So, for the last week or two I've been feeling pretty crappy - congested, coughing like crazy, overall achy and bleh. Now, the achy, I could explain pretty easily, as my office went paintballing on Friday, and I'm not exactly in paintball shape. I've got some impressive bruises, and my right arm was killing me the next day. But after a few days, I realized that there's no way the aches are still from paintball. I decided to head to the clinic near my office yesterday to get checked out (and get a vaccination at the same time, since they were doing those for free for Amazon employees). I figured it might be a sinus infection or something, so I figured some antibiotics and I'd be all right.

Instead, they decided that they needed to test me for whooping cough, because there's been something of an "epidemic" in the area. And, of course, it's rather contagious, so I can't go back to work until after the test comes back (and, if the test comes back positive, I can't go back until I finish up a round of antibiotics, which I've already started). I hate it - yes, I feel fairly miserable (the cough's gotten a little worse), but I hate that I can't DO anything. I'm working from home today (and probably tomorrow, since it takes 24-48 hours to get the test results back), which is hard to do. Overall, though, I just hate being sick. And thus, I go to LiveJournal to bitch about it. :)

Oof, yeah, that sucks! We've had a bunch of whooping cough around here lately, too (my boss's husband, among many others, had it). I hope it's negative, but sorry you're stuck doing nothing 'til results come back!
