You know that saying, "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger?" Well its not always true. Ciprofloxacin is an antibiotic used to treat infections (In my case a complex UTI that won't go away) and it hasn't killed me but it has left me feeling like shit. In one way, I should be proud that I have ticked off all of the common side effects, and a good few of the uncommon but not life threatening ones.
I have the shakes, I feel nauseous (although thanks to that anti-emetics I am keeping them down just feeling sick). I have the worst heartburn known to mankind (and my prescription for this has had to be ordered! So no relief until tomorrow ...). I am itching head to toe, and I mean in every part of my body. I have these horrendous cramps in my calves, that literally have me jumping out of bed screaming.
Why am I sharing this? Because that's what I do. I share my life here. I share the good and the bad, and at the moment its bad. Since I left my full time job to work on the bank (a zero hours contract, but I book the shifts as and when I feel up to it) a set back like this gets me worried. Worried that I will have to dip into my savings etc.
Alas, for now I am going to take to my bed, watch trash on youtube and hope I wake up feeling better tomorrow!
