In my attempt to "grin and bear it" this week, I've come up with all the illnesses I was developing (tongue-in-cheek of course). Working in a medical office, they got the joke...so this past week I've had Rheumatic fever (achy knees), Bubonic plague, and MRSA (due to a nice little pimple in my nose - ewwww! I know!!) Do you know how much it sucks to have a cold and a pimple in your nose?! - blowing your nose hurts like a bitch. I'm sorry for the imagery I'm causing at this point. So, having a history of performing "bathroom surgery" on myself, I decided to take care of the pimple (really to get some relief while blowing my nose). To be honest, I messed with it more than once. Here's the result:
CELLULITIS!! I have an actual diagnosis now!! Am I my worst enemy or what?! So I am on a 10 day course of Keflex for my poor aching, painful nose. I'm thinking I got what I deserved whining all week and trying to get rid of my MRSA, bubonic plague and rheumatoid fever myself ;)
Post Script: I pride myself in looking at all my favorite blogs on a daily basis and being able to be very up-to-date. I've failed this task miserably this week and I'm feeling so guilty. My saving grace will be that not everyone posts on the weekend so I'll be able to catch up...so if you notice that I'm constantly stalking your blogs and haven't been this week it's not because I've lost interest it's due to all the above...SORRY!
