Illness, day 5 1/2

Well, I finally went to the doctor today. After 5 1/2 days of knocking on death's door, I thought I might as well give it a shot.

Unfortunately, she said exactly what I thought she'd say: It's viral and just has to run its course. The other option is that I actually have Pertussis (the 'P' in the DPT vaccine, otherwise known as whooping cough). I find that a tad hard to believe since there haven't been any big whooping cough outbreaks in the area lately. In either case, stay away from me. Far, far away. You don't want a virus and you certainly don't want whooping cough.

I managed to make it through half of my calculus class tonight before feeling like I was going to pass out. At that point, the instructor allowed me to leave. I'm missing physics, which sucks, because I get lost if I don't go to class. Our book stinks and I can't teach myself out of the text like I can with calc.

I'm not real thrilled knowing that I'm going to get better, only to have 3 times as much schoolwork to do.

Thank goodness the semester is almost over.

Coffee was the medication of choice before theophyline (took that once, boy did it mess me up).

One study here cites all these "NEW" discoveries, which I find hilarious considering it's been a homeopathic remedy for forever.

In any case, that's a long winded way of saying "Go pour yourself a cup, girl!!"

I especially like the fact that it said the best benefits can be seen if you drink 6 or more cups a day. :)

:grabs a pot of coffee:
