Checking in to say I haven't fallen off the edge of the planet.
I haven't felt like writing here due to how I've been feeling. It's not anything serious--not that I know--but I've had a bit of a painful start to the year. There's something that has caused some distressing pain, although it hasn't been persistent. I did go to the doctor after worrying about it a couple weeks. I followed his advice for the past week, but the issue still hasn't gone away entirely. Looks like I ought to call the referred specialist next week.
To top it off, a sinus infection that I was treating and seemed like it was mostly cleared up came raging back out of nowhere a couple days ago. It's more painful than it ever was before and has kept me up for the better part of the last two nights. I did get a prescription for another antibiotic phoned in, which will hopefully start taking care of business soon. Half of my face is swollen, and yes, it hurts, sometimes a lot. I do think I have that under control with some extra strength ibuprofen left over from a recent prescription. Or so I hope.
I'm usually in pretty good health, which makes me more stressed about all this, not to mention feeling the actual discomfort. Here's hoping this sinusitis calms down this weekend and I can get the other thing checked out in the next week.
