teh sick, still

So I'm still feeling pretty miserable. I went back to work on Tuesday, after staying home to rest on Monday. On Tuesday my jaw started hurting again really bad, and I was coughing a lot, so I made a doctor's appointment.

When I got to the doctor's office on Wednesday morning, my cough had decided to duck and cover (I had a coughing fit on the way in, however). Doc said I had allergies, and that the jaw pain was related to TMJ. He prescribed some Allegra and told me to come back if I wasn't feeling better in a few days.

I'm still convinced that it's a burgeoning sinus infection. My cough is back, and I coughed all through last night, and I'm coughing so much here at work that I'm literally gagging from it. My co-workers are looking at me with pity and asking me if I'm alright. No, I'm not quite alright.

This sucks a LOT. Wanna know why? Hmm? Well, The London Trip is coming up in TWELVE DAYS, and I don't wanna be a sickie then. And I don't want to be on a plane with a sinus infection - that's just bad news all around. I want to feel better. Soon. Preferably by, like, now.

On the good side of things, my back is has been doing pretty well the last few days. *Sigh*
