Subject:SO SICK!
Time:09:36 pm
My tonsils are full of pus, it hurts like hell to swallow, and I just blew my nose in such a way that my ears won't get back to normal pressure. I slept 16 hours from Saturday-Sunday. I haven't worked or gone to any classes since Saturday. I went to the doctor yesterday... of course it's the flu and there's nothing he can do about it. It's all been bearable until last night, because I've been sleeping through the worst of it. But the cough started. And it kept me up all this morning... and I'm just ready for it to be gone already!!!

If the doctor didn't check my ears yesterday but today it feels like I was swimming and can't get the water out of my ears, should I go back?

I'd go back, not only for the ears--which usually get back to normal within a day, but for the cough which is keeping you up. I'd ask for codeine cough syrup, because its affecting your sleep.

Other than that, you know what to do, fluids and rest. And don't forget to eat, your body needs energy to fight the virus!

When I've had fluid in my ears like that, my doctor told me to take Sudafed, the real "go to the counter and show them your driver's license" kind. The decongestant in it helps to dry it all up.

:( I hope you feel better soon! Let me know if there's anything I can do.

Ugh, I am sorry. Being sick sucks. Thinking healthy thoughts for you.
