More than my usual sick for Xmas. The Swine Flu has left me with this awful mucus thing where anything I eat or drink, I end up with tons of mucus in my throat, sticky, clear goo. And I have to spend up to fifteen minutes or more spitting it out. And that's even if I drink just water. Never had anything like it in my life till this flu. And I can't get rid of it. I finally broke down and tried an antibiotic, but it didn't work and all it did was make me so sick to my stomach that after a few days on it, I puked. Nothing seems to help. So all I've done is make myself worse, cause now my stomach is sick from the antibiotic. I can't go anywhere for Xmas because I can't spend a half hour spitting up goo in front of anyone. Or possibly vomiting right after I eat. So on top of this horror, they never fixed the hot water in my apartment. It's still ice cold. And I think they have mostly taken off for the Xmas holiday. And the apartment is freezing cold, too. And I can't get them to work on the heat unless I can prove it's below 68 degrees in here. They deliberately have a non working thermostat in all the apartments. It's steam heat and the thermostat never moves ever and the maint guy said it doesn't work for steam heat. I actually spent money and ordered a wall thermometer so I can prove it's dropping way belong the legal temp in here. But I'm waiting for it to get here. I'm just so miserable this holiday season. And I'm still queasy as I write this. I just wish I could even have half my health back. I have no life from this. There is no enjoyment of life at all. And I don't know when it will ever end.
