Here's a little timeline of the past few days. Warning - some gross language may be used.
Monday, December 10 - Felt woozy in the morning but decided to tough it out and go to school. Got my fieldtrip form detailing a trip to Galaxy Land (indoor amusement park at West Edmonton Mall) in order to observe physics in a fun way, on Friday. This trip was to be free, too! Also deepened a friendship with my seatmate in math and tried a brownie. When I got home I was immediately whisked off to gramma's house for dinner. Things were pretty fun there, though my woozy feeling returned a little stronger and my little brother was observably stuffed up. On the way home while mom was buying booze I got out and bought three bottles of pop, and after I got home I read tumblr then went to bed as usual. Little did I know that pop would actually do something useful.
Tuesday, December 11 - Could barely breathe in the morning because of all the mucus, managed to hork some of it out. Mom decided that I'd probably caught what little bro had and kept me home for the day. Spent the day eating soup and doing some homework, and hanging on the forum chat. Felt less stuffed up but was extremely exhausted. Fell asleep on the floor beneath my computer before being awakened by older bro, then said bye on chat and went to bed. Except I couldn't sleep.
Wednesday, December 12 - At midnight every part of me was feeling heavy and sore. I didn't feel strong enough to walk, so about an hour later when I discovered that mom was still up Skyping with people, I moaned on my hands and knees and asked her to get me some gingerale. After explaining that I was scared of not being able to make it back up the stairs, she obliged and after finishing it halfway the only part of me that still hurt was my head. And I couldn't even tolerate the scent of my own gas. Goodness. Mom kept me home again. Talked about my day on the forum chat and I was ushered to bed at around 9-10 PM by Azzy and Muzza, because sleep is good for you. Couldn't sleep then either though.
Thursday, December 13 - Again at midnight I was awake, my nose and throat stuffed beyond belief. It literally hurt. Managed to hork about a gallon's worth of mucus out before 7 AM rolled about, horked out a little more when little bro was getting ready for school which triggered my vomit reflex and I literally threw up a good portion of the mucus. Mom again let me stay home, around noonish everything was pretty hunky-dory. Around the dinnertimes though my left ear was starting to hurt, and after a bit I thought it popped. Hurt pretty bad so I took some painkillers. Went to bed at 11 PM, but again I couldn't sleep.
Friday, December 14 (that's today) - At 2 AM my mom's BF came in the door and was surprised to see me in the middle of the living room floor holding some tissues up to my ear. After a quick analysis an ear infection was hypothesized, not as painful as it should've been because this eardrum had broken before, and I was told I'd have to miss the fieldtrip today. My response: "Awww, fuck." I hadn't gone to Galaxy Land since Grade 6.
So I slept on the floor in the livingroom, got 4 hours of sleep (the most since Tuesday), and when I checked on my tissues there was
And it was brown and bloody. Looked kind of neat in a way.
So, I have to go take a shower now and go to the doctor. I'll probably update with how well that goes when I return.
Update: That was the quickest medical trip ever. Have to take antibiotics when I get up, when I get home from school and before I go to bed =o until all the pills are gone.
Also got some chips, more gingerale and some throat lozenges.
Still really disappointed about Galaxy Land though.
Listening to: My ear draining out?
