More pills, no thrills and hopefully very few belly aches!


Tonight see’s me starting upon a new and rather intensive 4 week course of combination medications for a complaint that has, till now, been driving me crazy.
Its a kind of rash caused by a type of infection, which makes parts of my skin extremely raw and sore, and it comes up in a different place every day.
According to my Doc, this treatment is going to mean the next month is going to be rather tiring and not exactly pleasant, until its over and my system returns to its “normal” balance.
Right now, this infection has my tempreture running at 100.5 degrees and I’m feeling pretty foul. I have a taste in my mouth I cant describe which makes pretty much everything taste like rancid sugar,….. how I know what rancid sugar actually tastes like I dunno, but thats the only description I can give.
So, if you are of a spiritual nature, all positive vibes are appreciated. And dont expect too much of me this next few weeks, I’m letting myself take it as easy as possible and for once, I’m gonna do what my doctor says.
Lets see if he is as good as I suspect he may be. ;)
And if maybe, he can restore my faith in modern medicine.

Get ready for a journal of 4 weeks of pills, more pills, no thrills and hopefully very few belly aches!

  2. Good vibes your way. Health woes seem to be a common issue among my “tribe” and so I can relate wholeheartedly. Luckily, I have a renewable source of good vibes to share and so you and Noah have been added to my list of those in need of infusions.

    Take care!
