Let's get in a little time machine and go back to April 2002. Whilst helping my mother prep and paint the upstairs of the house, I start dealing with a killer sore throat and fever. Within two weeks, I still have that killer sore throat, and the infection has moved into my ears and lungs. Hello, bronchitis. Hello, fluid on the lungs. Hello, perforated eardrums. I didn't start feeling better until... oh, July.

Back to current day... it's late March 2005. I have a killer sore throat and a fever. I can feel the infection moving into my ears, and every once in a while it feels like someone is squeezing my lungs so hard that I can't breathe (and only manage this strangled wheeze).

I am so tired and frustrated that I could cry. I refuse to go through another SW opening so sick that I have no choice but to be seriously medicated on codiene based painkillers and cough suppressants (like I did for AOTC), but right now I can't help but wonder if history is repeating itself.

Going to call the doctor and get an appointment as soon as I get into the office and hope he can fit me in today. Please, please, please, please...

Note: corellian_sugar adores Vader, but she doesn't necessarily want to SOUND like him. Thank you.

I have an appointment for 10:45 a.m. Thank GOD. Out the door for the doctor in just a few minutes, actually. Cross your fingers, baby. Otherwise we can both go to C3 as the Vader twins, complete with inhalers.

And I've been wheezing and sounding like a frog. Although I don't have Paula's asthma history.

I'm glad you're seeing the doctor; I will to if I'm not better next week. I found out the hard way a few years ago that ignoring the cold that isn't getting better = bronchitis and then walking pneumonia.

I hope things clear up soon.

If they do give you painkillers, hold on to them, you might need them for ROTS (during or after).

Hmmmm. Very good point. First I have to see how loopy they make me, though. If they're like the ones I was on for AOTC, I'll be so out of it that I won't even know I'm watching E3. Ugh.
