    Grrr. I was sick this weekend with a fever and sore sore throat, but I had no problem talking, only eating. Eating is a big deal to me since its hard to keep weight on, even with lifting and doing all the right eating, let alone not eating, so I lost I good 5lbs of mass because of this.

    Then it comes that my throat feels better and now I'm only congested, alright thats fine and dandy. I go to the doctor still because I didn't want it coming back and I thought it was a sinus infection or strept, he says its viral and doesn't give me anything. That sucks, because I go to the doctor maybe once a year because I usually never get sick, having a strong immune system after exercising, eating all my nutrients, and just being healthy overall. So I wind up going for nothing.

    At my work, the shift "manager", a guy that does all the bitch work of a manager but doesn't actually have a manager's title or even half his pay has now left for manager training. Well this sucks because he schedules everyone's shifts and he's really good with it, he understands what everyone wants and gives them shifts accordingly. Now I have some old, moronic manager scheduling my shifts and I get screwed only getting scheduled for one shift this week. Well that double sucks, because I skipped out on a lunch shift on saturday because I was serving and the last time I worked before that, I made literally a quarter of what I normally take in serving. Wow, so that means like no income for the last week and then only one day of work this week, awesome!

    I couldn't pick up a Monday shift, because no one wanted to give it up, usually everyone leaps to give away their shifts because they have other stuff going. Well, thats another $100 I can't make for the night, sucks for me. Tuesday rolls around, alright I'm still congestion but I'm working. I start to sound like ass, getting all horse, which probably makes the patrons feel all at home because I'm waiting on them and I have a horse voice and can barely talk...great for tips. Well I make do, I still walk out with $100 cash in hand...thats nice. I picked up a Wednesday shift from this dumb chick that wanted to give it away. Alright, awesome...another $100.

    Not awesome, I wake up this morning and can't fucking talk. Can't say a damn word. I'm a mute now and I can eek out a few raspy words if I hold my adams apple. Sometimes I talk and words are vocalized, sometimes not. Fuck, i had to give away my shift tonight because there's no way I can serve if I can't talk to a table. There's another $100 out the window.

    Girlfriend is at her parents barbie dream house, that they built a couple years ago when she first left for college, 1 1/2hours away from me in Pennsylvania. I can't even talk on the phone with her and apparently she posted her keyboard so no AIM or talk for us today. She wants to go to the beach tomorrow and then out for her friend's birthday which means even if i get my voice back and i can pick up a shift tomorrow night, she's not going to want me to work because she'll be staying with me and won't have anything to do while I'm at work. Minus another $100. Well I'm batting 1,000 this week and I've not made $300 so far that I would have made. Now I don't have any huge bills, just a cell phone and a lot of gas mileage but it would be nice to have the income and to be that much closer to buying a WRX outright, rather then having to finance a couple grand on the thing.

    Going to the doctors at 2:15.

    God damnit, damnit all to hell. if you read this, props!

    Me too except even though it was bad today, when I went it was so damn gooooood. :D

    Scenario;
    I get called into the doctors office, hot, young, blonde nurse takes me into the room. She does all the background stuff, she's sweet and told me that she's just going to rewrite all the old stuff so I don't have to talk and hurt. She tells me she has to do to swabs for a strept test, but she's going to do them both at once so I don't have to gag twice. She swabs, I try my hardest not to gag, she pulls them at and I make a noise and she says, "don't you hate that?" Stiffy time.

    Get done with the nurse, talking to her a bit. Checking her out. She leaves, I'm left alone. I start to get nurse fantasies dancing through my head...

    Doctor comes in, middle aged woman that was nice. She does her deal, I talk as best I can to describe all my symptoms because most doctors will leave without a full analysis if you don't give them absolutely every detail. After going to the doctor once, him blowing it off, and me still sick as a dog, I wanted to make sure this went right. She checks my throat and all that good stuff, tells me the strept test came back negative and it looks like i have tonsilitis and possibly mono as well. Yeah, i tell her that sucks and blah blah blah. She tells me I'm going to get two shots and leaves.

    Another nurse comes in takes my blood, admires my vascular arms and my "pipeline" veins. She leaves

    Que the hot young blonde nurse back into the room. Oh baby. She sees me at the sink drinking some water, which she offered some cold water before that I passed up, but now I know I have to give a urine sample so I have to drink up. She sees and offers me a cold glass of water again, aww how sweet. I told her no thank you, I'm just drinking up because I have to do the old "pee in a cup" routine and she smiles. Then she informs me of the two shots, I already know that I'm getting.

    Que porn music, here. The antibiotic is a big gauge needle, so its a fun one. "Since the antibiotic is a big shot, usually we give it in the backside." Sweet, she's going to see my squaters ass (if you lift weights and squat, you know what i'm talking about. if you don't, understand that girls constantly grab and stare at my ass, especially at work, along with complimenting me on it. thank you squats =) She has me take down my pants, gives me the shot in the ass and then starts rubbing my ass. Why thank you, cutie. Rub, rub, rub away. "You may want to massage that later" Nah, perhaps I'll have her massage it later. Pull up my pants, zip up, and the next shot goes in the arm. She stands there with the shot, holding my arm and goes "lucky you, you have no bodyfat" so the shot isn't going to go through so much fat tissue. She holds my arm and says, "is your arm so tense, i can't tell...its so hard. *smiles*" No baby, but it will be hard for you. Damn shot in the ass almost made me pass out, it made me dizzy as fuck. I asked her if it was usual and she said about 75% of people who get it, do feel that way. She helps me to the table and sets the table up so i'm nice and comfy. She leaves and comes back to check up on me. Hell no, I'm not going to pass out infront of this hot piece, so when she asks if I'm alright or if I want to lay there for another minute I suck it up and get up right away.

    Time to go pee in a cup. On the walk down the hallway she's making small talk with me. She asks me how old I am and then sees my last name. She asked me if I knew so and so, because she was engaged to someone with the same last name as me. After talking a little bit, she tells me how much I have to fill up the cup but that it'd be "cool" if I filled it up a little extra. Okay, anything for you baby.

    I get test results back on mono on friday I think.

    One was an antibiotic and the other was to reduce the swelling in my throat. I had to piss in the cup for the same reason why they took blood, for analysis.

    Antibiotics won't CURE viral infections, but then again nothing we know of will. Antibiotics however will help reduce the symptoms so perhaps I can eat, talk, or just function basically now. And I did get a prescription for oral antibiotics, but injection is always a better, more efficient method.

    And my story was what happened. :) When I was there and when she smiled, I knew I could have her if I wanted. Perhaps if I go back, but there's still that pesky thing called a girlfriend.
