Thursday proved me wrong. Stayed off work, walking with a cane and genearlly being slow. And, later on, hacking up great big lumps of silly-putty looking lungfoam with embedded razor blades. Some of the coughing fits left me unable to breathe. Some made me feel like I was going to throw up.
Last night was not fun. When horizontal, I found that there's a total of one position in which I don't end up coughing so much I can't breathe. I also found that almost drifting off makes me slide out of that position and thus cues pain.
So my back's fucked, I have a stupidly painful chest infection type thing, and also what feels like flu-based symptoms. If it were just one thing, I could deal with it. But no, several bad things. I can't sort out a way to deal with them, and thus I feel like crap.
Doctor in two hours. Might get some hope back from that.
