Sickness has struck the Shugart household.
Well, mostly it has struck me. Will had a cute little cough and then was over and done with it. I, on the other hand, self-diagnosed from the first spike of fever that a sinus infection had taken me down, post-migraine.
I write to you now from the comfort of my bonus room couch, with my steaming mug of chamomile tea and my chick flicks and Grey’s Anatomy on repeat, having missed publishing my first Monday blog post since launching Wamie’s World last July. And while I have no photos to share today, from a typically photography focused blog, I feel that sharing using the written word can just as powerfully convey the clouded vision of a sickly blogger.
I was conveniently taken down by a virus passed on by my loving family on the busiest work week I have seen since the Christmas holiday family photo session explosion of 2018. I curled up in an armchair for two days straight, editing my days away while clutching my box of tissues. I spent the nights clutching my eyeballs for fear they might pop out of my head due to the pressure building up behind them. And I coughed my way through work, popping cough drops like they were candy and huddling in my corner so as not to breathe on anyone.
Conveniently, all of the websites say that you might have a sinus infection if your symptoms persist for more than two weeks.
As a woman who has had far more than her fair share of sinus infections in her life, I would have to disagree with whomever invented them. More than two weeks is far too long to put up with this nonsense. Can I please just return to my normal programming?
Should you be happy and healthy today, enjoying the full use of your vocal cords, please appreciate your pressure free sinuses, your vertigo free days, and how little you require tissues on a minute by minute basis. I will be here, attempting to live a normal life while contemplating removing my sinuses from my body.
Until next time,
