Day 44: Antibiotics

Thursday, October 04, 2012

Well, the antibiotics seem to be working, and though I am discouraged about having to take them, I am grateful that a relatively simple cure for such a heinous infection as this one does exist. As my very wise friend Sassispring suggests, I am combating the antibiotics with probiotics in high doses. Funny to think of the warfare being waged in my gut.

I feel surprisingly bad, considering how well I felt just a couple of days ago. I am tired and extremely achy, almost like I have a bad case of the flu. I also have a horrible headache that just won't go away.

Aside from the pain and physcial backpedaling, the worst part of this so far is that I have had to bail on teaching one class (last night) and on attending the last Nia class I will be able to go to for three months this morning (the times of the classes directly conflict with my teaching schedule this term). I hate to miss out on the latter particularly. I was really looking forward to seeing everyone one last time. I am nervous about having to try to keep up my fitness practice on my own.

I'm also starting to get nervous about my trip back East next week. Being at the board meeting is always intimidating. And then I spend time with my family for five days. I am looking forward to this, but am also anxious about the conflicts that inevitably come up, especially around my relationship with my mother. Of course, I know that being anxious about it in advance doesn't help anyone. I will try to channel the anxiety into something more productive.

    What Sassispring said. Sorry that it's taken antibiotics to get rid of your infection, but at least they're working. Hopefully they won't wreak too much havoc. It's enough having to deal with the chaos of travel and family without that. XOXO

    It's great the antibiotics are kicking that infection to the curb. I'm glad to hear that you found good probiotics and hopefully they will kick the aching and not well feeling well to the curb soon. I know you'll find a productive way to channel the anxiety around the trip. Many positive healing thoughts sent through the universe, to you.
