Thread: Sick and tired

    Default Sick and tired

    ....of being sick and tired.

    Getting over a UTI, but the cipro that's kicking the infection's ass
    makes me nauseous and headachey. It's been so cold and dry that I'm
    having nose bleeds, there's not enough body lotion in the world to keep
    me from itching, and, to add insult to injury, it makes my hair frizz.

    Scully's got a bladder infection, too (how's that for weird?), Zane is
    ticking like a time bomb for lack of exercise and Cooper has already
    gotten his ass kicked twice this week for following Zane around making
    rude subvocal noises and eyeballing. He has short man's syndrome (and
    possibly a death wish). I'd say hah, serves you right except both times
    he peed all over himself and had to have a bath.

    I need it to be spring, goddamnit! I want to sink my hands into warm
    dirt and pat mulch around tomato plants. I want the aroma of new mown
    grass in my nose as I push the mower for the first time over the
    frost-heaved sod. I want the sun on my shoulders and the smell of
    coconut oil. I want to go to bed with wet hair and wake up with ringlets.

    Is that really so much to ask?

    And, barring that, could I at least have some cheese and crackers with
    my whine?

    I suspect that someone in a warmer climate would welcome the help, Kathleen,
    and they might even let you sleep in the garage.

    Please let your doctor know about those side-effects. Especially the
    itching. You may be allergic to Cipro. Crash is.

    Those all seem like reasonable requests to me.

    I will e-mail you some Gouda and Town House crackers. Is that gouda
    for you?

    Dog.

    I'll admit to being a height/brain bigot when it comes to spouses.
    Dinky dumbasses need not apply, no positions currently available,
    applications will be kept on file for 1 year.

    Yeah, this is getting old. 25 below zero yesterday with wind chill.
    At least we'll get some melting this weekend.

    It's weird that my Bradford Pears didn't lose their leaves this year.

    I feel your pain; the end of May -- tomato-planting time in my zone --
    can't get here fast enough for me

    Hope you feel better soon!

    For me after several days on Cipro everything starts to taste bad.

    I find brushing ones tongue helps greatly.

    Yeah. And I called the office and they're like, "Are you experiencing
    shortness of breath or hives?"

    "Well, no. I just throw up every so often, especially when I try to
    brush my teeth, everything tastes like ass, and I've had a headache for
    four days."

    "Oh, well then, that's pretty much normal, you've only got another day
    and a half of the med, just stay with it."

    I don't have a UTI but a severe cold/bronchitis - for the third time this
    winter season. Damm - and it's my birthday. 4th year in a row I've been
    sick on my birthday.

    That sounds right Cipro is a pretty powerful antibiotic.

    When you're done you might think about or ask your doctor having some live
    culture yoghurt to re-establish your natural flora.

    That is what I had a few weeks ago. It was never really bad, but it
    lingered. Then my wife got it, and hers was a lot worse than mine.

    Dang. I had a nasty cold and thought I was in the clear ... then
    I immediately came down with bronchitis. I finally went to the
    doctor for antibiotics. This stuff lingers, and enough is enough.

    Didn't know everyone was sick with the same crud.

    Yes! Check out the allergy to Cipro (sulfa). I didn't discover my
    allergy to sulfa drugs until I was over thirty. I took Cipro for ten
    days and the UTI went away but I just got sicker and sicker until I
    felt like I had acid in my blood vessels and I broke out in hives -
    everywhere. Including the inside of my mouth. My doctor wouldn't let
    me give - administer it to my daughter a couple of years later!
    Check it out. Cortisone will help but the more Cipro you've taken, the
    sicker you'll get.

    Thank you! I think I might not sleep in a recliner tonight for
    the first time in over a week, so I think I've turned the corner.

    Man, it hit the 20s today, again. It's been a very cold winter.

    There is no relationship between Cipro and sulfa. Cipro is a
    cephalexin and sulfa is a sulfonamide.

    That is not to say you cannot be allergic to both.

    There is a higher incidence of allergy to cephalexins if penicillin
    allergy is present, though.
