Back to work - sort of

Monday, May 24, 2010

Today, after over a week of being disgustingly sick, I attempted to head back to work. That was a bit of a failure. By 2pm I was so tired I had to head home again. It was the longest 30 minute drive of my life - I thought I was going to fall asleep at the wheel the entire way.

I'm trying very hard to just pretend that I'm not actually sick, but it isn't working that well. I'm a lot better than i was last week at least. After seeing 3 doctors and taking what feels like every drug eveer invented, they finally managed to work out what was wrong with me. Then I got to do fun things like have a throat ultrasound. That was pleasant.

The only redeeming thing about having a doctor pressing an object the size of an electric razor into your throat and rolling it around for 20 minutes is that my doctor was kind of hot. That NEVER happens. Doctors are only hot in movies and on TV - real life doctors are always old and have ratty looking beards and spit a little when they talk. Ok, maybe that's a generalisatiion, but in my experience hot doctors are few and far between. So I could kind of forgive him for 20 minutes of extreme discomfort.

I'm off to see yet another doctor tomorrow - a specialist - so hopefully after that I'll be back to feeling my usual self. I can't wait - illness sucks.
