Of Health and Happiness

Well, it’s been a heck of a week. I had a bit of a cold at the start and then wound up with a “demonic eye” – blood red, puffy and sore. No itch or gunky stuff but “wake you up from a good sleep” sore. I went to the doc and he confirmed it was a very nasty case of conjunctivitis and wrote out a script for drops. It looked great in the mirror – almost glowing red – shame it was so sore.

It then took about 3 days before I was comfortable looking at computer screens. That was the worst part of it.

The scary part of all this was that when I arrived at the clinic, the receptionist said “Hi Grant, go straight on through to the waiting area” – yikes – they know me by sight. Have I been there so often? Turns out that yes, in the past 8 months I’ve gone to the doctor more than I’ve been in the past few years. While some trips have been to take Nykolai, I have been sick way more this year than any other so far.

Wonder if there’s something about the building I’m working in at the moment…
