Oh, My God...I Hate this Cold!

All right so, I have this cold I got this Friday night. It's driving me insane. The dehydration is the worst part. I am drinking water CONSTANTLY, but when I sleep through the night I get bone dry and wake up with the worst sore throat imaginable. It's maddening. I have a humidifier right next to my bed, and am taking SO much medicine. I was told the antibiotics would dry me out, too...and I'm guessing they are. This sucks so bad because I can't do anything but be sick. Like an idiot, I went out into the frigid air Saturday night, thinking this was just going to be some brief little sniffle...I had no idea it would turn into a major ordeal. I'm sure that made it worse, as it has been stupidly cold here the last several days.

Oh, yeah...I promised to start putting pictures on all my blogs, topical or otherwise. So here is a picture of me being sick.

Yes, I'm drinking toxic waste, mother!
Eh...that's not a very attractive picture so I don't want it to be the thumbnail on the blog. So, here is a picture of Allison Scagliotti wearing goggles:

Much better

Okay, so that's what's going on in my life. I'm pretty sure I'm not going to die. Amanda is taking very good care of me, and she was lucky enough to get a snow day today so she gets to stay home and take care of the King of the Dragons all day. Yay for her. Well, she was planning to take a half day anyway because I have an appointment with a dental specialist today regarding my jaw problems. I had to wait a year for the dental insurance to kick in because there is a one-year waiting period for pre-existing conditions when you sign up for the insurance. You guys that are against socialized medicine hear that? I had to wait a full year for treatment under private health insurance for treatment of a condition I've had since birth. I don't normally bring up politics on this blog, but there it is.

Now that I've made some of you mad, I'm going to go lie down before my appointment. I hope to be better by the time I write this next blog. If you don't hear from me in a week, assume I'm dead.
