So very sick.
Can't swallow, so have been subsisting on liquids and things dipped in liquids for two days. Spent nineteen consecutive hours in bed last night/this morning. Woke up every two hours either shivering or drenched in sweat. Feeling dehydrated, but even drinking water hurts.
Went to immediate care facility yesterday afternoon (thanks to Interesting Development, who insisted on taking me, waiting around, and taking me back home, even though he's on a push to write 1,000 words a day for 25 days), and they're doing a Strep culture even as we speak. In the meantime, I deal with it. They even offered me a Vicodin prescription for the pain. I turned it down, but now I'm regretting it, just a little, because constant nagging pain will wear you down.
And I'm not working. Fuck.
