I went back to the doctor this morning, turns out that i’m sick. I have laryngitis, viral pharyngitis, some bacteria that normally live my your stomach living in my throat, and herpangina. The one thing i don’t have is fucking herpes. Thank god. Despite the insistence of a couple of you, my dedicated readers, ::cough becca & lily cough:: that i do have herpes, the doctor was very clear on the fact that i don’t.
Anyway, i do have at least 4 separate infections, both bacteriological and viral. In the hospital this morning i got three shots, and they were going to give me a fourth one but none of the 3 pharmacies at the hospital and its on-site affiliates carried what i need, so the main site pharmacy is calling their dealer (distributor? i’m not really sure the technical name for a drug dealer who operates at such large scales. Somebody my have referred to them as the ‘buyer’) to see if they have any, but apparently it’s pretty unlikely and they’re probably going to have to buy it from the military. I’ll know eventually. If i’m lucky maybe my dad will come home today and get to stick needles in my ass.
I would like to point out at this time that the fact that i have 4 infections and 4 injections (due) is just a coincidence: all of the injections are general purpose bacteriophages and immune-boosters and whatnot, so we’ll see. The one that they couldn’t find was the one that was supposed to help the most (not surprising since they’re turning to the bleeding military for it).
In addition to the 3 shots i got this morning they sent me home with 3 pill bottles: one bacterial killer, one viral killer, and one bottle of vicodin. woo-hoo.
For about two hours today i thought that i could talk, albeit in a muted voice. I also managed to eat! Which if you haven’t been around then you don’t know that i haven’t eaten since saturday, but i totally ate a whole spoonful of matzo-ball soup! admittedly it was only a little bit of matzoball, and mostly the broth with a bit of noodle, but it felt sooooo goooood. God i’m hungry.
