I was robbed, plain and simple!

  • Print

I can't remember when I last took a sick day off from work.  I am never sick!  I get the occasional cold, but never anything serious.  I can't remember the last time I needed an antibiotic for any reason!

So, a couple weeks ago, I woke up with a stuffy nose.  No big deal, pop a decongestant and go on.  Well, that sorta worked until the next couple days when I sneezed so often and so hard that I actually pulled a muscle in my neck!  So, add an antihistamine to the decongestant and go on.  Well, that worked until I woke up with a horrendous sore throat... so I add some ibuprofin to the mix and go on.

Keep in mind, that I never miss a day of work, I just take my over the counter stuff, a handful of vitamins, drink lots of fluids and wipe down the studio when I leave each day and go on.  Well, that works until I am home that weekend and try going without the OTC drugs for a few hours to see what happens... Fever happens... 102.4!  

SO... on the very first day of my vacation, I call the doctor's office (who can't believe they are hearing from me... I NEVER see them except for yearly checkups... been that way for the last 10 years or so...) go in and am told I have an acute sinus infection.  Here come the antibiotics... and of course, I can no longer just pop some OTC meds and go on... I feel like I've been beaten to death!  I am stuck on the couch for days.... DAYS... of my VACATION!!!

So yes, I was robbed.  At the next sign of a sniffle, I'm calling in sick!
