I woke up yesterday coughing my head off and I've had bronchitis enough over the years to know the signs. What's messed up is that it came on so damn fast. I was fine the day before. Anyway, I went into to work and was just miserable and kept feeling that way. I tried to stay away from the customer's food as much as possible because serious... I have no desire to be Typhoid Mary.

About halfway through the night I decided to go to the hospital and get some antibiotics to nip this in the bud before it got worse. The shift leader who was in charge and previously said I could leave early but changed her mind after we started getting busy and so I stayed until the end of my shift. Remember that nipping in the bud idea? Too late, after the doctor looked at my chest x-rays he informed me that I have pneumonia in my left lung, but thankfully its been caught early enough that I only have to miss a couple days of work (fuck, that's so going to hurt). I'm on antibiotics and steroids and though I'm so damn exhausted my heart feels like it's beating out of my chest and I can't sleep.

So I guess I'll just curl up with the dogs and cat and zone out until I lose consciousness. Damn, I hope that's soon.

Holy Crap. Pneumonia? And you're only going to miss a couple of days work? That's some impressive medication then.

My impression of pneumonia is very 19th century, so I tend to picture dramatic periods of convalescence and mustached fiances wringing their hands in the smoking room.

Anyway, I hope you'll be better soon!
