Sickness and Frustration

It has been nearly a week since I woke up with what seemed like just another sinus infection, or if I were lucky, allergies. I should have gone to the doctor then, but I worked. I even went in Friday, despite having a fever when I woke up. All this, I did because I have trouble admitting when I'm actually sick enough to do something about it and because I have so much trouble changing my habits. I have to suspect there were I to have listened to my symptoms sooner, I would at least be better than I am now. Instead, I my sinuses are still dripping. My ears are so stopped up it feels as if I have earplugs in and my own voice sounds to me as though I were yelling through a kazoo. As if that weren't enough, I'm having episodes of severe vertigo when I stand for more than a few minutes, especially after I have a coughing fit. Take from this that you should listen to what your body is trying to tell you and see a doctor as soon as you think you're getting sick, especially if you have good insurance as I do. Don't put it off, or you'll probably pay the price for it sooner rather than later.
