Emma vs viral infection- I'm totally losing.
It's just not fair. I've sick for a week and it's affecting every aspect of my life. I know I'm being self- pitying but I can't help it. I never get this sick. Ever. I had to miss school twice this week because of different byproducts of this virus. It started last week around thursday with a little coughing. Then Friday it was more coughing with chills at night. It's been getting harder and harder to sleep. The next day it was coughing, chills, a stuffy nose and headaches. I went to the doctor on Sunday: mucinex, sudafed, and advil have been part of my diet ever since. Monday I went to school but felt awful the whole day, and that night I didn't sleep till 6 am due to all the coughing and my inability to breathe through my nose. I missed school Tuesday and sat a home all day with tissues. My condition did not improve much, but I couldn't miss Wednesday: I have four ap classes and a show coming up. I think that was the day blood started showing up in my mucus. It was the day my war wouldn't pop: it felt like I was wearing one ear plug till Saturday. Thursday gave me false hope of improvement, until I got home and found white mucus in my eyes: viral conjunctivitis, I learned when back at the doctors that afternoon, was the cause. I missed a big test in calculus and my presentation in ap lit that Friday. Presently, the conjunctivitis has infected both eyes and I am back in bed with tissues. I am thoroughly upset with my depressed state of being, and I am extremely stressed. My grades will suffer tremendously: my work is fast paced and missing more than one day puts me at a large disadvantage with ap tests in only a few weeks. If I do not get better soon, I am sure to go mad.
