So, I mentioned earlier that I started my exam season with 2 ear infections and a sinus infection.
It got worse. On Saturday night, I ended up in the emergency room because the pain in my ear was so bad.
It turns out I additionally have an acute external ear infection. Great! Another infection, just what I needed!
I missed an exam, and then missed the day it was rescheduled to. Fortunately, I’ll be able to reschedule it (again), this time to Monday, so I should be well enough to take it.
The kicker here is that in addition to being sick as a dog, I’m having trouble concentrating. I thought it was just because I was sick, but now I’ve poked around online a bit and found that the antibiotic I’m on (augmentin) is occasionally reported to have a side effect that affects concentration negatively.
Well, this sure has been an adventure this go-round!
I have a pile of documentation I have to take in to school (perscriptions, ER release notes, a note from my doctor, the reciept from seeing the doctor).
The timing on this whole thing couldn’t be much worse. At least now I can walk around without holding on to things all the time!
