I am Not Well.

I went to the doctor again because the pain in my throat and the bad bad bad feeling in my lungs wasn't letting up. This is now the 5th time I have been to see a doctor since the end of November when all this illness started and FINALLY someone prescribed me some freaking antibiotics. She said the colds (since I have had two) both had complications thanks to my asthma (thanks, asthma!) and she's pretty sure the second one caused a rather nasty round of bronchitis. Again. And this one? SO much worse than the stuff I had two weeks ago.

And then she tried to prescribe me a medication with sulfa in it. Because it's Sunday, I had to go to a medical centre I've never been to before and you write in your medical history, including medications you are allergic to. I am allergic to ONE and it's sulfa. I break out in hives all over and it's absolutely ghastly. You think she would have READ my patient card, but no. She handed me the prescription and I was like "Uhm....this says sulfa? ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL ME!?"

Well, I didn't say it like that, but I felt it like that.

So I gots me some amoxicillian and I feel like I'm dying. Every time I breathe in deeply I cough. And my throat is still terribly sore, but now it tastes like oranges. Strepsils ;)

Let's see if THIS makes me better.

Though I did stop in to a bakery after going to the chemist, and I bought myself a Christmas cupcake and then I did a performance art piece about just how I am feeling about Christmas by eating Santa's face. Yum yum.

Oh darling! I wish I was there to make you more christmas cupcakes and tea and lots of things that don't have sulfa. Sulfa cupcakes would be weird anyway.

I heart you! What a stupid time to be sick :(

Well really, anytime is a stupid time to be sick but you know what I mean :P

I have to go do dishes, while i'm still feeling even slightly motivated. The kitchen, she is a bombsite!

At least you know what you're allergic to.

(I always look like a junkie and ask for what I want, complete with dose/qty <_< But meh, doctors are stupid. I found a free clinic here, at least!)

So very true! I learned the hard way!

HAHAH I did ask for pain killers and she gave me a look. She could SEE my throat was swollen, I am not a junkie! I HATE taking pills. They make me gag. I'm that uncomfortable. Cheeky doctor.

But YAY free!

Man, I'm sorry you're not feeling well. The worst kind of sick is being sick of different things all in a row, and bronchitis just isn't fun any way you slice it.

I hope you feel better (and yay, meds!). Sending good vibes your way!

oh my stars! I'm allergic to one drug AND IT'S SULFA. @_@

I like it when people say, "I'm going to the chemist." I learned the phrase from Fawlty Towers, and when I was little I didn't quite understand a sexual joke, and then when I got older, I thought "chemist" sounded so much more badass than "pharmacist." because a pharmacist is a capitalist fuckface. that's right; he fucks his own face.

I DID NOT SEE THIS COMMENT BECAUSE I AM BLIND! OMG we have so much in common!! ;) Sulfa makes me break out in MAD hives. And it's the only medication (so far) I cannot have.

HAHHAHAHHA! THAT'S RIGHT! I love saying chemist too :D Sometimes I break out the 'pharmacy' and people here look at me like I have two heads. Like when I say 'parking lot' instead of 'carpark' or 'sidewalk' instead of 'footpath'.
