02/16/2011 Late night shoots make me sick! Just kidding! Well kind of! After the late night shoot last Friday, I started to feel like I was getting sick, which is never good for a performer. By Monday, I felt terrible; headache, eyes hurt, sinus pressure, sore throat, coughing, stuffy but runny nose and achy all over. I had planned to get all of my materials sent out to various potential agencies, but that did not happen because I could not even focus on making myself breakfast. And I was supposed to have a vocal audition on Thursday for a cool production of The Phantom of the Opera. Instead I spent Monday afternoon at urgent care. Glad I could get in as soon as I did, but have never felt so much pain in my face. They thought initially that I had influenza so they said they had to swab my nose for mucus. Alright not a big deal, until they actually stuck a giant q-tip up my nose and I thought they could probably poke my eyeballs out from the inside out. It hurt so bad that I literally cried once the nurse left. I had to wait ten minutes for the results, which of course came back negative. Which is good, but I wish they would not have poked me so. I actually had a sinus infection and virus. Gross! They put me on some meds and I am trying to drink plenty and get lots of rest. I ended up having to cancel my audition for Thursday because there is no way I can belt out a high C the way I am feeling. It must not be meant to be this time. And Valentine’s Day dinner has to be postponed. Boo! I did schedule an audition next weekend for a production of Cabaret. And still plan on getting my materials out to the various agencies here in the near future. I just had a little set back. I am never one who can easily just sit down and relax but I know if I push it too much I will end up taking two steps backwards to get one forward. I forgot, I also went to a model casting this past Saturday for a runway show that is part of LA Fashion Week. I will be notified if I got it this coming weekend, so fingers are crossed. As an update, my puppy is feeling great and back to her normal wonderful self! Time to get some tea and just relax for the rest of the evening!
