel even shittier.

My right nasal passage still hates me. It has remained stuffed probably 95% of the time I've been ill. I seriously want to cut it off.

As I continue hacking up a lung, I will entertain myself with nonsensical YouTube videos. There's some shows in my Hulu queue, but I don't want to have to pause every time I go in to a coughing fit so as not to miss anything. I'll wait until I'm no longer sick to watch something less nonsensical.

Until tomorrow. . . *cough* *sniffle* Ugh.

Full blown

What's the fastest way to get your coworkers to clean? Tell them you're sick. That's also the best way to get them to leave you alone.

I didn't sleep much last night. I woke up a bunch of times not being able to breathe through my nose. The last time I woke up, around 3, I was unable to fall back asleep. I also got sick around 4. I have no idea why my stomach was upset, but I got sick again about an hour in to my shift. I don't feel quite as shitty as I did first thing this morning, but I am definitely sick.

I will be buying Nyquil for sure tomorrow. Work was busy today and the distractions made me forget to stop at the store on my way home. After work was done my only focus was to get home and into something more comfortable than my uniform.

Unless something terribly exciting happens, the next few posts will probably just be me bitching about being sick, so here's your heads up.

Until tomorrow. . .

To be or not to be... contagious?
Saturday. 3.23.13 8:01 pm
I can't tell if what I have is a head cold or some newly acquired allergy. I guess I wait to see how long I suffer. A cold will go away. Allergies, not so much. Let the waiting games begin.

This congestion also seems to have affected my typing ability as I have been hitting the backspace button more often than normal. Wonderful.

It'll be nice when my right nasal passage decides to take down it's barricade so that I'm able to breathe through it again. I've been sneezing all day and my eyes' tear ducts are on high alert so they tear up every time I sneeze or almost sneeze. It's most annoying when I'm driving.

On top of this, I started my period a day late so I've got those fun time symptoms going on as well. My body has formed a rebellion against me. I believe this would be the appropriate place to use the acronym FML ... although, I suppose it could be much worse.

Ugh. Until tomorrow. . .

Not again
Friday. 3.22.13 8:51 pm
I feel that way you feel when you have a cold coming on. Time to up my Vitamin C intake again.

This morning I woke up to snow. . . three days in to Spring. Apparently Mother Nature didn't get the memo that Spring started on Wednesday. It didn't last very long, nor did it stick, but it was still funny. My friend up north got about 4" of snow. It would have been funny if that had happened here in the city.

I got some errands run and now I have to start getting ready for bed. I know why I picked up the shift tomorrow, but I still wish I had the day off. Oh well. I have to do laundry tomorrow after work, but other than that, I have no plans so I might nap.

I hope this feeling that I have turns out to be nothing. I don't really want to be sick. Especially if I'm planning on working extra hours starting the end of next week. Guess we'll see what happens.

Until tomorrow. . .

Damn technology

This morning started out weird. I woke up with my alarm, but I was very confused as to why it was going off. I could have sworn it was my day off and I had no idea why my alarm was going off, but then I realized it was Thursday, hit the snooze and dozed for another 15 minutes. Gotta love when mornings start out that way.

So I've been having issues with my WiFi working over the last couple days and in my attempt at trying to fix it, I appear to have made it worse. I hit the reset button on my router and now it won't register on my computer. If I plug it in directly, then it registers, but nothing as soon as I unplug it. I asked Jacob if he could come over tomorrow to fix it, but he's sleeping so I probably won't find out till tomorrow.

Until then, I'm directly connected to the wall. At least I know the internet won't give me issues while it's directly connected. The only problem is that, until it's fixed, I won't be able to use WiFi on my phone. Oh well. I have enough data left over for this month. I don't think leaving the network on for a day will make too much of a difference.

The only thing of interest that happened at work today was a leak coming from the OR. It was coming out of the tile and dripping on to the ambulance driveway. The engineer was told it was from a procedure they were doing and it consisted of blood mixed with urine. So basically a bio-hazard. Guess who had to stand outside and guard the area for half an hour until it could be cleaned up? Yeah, moi. It looked like Fruit Punch or something of the same hue, but it was still gross.

Uhm, yeah, I think that's it for today. I get to sleep in tomorrow. Yay! It's the only day I'll be able to until next Friday. Meh. Oh well. At least I know that my next paycheck won't be short a day.

Until tomorrow folks. . .
