Holy hell, will this sickness never go away? I’ve been sick for 10 days now, and nothing seems to be getting better. Well, at least it’s not getting too much worse either. The antibiotics that I’m taking have some rather unpleasant side-effects, and after 3½ days of taking them, nothing seems to be getting better yet. So in addition to a sore throat, earache, and stuffy head, I have to deal with the aforementioned side-effects (the details of which I’ll spare you), and my blood pressure seems to be extremely high as well. Just walking up the stairs is enough that I can feel my pulse throughout my entire body. If things don’t get better in the next couple of days, I’ll have to see my doctor in Springville and find out what the monkey at the hospital down here missed.
