Iyouboushi On September - 29 - 2010

Something bit me. I don’t know what it was or how it did so, but something bit me on my chest. I know when I went to bed at midnight I didn’t have it but at 5 am I woke up with seething pain and feeling completely awful. I managed to basically push it aside and figured it’d go away on its own after a few hours and went back to sleep.

Woke up five hours later and my stomach was churning so bad (and I eventually threw up). My head was spinning and the bite mark was still extremely sore, though the size of it had gone down considerably.

Around 11 am Bri was online looking up bite marks and we couldn’t find anything that matched what I had. However, every site we went to told us that the person bitten was feeling nauseous and sick they needed to go to the doctor. So I decided to just suck it up and go.

Sat in the waiting room for over two hours before I was finally seen. The cost of just BEING there (no tests, just walking through the door and signing in)? $137. Anyway, just when I thought I couldn’t take it any more I was finally seen and the doctor basically told me that without knowing exactly what it was that bit me there wasn’t much they could do for it. She prescribed some anti-nausea pills to help cure that part of it at least.

I also told her about my on-going ear problem (297 days now) and she checked. She said that she COULD see fluid trapped behind the ear drum but there was no infection. She said that the best thing to do for that was to take an anti-histamine. Now, I had tried benadryl before and told her that but she says you have to take anti-histamines for a month (sometimes more) before they really do you any good. I was only taking it a day or two at a time and usually only at night (since it would knock me out). She gave me a prescription for a good antihistamine that is supposedly non-drowsy. She also gave me a small sample of, but not a full script of, a prescription nose spray to use and said to try both together. With luck the anti-histamines will dry my ears out and the nose spray will help clear up my sinuses and help the Eustachian tubes drain.

But here I am now, like 8 hours later from the doctor, and I don’t really feel much better. The anti-nausea stuff makes me so drowsy that when I took it I basically passed out for five hours without even really knowing it. I woke up and still felt awful though. I’m about to go pass out again here shortly.

Whatever bit me needs to die. It ruined my day, ruined Bri’s day, and made me miss work (and it’s not like I get so many hours or get paid so well that I can afford to just skip a day). Thankfully, though, my boss is really understanding and my coworkers are awesome (both are willing to do whatever it takes to help me) so it got settled.

I’m praying like crazy that when I wake up tomorrow I’ll feel better.
