I broke down and visited the old saw bones. Turns out I don't have just a nasty cold. I have the flu. There is still nothing much that can be done about it. He prescribed a narcotic cough syrup (2.5 day supply) to help me get some sleep in the short term to help my body's immune system. Oh, and the conjunctivitis is viral, so all I can do is treat with warm compresses. The good news is that I have been doing that all along and he found almost no sign of it. The eye feels much better now.
