My boss took one look at me this morning, told me I looked like hell, and pointed me to the nearest walk in clinic.
I was thrilled that there was no one there when I walked in, because we all know you usually catch more in the waiting room of a walk in clinic than you had before you got there. I was immediately ushered into room number one, and there I sat.
For a good 20 minutes!!
WTF?? I suppose the doc could have been doing paperwork or something equally lame, but seriously, I was the only one there. The only one, with a POUNDING HEADACHE. He was probably watching his stories or something.
So now it's official. My cold is the jerk I thought it was, and my self diagnosis was correct. Sinus infection. On the scale of fun, a sinus infection ranks a big ol ZERO!! I am now armed with a wee FORTY DOLLAR bottle of pills (Did Dr. Stories not hear me when I said I DIDN'T have a drug plan???) and am home from work, where I plan to convalesce for the next....oh, hour or so, until I have to go pick up the toddler.
No rest for the infected!
