Antibiotics can be harsh

My days are divided in two: before I take the antibiotic, and after. Before, I'm definitely sick, wheezy and congested and tired. After, I'm hammered. Incoherent, prone to sudden naps, weak, confused, hapless. It takes about 12 hours to wear off. It's stunning.

If it weren't obviously clearing my lungs up, I'd quit taking the stuff in horror.

Been sick for two weeks straight now, and am resenting it. It took me less time than this to recover when I had major surgery. Grrf. C'mon, body, get with it.

On the up side, I've completely kicked caffeine.
