Since last weekend I have had a dull headache and some minor congestion. By mid week I realized that I probably had a sinus infection, but tried really hard to treat it at home. But it seemed to be getting worse and yesterday I was so tired. I took my temperature at work and was running a low grade fever. I called my doctor yesterday to see if they would call in a RX for some antibiotics, but of course they wouldn't. When I woke up this morning my head was killing me and my nose was so sensitive. I decided to go to the doctor. Thankfully they were able to get me in late this afternoon. Yes I do have a sinus infection, but the surprising thing is I also have an ear infection in my left ear. My ear started hurting a few days ago, but I didn't think too much about it. At the doctors office I had still had a fever of 100.2. It's amazing how draining a fever is. I could barely keep my eyes open today and seemed to be in a zone. So now both Sophie and I are on antibiotics. I am going to need to make a schedule to make sure we both get our meds and more importantly, that I don't accidentally take her pills.
The last time I went to the Doctor was in June and it was not a pleasant experience. My Doctor was so rude and really made me feel bad about my weight. They had trouble taking my blood pressure and they kept taking it over and over again in the same arm. By the time they got a reading it was 150/100. The Doctor said that I needed to be on blood pressure meds and wrote out the RX. I told her to look through my file and she would see that I don't have a history of high blood pressure. She still told me that I needed to take this medicine. Well, I didn't fill the RX because I knew my pressure was high because they kept taking it in the same arm. My Doctor was out today so I saw someone different and I think I am going to change doctors. My blood pressure was perfect at 126/78 and this new doctor was really nice and listened to me.
As I was checking in they had my file sitting on the counter and I glanced down at it and in big letters at the bottom of the information sheet it said, "GAY". I found that kind of odd because I am not sure what being gay has to do with my health. It really didn't bother me, but I just found it odd. Oh well....
Susan is coming down tomorrow and I am planning on making her dinner tomorrow night AND breakfast Sunday morning. I have no idea what is getting into me, but suddenly I feel like being domestic. We had talked about going out to dinner, but as she said the other night, "Do we really want to waste 2 hours going OUT to dinner?" Yea, I think we will stay in.
