I did suspect as much,which is why i went to see a doctor on Friday.
I say a doctor and not my doctor, because i just got a new one, much to my surprise and against my will. But the clinic we go to closed and a new one was assigned to us, so there wasn't much we could do. But while i was very skeptical, i must admit new guy seemed both very nice and competent.
It's hard though, before our previous doctor, i'd only ever had really terrible doctors, and i really trusted our guy, which is so rare.
Anyway, throat thing is what's going on, but he told me to basically just chill, take it easy and see if it passes on its own. It sucks, cause i cough so much i can barely sleep, but on the other hand, i'm happy to try and avoid unnecessary antibiotic treatments, and i'm glad the doctor isn't the type to prescribe penicillin at the slightest sign of infection.
So i'm gonna be taking it as easy as possible this weekend, and hopefully this shit will just quietly disappear, and i'll go back to sounding more like myself and less like Marge Simpson with a drinking problem.
In other miserable news, i absolutely hate being back.
I had such a sad day yesterday, with just a bunch of little things going wrong. I felt jinxed.
And being in Copenhagen is making me uncomfortable on a whole new level.
Maybe it just means that we've had a really great trip (i knew that), and come summer we'll have adapted? I hope so.
Here are some pictures from, you guessed it, Tokyo!!
Yes, happier times. I may be back but my blog can stay in Japan a little longer, right?
Extra hot day in Yoyogi Koen with Allan and Jacob
Allan with our Japanese teacher Lindsay in our Koenji kitchen... if school had been half as fun as this, we might not have been in such a hurry to get out!
No, we don't speak Japanese quite yet, but we've made more progress than ever before thanks to that brilliant girl
At Inkrat's opening party... Allan spent a fortune on a bouquet, Japanese style!
Low clouds in Shinjuku
We have company coming later, though, and i don't even know how many people will be sleeping in our living room tonight, so we'll see how long it lasts... maybe i'll end up having to clean all over again on Monday!
I made Japanese comfort food for dinner last night, and then we watched Game of Thrones.
If Allan wasn't going to a show tonight i'd do the same thing all over.
Instead, maybe i'll re-watch some favorite Trek episodes. Yes, some sci-fi will be good for my soul.
