Big update: I'm moving this weeekend, meaning I'm too busy to update much.|
Lesser update: forthedream.com/blogentries. I was going to post a companion piece to it on longhairedweirdo.blogspot.com, but I haven't gotten around to it (or even a square tuit that I can trim into a circle) so I figured it'd be pretty stupid not to say I'm updating the one, just because I haven't updated the other.
Bit of a question...
When is it wise to recognize that you probably have an infection and seek medical care?
Relatively minor TMI:
See, I had this monster zit above and in front of my left ear... the kind you can't help but notice, and touch, and wonder if you should lance it (or do the grosser equivalent). I never did anything, because it never came to enough of a head to lance, and it made me feel ever so mildly nauseous when I futzed with it. Now, I've got a minor earache... the kind where, if I stop and think about it, I can say "Oh, yeah, I've got a bit of an earache." I've also got this funny thing. Ever since my wisdom teeth were pulled, I tend to, every once in a while, get infections (or infected-like feelings) in the sockets from time to time. I've got that, too, only on the bottom left side. (The top doesn't usually get this.) I also have a headache with no cause, whatsoever, except, you know, moving, sleeping on a couch, and so forth.
Now, me, after all the talk about overuse of antibiotics, I'm usually willing to let my immune system battle bacteria. There are times, though, when I wonder if I'm just being overmacho, and I'm someday going to make myself (at best) completely miserable for much longer than I should be not getting antibiotics.
Well... it's time for me to get back to work. Take care, all, and I hope I'll update again on Sunday, from my new place, over a working DSL connection.
