So, my day in a nutshell:

PLUS - Got off work early since the afternoon class was cancelled.
MINUS - Tested positive for exposure to TB.

In my on-going admission to Pace/jump through hoops nightmare, I've "failed" my TB test and so must go and get a chest X-Ray before I'm allowed to proceed with classes. I don't have active TB, since I'm not sick or coughing up a lung, but I was more than a little surprised when I heard the news (only at first; I mean, I take the subway with 1 million other people every day...it was bound to happen). Oddly enough, I was feeling a little congested, phlegmy, and cough-y this morning, right before I went to get my test checked and I didn't think anything of it. Turns out it was a reaction to whatever was in the subcutaneous shot the NP gave me.

Tomorrow, instead of joining my siblings on the beach on the day I took off, the day that's most likely going to be the hottest day of the year up to now, I'll be chilling in the free chest clinic taking in radiation and picking up the pills that I'm supposed to swallow for the next six months. And, oh, I have only a month to get a clean bill from whoever the funk. The fun never does stop in my house.
