A Hard Few Weeks

by Wendy Copley on November 10, 2007


I haven’t been blogging lately because I haven’t had much to write about. I’ve basically been sick, or working for the last two months and I don’t really think anyone cares to read a big (or little) post about that. In short, I haven’t wanted to be a big whiner so I’ve been avoiding blogging.

But there’s nothing sadder than an abandoned blog, so I’m going to force myself to write a post. It’s probably going to be a little whiny from this point on though, so if you’d like to move along, Internet, I’ll understand.

Remember how I was sick back on my birthday? Well, I never fully recovered and I’ve been feeling anywhere between very sick and merely tired ever since then. A couple of weeks ago, it all bubbled to the surface again and I got really sick — fever, white spots on my tonsils, and very, very tired. I had to take three days off work and I made a trip to Kaiser, where the much better doctor took one look in my mouth and told me I had a secondary bacterial infection because I’d never fully kicked my illness back in September. He gave me a script for antibiotics and sent me on my way. They helped me feel significantly better, but my sore throat never went completely away. Now, about two weeks later, I have a raging sore throat and the white spots are coming back. I can’t even believe this is happening to me again! Seriously, I can’t believe it. I’m beginning to wonder if I have some kind of disease that doesn’t respond to antibiotics.

To top things off, I’m extremely busy at work. Probably what I need to do is take a week off work to just to sleep and rest so that I can kick this thing once and for all, but we have contractors coming in to work on our new site, we’re working with a design firm on new information architecture, and there are about 35 other projects in the pipeline so I just have to be there.

I promise, I’m going to start doing something interesting again soon.

Whining complete.
