*cough* *wheeze* *sniffle*
Ick. It's been years since I've been this sick, and now I remember why everyone hates it so much. My head is stuffed, my chest rattles when I cough, and a feel sorta like a leaky faucet with the way my nose is dripping. In short, I'm a mess. (Gives me a renewed perspective on some of the suffering fanfic characters I read about though *G*)
You know what else? It totally sucks being sick when you live all alone, in a town far away from best friends and anyone who cares about you. My cat, however loving and cuddly, just can't sympathize or take care of me, and I'm sure my coworkers wish I would just keep my germs as far from them as possible... Therefore, I'm just going to whine about how I feel here on my LJ.
It just figures that this had to happen a couple days before my presentation. At least there's a chance that by the time I have to present, the worst of this will be over. The last think I need is to try and figure out how to take tissues with me to the speaking podium when I'm wearing a suit with no pockets, and not carrying any notes. Well, back to bed now for me. I still have to drag my ass into work in the morning...ugh.
