In some ways, feeling better feels worse. Symptoms shift, and congestion and chest rumbles follow sore throat. The washed-out feeling continues to predominate. Last night, I got chilled about 5:00 a.m. when I got up to use the restroom and take some acetominephin.

I woke up this morning with my inner ears feeling warm and itchy. Not a good sign. So I went to the doctor today and got some drugs. Hopin' that'll help.

Meanwhile, I'm hoping to feel good enough tomorrow to drive over Cincy way and take a couple of young friends out for dinner. Then I'll stay over in the holler and bring home some stuff I need here.

I'm really feeling overwhelmed right now. My body is too tired to do much, my brain can't focus, collinsmom barely waves at me from her parallel track. (I do appreciate her washing up so much of my stuff from cobbler-dom this week.) Anyway, I'm not making progress toward my goals, so I get depressed because I'm falling farther and farther behind.

But, first things first: First, get over this damn whatever-it-is. THEN, fix everything else.
