- Day care centers
- Radio stations
Between the PayPal contract (now over...sigh) and the radio station, I've been working at least eight hours a day for 2.5 weeks. This may be good for my wallet, but it sucks for my health. On Tuesday I started having the first signs of a cold coming on. Thankfully the worst of them held off till after my interview.
Wednesday I was S-I-C-K. I showed up at the radio station feeling like crud but in good spirits. I did my annual rhyming traffic and weather at 6:59pm (my last traffic and weather report of my shift), made a quick stop at the Savitzkys', went home, and collapsed.
Thursday I had to change after work because I (eeeuw) spewed snot onto my top after my shift. I managed to make it through dinner with Warren and his extended family without spraying anyone. Still, I was run down and felt like crud.
Friday I worked again, this time having to show up at 6am for a 7am-noon air shift. Warren insisted on driving me and picking me up; as Murphy's Law would have it, he was more than 15 minutes late with the latter. We went to lunch, and when I went to the bathroom I hocked a big green loogie. This is when I knew I had a sinus infection. I called my ENT's office and got prescriptions for an antibiotic (Omnicef) and a stronger antihistamine (Zyrtec). I mostly slept the rest of the day.
Today I had to work from 5am-1pm. I think I'm starting to get better. In any case, I'm spewing goo less, although I was hocking more green loogies at the station till it was time for my Zyrtec dose.
Right now I'm resting, have the chills on and off, and feel like crud. I wish this thing would go away so I could have a life again. If I seem anti-social, it's just that I'm low-energy and I don't want to share this.
