This latest round of antibiotics I’m taking has definitely hit me hard. They have a label on them stating that they make you drowsy, and lesser warnings in the packaging about potential stomach upset. Of course not only was I nodding off yesterday afternoon after taking the first one (at my desk – oops), but I was nauseous all afternoon and evening.
I could barely do a thing last night, despite our un-decorated tree and our messy house. I felt awful. Luckily I didn’t have as severe a side effect as I do when I ingest xanthan gum, or as many as when I ingest gluten, but these pills are without a doubt difficult for my body to digest. I’m just trying to stay hydrated, take my vitamins, and pray that everything rights itself. The last thing I want to do is end up in the emergency room during Christmas because of a bad reaction to antibiotics, or because they went through me so quickly that they weren’t absorbed and my condition got worse.
I just want this to all be over – I am so ready to start feeling human again!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I think I’ll take a little nap on my keyboard…
