This time last night – I can be completely honest – I did not think I would be here today. On Tuesday, shortly after the skunk thing, I started to feel very, very grungy. Grunginess developed into a wicked cold – throat, sinuses, the works. This time last night I was sitting on a chair in the living room, moaning and groaning about how I thought my head was going to explode. I thought for sure I’d have to skip today’s classes – didn’t want to – but thought I was going to have to. In yesterday’s POLI class I just couldn’t concentrate – my eyes hurt so much I just couldn’t focus on anything – it was all I could do to even keep the damn things open! All I can say is it’s a good thing I was using the recorder.
Then, at about 9pm I stood up and went into the kitchen, and within about 2 minutes of being in there boom! – my left sinus cleared and I was suddenly breathing through both nostrils. It was literally as sudden as that – air flowing cool and fresh through both nostrils – dizziness gone. Amazing. I then went to bed, and wouldn’t you know it but I actually slept quite well.
This morning I drove myself to school – I’m not hanging around outside for 30 minutes waiting for the bus when I’m like this – but other than that there hase been no real change in the routine. I actually felt almost human.
I’m going straight home after my morning classes, to lie down and catch a nap, then hopefully tomorrow I’ll be right as rain again and I can get on with my “edjamacation”.
Anyway, somewhat better I may be feeling, but I’m conscious that my prose isn’t as crisp or concise as usual, nor my thought processes as well defined, so I’ll leave it there for now.
