At the doctor's office today, I got some good news and some bad news.

Bad news:
1. The reason I get chronic sinus infections could be a direct result of having my nose broken. Thus, I might have to have the nose job I've been putting off for years. I mean, I hear those are really, really painful.

2. This sore throat I have is just going to get worse, as it is the result of a viral infection and must be allowed to run its course. Eventually, ulcers/sores will develop on the back of my throat. Basically, the doctor said it would be like having the back of my throat covered in canker sores. The pain I'm feeling now is just from the pre-sores....oh crap.

3. I'm definitely infectious. Sorry Bonnie! Of course, I had to get it somewhere....This virus (known as hand, foot and mouth disease) has an incubation period of 3-6 days, so I'm looking at you, Typhoid Maggie!

4. Because of my anatomically defected nose (Doc's words, not mine!) and my tendency toward sinus infections, the doctor said it is very likely I will develop a sinus infection on top of this viral infection. Hooray!

Good news:
1. Umm, there's no more bad news?
