The One in Which I Look Like a Vampire

So I told you guys about how I spent my birthday sick in bed in my dorm, with a rash, a sore throat, and a fever- right?
Oh, I didn't?
How about Valentine's Day when I was stuck in bed with a fever and woke up the next day with weird puffy/splotchy eyes?
I have a real talent for the special days, I think.

Here goes...

I mean, Valentine's Day I was already kind of freaked out because I had thrown up essentially nothing (... 7 times) Sunday night in the wee hours of the morning.
Monday was spent with a fever, and Tuesday was spent with a headache and just a bit of dizziness.
I thought I was getting better!
When I woke up with crazy eyes today, I started bawling.

My absolutely wonderful friends from fellowship drove me to the UCLA clinic, sat with me in the waiting room, and waited through my 3 hour appointment- that's love.

I would mention the fact that I detest needles, but I sincerely doubt there's someone out there who likes them.
So I'll keep my complaints to myself.

Sarah and I were, however, treated to apple juice on the house!

And for some reason, the lights in the room turned my phone's camera into some sort of soft-focus lame-o.
So just ignore the lighting and my kind of crazy expression- it was a long day.

The best part of the day was when I found my doppelganger- vampires!
Anyone who has seen a picture of a vampire from Vampire Diaries has seen the creepy veiny thing that happens to their eyes when they're about to grow fangs or whatnot- that's what my eyes looked like.
I accentuated my veins a bit in the picture to match, but really, it's a dead ringer.

Edit to add: And just in case you guys were worrying, it turns out this was just a virus and all should be well within the week! I'm feeling better already.
