THE BIG QUESTION:
is it allergies or is it a cold? (Or am I just a whiny bitch?) I woke up in the middle of the night last night and my throat felt like flank steak run through a weedwhacker. And I was covered in sweat. Woke up this morning to little improvement.
THE MYTH OF SHOWERING:
so say, like me, you have these intermittent night sweats, and a maybe cold maybe allergy attack, but you know you have to go to work.
So you brew some coffee, take a shower and voila! you feel SO much better!! So say you get to work, and upon getting to work you realize that the shower was a trick played on you by an angry god. And now you are feeling like shit, with no ibuprofen, and your throat hurts and your eyes feel like they’re going to fall out of your head.
Just imagine. If you had not taken a shower, then sure you may not have made it to work and you might have been stuck in your attic apartment on an 85 degree day, but you might also have had the foresight to at least bring some medication with you to bolster you through a day of work that is already promising to be more taxing than you ever could have imagined.
