Touching base......


Well, gentlemen! It's been a few weeks, but I've had health-issues to deal with, I'm afraid.

About a year ago I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism, which means my thyroid is WAY overactive, and in a sense my body was 'eating' itself. I'm now on medication, which is working just fine.

Then in February I got a cold, just an ordinary one, where you wake up in a sweat, with a fever, and snot everywhere. Within two days the fever was gone - the snot and cough weren't. After a couple of weeks the fever came back, and I went to the doctor's. No signs of infection, so she wouldn't put me on antibiotics just then. If the fever persisted, she would, though. It was gone the next day, and I spent the weekend in bed sleeping, instead of going to work.

Fast forward until a fortnight ago: I come home from work Monday afternoon, feeling a bit hot (not in the good way), and go to bed early. Next day I wake up with a high fever, so stay in bed until Friday, when the fever finally broke. Thought all was well, until Friday evening, when peeing became uncomfortable. Next day I went to the on-call doctor, with a urine sample, and was diagnosed with a UTI, and put on a three day course of penicillin. Sunday it no longer hurt to pee, and Tuesday I was done with the medicine. Felt a bit woozy in Wednesday and Thursday, but thought that was the after-effects of the medicine (wasn't really hungry, but stomach was a bit upset).

Friday I came home from work with a sore throat, and a feeling that I had something stuck in my throat. Had a quick look (always pays to have a small torch/flashlight at hand), and having consulted Google, knew I was the poster- for tonsilitis.... So after trying to work Saturday, it was back to th oncall doctors, and a new prescription for penicillin - this time for ten days.

Now? Oh, hoping it goes away quickly, so I can enjoy the week of vacation I just started.....
