So my cold turns out not to be a cold… Well, I never said I went to medical school but it seemed likely to me. Due to the weird pain I ‘ve been getting inbetween my shoulders, the doctor seemed to think I was having a heart attack when I phoned this morning.
Obviously I wasn’t.
Her other suggestion was that I had a stomach ulcer.
It didn’t seem likely either.
But I went into the doctors anyway, and spent an hour lying almost horizontal in the waiting room while everyone else got seen (I mean everyone else… even people who came in 45 mins after me got seen first… she obviously had decided I wasn’t having a heart attack by that point!)
And so it turns out I have an atypical chest infection. Which is kind of typical of me really. I can’t have a normal chest infection, no, I have to have an odd one. But atypical or not, I now have antibiotics and have been told/ordered to rest. Which is something I’m terrible at but I’m really going to have to do unless I want to feel like this for another 3 weeks.
So what do you do when you’re off sick? Think I need some suggestions as I’m currently just scowling at Colin and Justin’s 60 Minute Makeover… I’m not convinced it’s making me feel any better!
