I went to a walk-in clinic today to get them to do something about the cough that’s only gotten worse since New Year’s Eve. The doctor prescribed me with Clarithromycin (antibiotic) and a ventolin inhaler. The inhaler is great… if my lungs start hurting (like when I was walking outside after work tonight in the -25 celcius weather) then I take a puff and I can suddenly breathe again. Just like magic. Haven’t taken the antibiotic yet because it’s stressed repeatedly to take it with food, and I haven’t eaten since I picked up the meds.

On top of all the coughing and lung pain I’ve been having, I’ve also had a headache for three days now. Needless to say, I wasn’t up to going out tonight, so I’m now sitting at home wrapped up in a blanket in the comfy chair with Ian’s laptop.

Will have to see if I’m up to working tomorrow. can’t afford the time off after spending 80$ on prescription meds, but can’t afford to work if I’m falling apart. Meh.

    Sorry that you’ve been so puny for a while now. I hope they’ll get you better soon, it’s awful when something hangs on like that. I’ll send some healing thoughts your way today.
