What, Why? Not Now Please

I’m pretty sure I still have my sinus infection, but I’ve been getting distracted by other things recently. First off, all the muscles in my neck and back feel like I’ve been hit by a truck: miserable, sore, knotted. Second: today, after class, I noticed a horrible pain in my neck, and realized that I have a very swollen lymph node. Third, the temporal side of my temporomandibular joint is insanely painful to the touch on my left. I’m concerned about it, because I don’t think I bruised it in any way, so I’m worried about possible infections or something. Fourth, my ear might be infected again. My ear smelled terrible yesterday, but it was crazy clogged up with wax. Hopefully, it’ll dry out (now that I’ve cleaned it out well) and be fine.

Oh, and did I mention I have one final Thursday and one next Tuesday?
