I have...

... a cold sore at the very back of my throat. Dr. Hanley isn't as loose with the script pad as Dr. Costa is, though, so I'm going to have to wait for it to heal (or go back next month: Heh, yeah, it's still there and still hurting...). Dr. Costa gave me an antiviral last year when this happened. Dr. Hanley, however, just gave me an antibiotic in case it's bacterial, and not viral.

It's viral. I know it is, because it's almost exactly the same as last year. But I'm taking the antibiotic anyway. I HATE it when doctors give me long courses of antibiotics. Because when I get a bladder infection, they give me these 15-day antibiotic courses, and I stop hurting after 5. When you have the attention span I do, it gets REALLY hard to remember to take that shit. I've had a low-grade bladder infection for MONTHS at a time, because it would get painful and bloody, and they'd give me 15 days of antibiotics, and I'd take 7 days worth, and the infection would hang around just below the surface- not really causing MUCH discomfort, but CERTAINLY letting me know that it's still there.

Well, I never finished the antibiotics from the bladder infection when I had gastritis in February. I sent Cal out to get me cranberry juice last night. Yes, I'm taking the Z-pack. It's FIVE DAYS. JUST the way I FUCKING like it.

And now... ugh. I want to stay up and do the paper that's already 2 days late, but you know what? I'm exhausted, my throat and ears hurt, and I want to go to bed.

Oh, and I have an Emerald on Treasure Trooper now. Woot woot! Doesn't do anything but look pretty, far as I can tell, though...
