And Finally

This will be the last time I mention being sick but I thought I'd better share this.

Not only have the pills that I was prescribed had no effect at all on my symptoms but they've killed my stomach, politely they've gave me an upset "tummy", in reality I've got the screaming shits. I'm now not only enduring a bastard annoying headache and having the odd blackout but every 20 minutes I've got to go and nuke an area the size of New York with my toxic ass. I repeat again, Doctors are coooooonts. Time for the babywipes and extra soft cushions I think.

Dontcha just hate ring sting? For something so simple, it can really ruin your day. Why God didn't put our assholes somewhere less uncomfortable (I'm thinking ankle here).

I'm so glad I recommended going to the doctor! I've recently had an ear/throat infection which then started on my eyes. My GP suggested trying some decongestant (something like sudafed) which she said is cheaper over the counter than on prescription. You could try that. Also, if you'd like any other second-rate advice, feel free to ask. ;)

To be honest I'm glad I went to see the quack. I don't feel so bad about giving people much less than perfect service now, GP's are clearly the land that service standards forgot. Besides I got some kick-ass pain killers if I ever need them, and don't mind shitting through the eye of a needle.

I've had a few days working less hours, drinking a lot more (water) and getting more fresh air and I feel much better for it. I'm not feeling 100% yet but I managed to build a small patio during the sunshine. Manual labour, now that's some real medicine. My ears and throat are still a bit gammy but I'm sure a little more time on my R&R schedule and i'll be back firing on all cylinders in no time.

Donna, hope you fell better soon as well.
