day 2 of life on the couch. after not being able to fall asleep until way past 1am i slept in until 10. while falling asleep and when i woke up i was very surprised to find myself breathing through my nose with my mouth closed. that was huge for me because this sinus infection has affected my breathing so much it’s not even funny.
still amazed at this new found breathing ability i somehow managed to crawl out of bed, take a shower, get dressed and have breakfast. then at the speed of a slug i made my way to work because i had to hand in my sick notice. it was a nice day so i figured some sunshine and fresh air wouldn’t hurt. i also had to do some grocery shopping (apples, grapes, grapefruit and all other sort of produce that contains vitamins) so i needed to get my ass out of the house anyways.
needless to say that by the time i was in my apartment again i was done. utterly exhausted, tired, super snotty, and everything else in between. there is no way to deny it, i am still sick. my body is weak, i am not hungry and only eat because i know it’s time to eat and because the medication i take needs to be taken with food. i hope that in a few days and with more sleep i will be back to my usual happy self.
for now i am wondering how much snot a person can actually produce, how one liter of tea can result in SO MANY bathroom breaks and when exactly i will run out of kleenex tissues.
