So I'm thinking about maybe going back to the doctor. I finished my antibiotics yesterday morning. I still have sharp chest pain when I breathe, breathe deeply, cough or sneeze. Pretty much all the time. I'm going to see how it goes today. I hear Bride of Rove in the back of my head...("Why do people wait so long to go to the doctor?!") Okay, okay.
Speaking of pity-parties, Politico has a piece today about those poor congressional staffers and the mean people who call them names. Many of those staffers pull in a six figure income, although in a previous piece, Politico points out that some barely cover rent. At any rate, nobody should have to deal with insults on a regular basis regardless of income, but hey, life is hard and life in Washington is very hard. My beef with the Politico piece is that they would have you believe it's only Republicans calling names. Bah.
I got a huge kick out of Little Miss Attila taking the Tea Party Crashers to school! Hilarious!
I'm off to work now. We've got State testing this week - Egads! Hold it down.
Update 5:30 p.m.: Yeah, I went ahead and saw the doctor again today. He's going with pleurisy but sent me for an x-ray to be sure. He said to take massive doses of over the counter Aleve for the pain, but I've already called back with a request that he call me in something. I'm not comfortable taking 3x the dose on the box 4x a day. If you can't make it go away then give me enough pain meds to live with it until it does. Period.
