Day 309 – Sick

The past two days, I have been feeling like crap. Run down, chills, feverish at times – good stuff.  I was worried I was getting the flu – until my back started hurting.

A month ago I had a UTI, got drugs, and got well……or so I thought.

According to the doctor, it just headed to my kidneys. It didn’t go away.  I’m not on more powerful antibiotics for a longer period of time.  And, these drugs are fun – can’t eat dairy within a certain amount of time before and after I take it. Can’t be in the sun. Must drink a huge amount of water with each pill. No antacids or anything with that calcium magnesium stuff in it.  Oh, and it might make me dizzy. Good times.

So, I’m here, sitting in front of the fire and I have the chills again – and just fed up with feeling like this. Have I mentioned how much I hate being sick? Oh, and I have to go to Central Oregon on Friday for my brother & new sister-in-law’s wedding reception.  This is why I went to the doctor today.  Hope that a few days of antibiotics in my system will help me start feeling better sooner.  Until then, I’ll be here – doing nothing and trying to will this to go away faster.
