February--intestinal flu, and acquired gluten intolerance.
April--possible stomach flu, possible food poisoning.
And in June, toward the end of the month, I felt a UTI coming on, so I started taking cranberry pills, and chugging water, and tried the Alka-Seltzer thing that supposedly works for my mom. I thought my precautions knocked it out, but it came roaring back, and I went on a week of Cipro. Took my last dose last night, and woke up with a backache this morning, on the right side.
Yep. Fucking bladder infection traveled, and turned into a kidney infection. Doc had the nurse shoot me in the hip with a horse's dose of keflex (with what felt like a horse needle). She doesn't fuck around with potential kidney infections that don't respond to the antibiotic that takes out 90% of UTIs.
I am outright dreading what August through December have in store. Dreading it, I tell you.
This has been a downright bad year for my health...and for my sanity.
