To Charleston and Back Again

I'm back. I spent the last week in Charleston, South Carolina training on a new database system with my boss. Let me tell you, database training is not all it's cracked up to be. It was a long week but I survived and am now back to work in Chicago. I must say, I do love Chicago.

While I was out of town I got a call from my general doctor. For the past 10 months or so I've had constant ringing in my ears, popping everytime I open my mouth or swallow, headaches and pressure in my head. I went to an ear nose and throat specialist and for months was on every kind of allergy medicine I could think of, including self-delivered shots (more injections? yay!). Nothing changed. My doctor didn't listen and insisted on allergies. I don't like doctors who don't listen so I went back to my general doctor. She sent me to get a CT scan of my sinuses to see what was actually going on. So, she called while I was out of town to tell me that the report shows I have chronic sinusitis that needs 'immediate intervention.' Sounds like fun huh. I have an appointment today with a different ear nose and throat specialist. I'm hoping he gives me a magic drug to clear it up. If not, surgery may be discussed. At least I know what's wrong with me, and isn't that half the battle sometimes?

I see there are many many blogs I haven't read this week. I'll do some work, read some blogs, and post again later.
