10/20/2004 Entry: "More Head Cold"
I have a nasty head cold, and I stayed home from work sleeping off most of it. I don't think it will get worse, but I worry these days because of my annual antibiotic-cured infection. I have been achy and my nose and throat are sore. Bleah. Thank God I got that echinacea honey.
And thus endeth my almost 4 months without being sick. I had a good streak there for a while. I knew the change of seasons would be difficult. But to counteract some of the seasonal depression I am going to have, I have been investigating getting a light box. Apparently, some insurance companies will cover the cost, at least in part, if a doctor prescribes it. For those who don't know what a Light Box is, it's a huge panel of lights that simulate sunlight. I have been meaning to get one for a while, since when I was growing up, some of my friends had one. One of my friend's bother has one, and it's had a remarkable effect on him. If I can get my insurance to front some of the cost, at least to where it would be under $200 for me, I might go for it.
