Thanks everyone. Whatever I do have is still going, I did a tele-medicine visit and the doctor there (Not my regular one, but it's free through work) thinks it's some persistent GI bug. I'm gonna take Loperamide as a prescription (can have 8 a day instead of the OTC recommendation of 4).

They actually got deep enough to dislodge some congestion afterward, so it wasn't all bad in my case.

I do not have the RONA! I just got the call that I don't have it. However, whatever I do have is in the end stages, and my boss already has coverage for me for today and tomorrow, so he said to go ahead and take the weekend off. He also gave me his blessing to call in Monday morning and tell him I still don't feel well. I have an AWESOME boss.


So glad you don’t have the Kung Flu.  I actually know people now with it.  My Aunt & Uncle are pretty sick wih it, said it’s like a bad flu.  And they gave it to my 91 yr old Grandma, who so far just has bronchitis type symptoms.  Same with Father in law, who just has a bad cough.  Must say I agree with @loire and it can heck the heck off!

Like Sloth, I would ask you to choose another name for the Rona. I do not believe you meant any harm. I hope your family get's over it, and I join you in wishes for it to heck the heck off.

My little brother had a nose swab for flu like 10+ years ago and he ended up having a seizure right after >_> (he had mono, and he used to get tiny seizures when he'd have a fever). We joke that the doctor tickled his brain xD

Still recovering. Little Bit scratched my eyelid yesterday and it's inflamed today. I have some topical antibiotic I'm using on it. I'd rather not take an oral antibiotic. With all the GI issues I have going on I'd prefer not to harm what Gut Flora I have. Woke up sweaty in the night, and haven't felt cold since. I've checked my temp a few times and was not running a fever. I am low energy and am assuming my body is diverting power from propulsion to the immune system.

The human body often does that. May I suggest calorie dense foods that are easy to digest? The immune system works better when adequately fueled.

I'm starting to feel better. I'm planning to go to work tomorrow. Boss texted me to ask how I feel and assure me I can still call in tomorrow if needed. We did church today, and I actually cooked lunch. Unfortunately, I was disappointed in the way it turned out and don't care to write about it. It wasn't bad, just not up to par. However, I did cook. It tired me, but I recovered. So some other things, my GI issues have setteled apparently, nothing has happened for some time which means the loperamide has kicked in. Sometimes it over corrects and you have to wait a while for things to normalize, but whatever. My eyelid is annoying me but it does appear to be slowly getting better. In other news, we ordered a New A/C unit and it will be here Wednesday. It's still blowing cold but it's over 30 years old and the drip pan is rusted and the sludge keeps clogging the drain line. Something was bound to go out at some point. Also, this old unit has weird air filters I have to custom order. The new unit should be far more energy efficient.

 

For dinner I really wanted junk food, so we are getting a family meal from a chain called Wayback via delivery. It has two burgers, chicken strips, onion rings, and fries. It's perfect for two hungry people who don't want to make decisions. This chain also apparently offers O-fries (a mix of fries and onion rings, again enabling indecisive people).
