Under the Weather

Today has been a struggle from the moment I woke up. I woke up with a sore throat. I kept snoozing my alarm because I didn’t want to get up and get out of my warm bed. I thought at first it was just the morning post nasal drip that made my throat hurt, but no.

I feel fatigued and my body hurts as well. I had an eye doctor appointment this morning at 10:30am. My eyes have been super sensitive to light and since I am legally blind in one eye, I had to make sure to get it checked out and make sure it was nothing serious.

Apparently my eyeballs have edema which means they are swollen. But my vision is good, everything looks good otherwise so just an anti inflammatory eye drop prescription for me and I got an eye drop over the counter that moistens my eyeballs. She said it could have to do with me being on the computer all the time for school and now that I am not working, I am spending more time on electronics. I need to take more screen time breaks and put a warm washcloth over my eyes before bed to help calm the swelling.

All in all, I think that’s all good news. If the prescription doesn’t help in three days, I gotta call back and be seen, but there isn’t much else they can do since my eyes are primarily healthy despite the lazy blind eye I have.

I did some shopping for stevia for my tea, soup for my throat, and red bull had a good deal on it so I bought a case. Plus the moistening eye drops. Shit is expensive, $50 bucks later and I feel like I hardly got anything.

I tried to eat lunch when I got home but didn’t have the appetite for it. Now that I think of it, I was rather ill feeling yesterday too. Maybe it’s just the flu, but I seriously doubt that it’s covid. I am drinking my orange herbal tea with honey and stevia now and it’s helping a little bit. But I definitely still feel fatigued and achy.

I just want to cuddle and complain to someone that I am sicky and have them take care of me. Maybe I should just take a nap so no one can listen to me whine about my first world problems. LOL. Hopefully this turns around soon and hopefully I can be better tomorrow so that I can work on my scholarship applications, remaining school work, and other tasks.

So long friends!
