non-book-related, work, sick, meds
Had a massive coughing fit at work yesterday and was convinced by all 3 bosses that I needed a doctor even though I knew they'd just tell me it was a virus and they can't help.
Surprise, it's a virus! But last time they said it wasn't worth treating the symptoms, this time they loaded me up with cough suppressants and a lidocaine gargle. Yay?
So, off to work again, drugs suppressing my illness just enough so I'm not a nuisance!
