0156C: Self-Medicating

I continue to nurse a rather sore throat - a condition that has made sleeping even more difficult than it already is in the summer heat and it hasn't helped my work efforts either. And while I remain productive, I know that I'm not at my best right now and I'm falling a tad short of the personal goals that I set myself for each work shift. It's annoying since I want to get more things out of the way, but one cannot fight one's physical health in cases like this.

But still, it's pretty darned annoying. I hate not being fully productive when there's a lot to do. It makes it seem not quite worth my time to be at the office when I don't get my normal amount of work done. Then again, it would be far worse if I were absent. At least I'm still getting most of the work done, more or less. Fingers and toes crossed for now.

I've stepped up my medications though. Apart from the usual need for more water while avoiding coffee and sweets in general, I've decided to add in some Difflam throat spray into the mix in order to help deal with the pain a bit more directly. I could probably go as far as antibiotics at this point, but part of me wants to try and fight this bug off on my own. Call me crazy, but that's how I feel right now. in the meantime, wish me luck!
