After I was so very sick six weeks ago, I declared that I’d no longer blog about my illness. I was substantially better by the second week of May, but I’ve been coughing ever since. Well, now I’m going to blog about it again.
I took a turn for the worse on Friday afternoon. Friday night I had all the symptoms of flu — it was miserable — along with a cough that was so strong and constant that it left me exhausted. Yesterday I felt better, so I figured it was some kind of one-off weirdness. But the symptoms roared back, along with a 102° fever, so I spent a couple of hours in the ER last night. It turns out I have either bronchitis or whooping cough — it’s not clear which — but in either case azithromycin will kill it. For good measure I’m on a pair of inhalers and cough syrup with codine.
Clearly the gods are very angry with me.
