day 2197 – matching limes

driving was made difficult today when i can’t even do the shoulder check motion. i saw two matching lime green vehicles on the road as i was heading to my chiropractor appointment. it’ll definitely be a rest day after suffering a whiplash. apparently i’m not suppose to workout while experiencing antibiotic side effects. it’ll be a write off and i’ll take the time to catch up and prepare to start my intermittent fasting again

day 2196 – cephalexin

i’m hit by the side effects of the prescribed drugs. my cognitive skills are compromised and it’s certainly making me feel weak, fatigued and slightly drowsy. also signs of dizziness and nausea kicked in first thing in the morning. part of me thinks that the dosage of four pills per day is too high, but who am i to judge. i just have to worry about finishing what’s in the bottle unlike last time

day 2195 – walk in clinic

as much as i didn’t want to go back to work after a long weekend, i was less happy to be spending three and a half hours at a walk in clinic waiting for both the doctor and pharmacy. the mosquito bite flared up so bad overnight i didn’t get any sleep. i got up in the middle of the night to apply and reapply the hydrocortisone. when i woke up, my leg was so red and swelled up it no longer looked like a leg. the doctor prescribed the same antibiotics as last time. i guess that’s what i get for not finishing it last time

day 2108 – k fever

finally got my antibiotics even though i’m sure it hasn’t kicked in yet. wasn’t sure if i was up for late night karaoke but went anyways because i wasn’t about to be called out on bailing again. i generally don’t like the mic in my hands so i’m glad some of the guys like holding onto it. i am content jamming without the mic. i didn’t know any of the rap songs, but i was happy to just listen in. i was feeling quite fatigued by the end and was so ready to pass out the minute i got home

day 2107 – swollen infection

when i look down at my ankle, it’s safe to say there’s something really wrong with it. i got myself into my chiropractor because i thought my ankle was locked, jammed or sprained of some sort, turns out i needed to go to hospital more. the size of my ankle is twice the size of my normal and there’s random bruising on my ankle bone not to mention it’s burning inside. he suggested there’s an infection and get it checked out as soon. me being me, i checked the emergency wait times and declined. i wasn’t going to spend six hours at the hospital, but booked in to see my family doctor tomorrow morning

day 1651 – amoxicillin

the toothache got so unbearable it ruined my mood for any kind of gym time and i ended up at the dentist office. the antibiotics was meant to be a temporary fix for some kind of infection and if it doesn’t get better, it has to be reopened. guess i’ll look forward to tomorrow to makeup my heavy leg day. this better not persist and make me miss another workout day cause i’m already really upset to have postponed it on back to back days. the upside is this is another forced rest day which also forces me to sleep early
