Falling Apart

without comments

I am rapidly falling apart.

  • Got a rash on my feet and ankles that has been there for maybe 9 months, keeps going away and coming back. Now it’s starting to look nastier
  • Got at least two teeth that have toothache, only mild right now but I feel total dental meltdown coming on
  • Half my fingernails are turning white, the skin underneath is growing out, pushing the nail up slightly.

Obviously last year’s MRSA has nothing to do with item 2 but I wonder about the other two. Anyway, next couple of weeks will see a few medical appointments. I also have to see an FAA medical doctor to renew my aviation medical.

Tired of Being Sick

without comments

I assume there must have been a time when I didn’t feel sick but I can’t remember it. My first abscess/MRSA encounter was in November and I’m not sure I was sick before then so that’s probably when it all started. Since then of course I had the second abscess/MRSA deal and now a cold that has lasted a week and shows no sign of getting better. And my stomach hasn’t recovered from the first round of antibiotics, it’s been upset now for two months.

Maybe it’s no coincidence that I turned 42 in December, I was told that at 40 the body would deteriorate rapidly but perhaps I am just off by 2 years. Too bad I didn’t know or maybe I would have done something with those ‘extra’ two years. Yeah, I know, I would still have wasted them.
