With the impeccable timing I'm known for, I have returned from Las Vegas with a miserable illness. I'm not exactly sure what it is yet, but it appears to involve a sinus infection and tonsillitis.
Of course, this wouldn't be nearly such a big deal under ordinary circumstances, but this week is NOT the time for me to have a sore throat considering that I have band practice every single night and then, oh yeah, TWO gigs this weekend for which I am singing 38 songs per evening.
When I started feeling cold-y yesterday, I started with the Zicam swabs right away. I also added some multivitamin packs to my regimen and even drank some weird and slightly yucky "Throat Coat" tea.
Today I feel worse than ever and I'm dying to get a look at my tonsils but can't seem to find a flashlight anywhere.
Obviously I need to do whatever I can to fix this as quickly as possible. Looks like my lunch break is going to involve either a doctor visit or a trip to urgent care so I can get a strep test and procure whatever drugs are going to make this start getting better immediately.
I'll cut this short because my eyeballs hurt...oh, and I have to shower and get ready for work. Heavy sigh.
