Oh hey no. That's the wrong direction.

Katchoo - Terry Moore
Napped. Woke up with great effort. Feeling very, very listless and wrung out. And now, after second dose of Avelox, very spacey and slow-mo.

Worse, not better. Wrong direction, body. Make a u-turn. RECALCULATING.

Also ick factor - the Mucinex has sucked all of the moisture from my head and deposited it in my throat. But it has not done a damn thing for my chest.

Need to hydrate more, but I'm really nauseous.

My parents will be here tomorrow (and if Mom gives me shit about the house not being clean I will scream), so rest assured that if this trend continues, it'll get handled.

I really hope this sudden wave of zero energy is my body marshalling its forces to repel invaders.

Sounds like the 'Song needs an IV. And a Roomba.

Avelox is a really intense antibiotic. If you find you're not tolerating it well, don't be afraid to ask for a different one. There are several that work for pneumonia.

This.

I don't tolerate medications well, period. :(

I have found through very recent experience that there are three kinds of Mucinex available each of which targets a different mucousy-deposit. So check your labelling. :-)

Also this.

This one references bronchioles; it has no excuse!

It would make you twitch, but if your mom doesn't like the cleanliness of your house, she could clean it.

You do need to make sure you stay hydrated when you're on Mucinex. Don't worry about calories, just don't drink dehydrants.

Antibiotics always make me sicker, for some people it's like a little bit of self-murder in the few days before they clear up the illness. The stronger the antibiotic, the sicker I get -- on Bactrim I had to go stay with other people because I couldn't muster the energy to feed myself.

Drink drink drink some more. It's gonna be murder, but keep on drinking. Mucinex works, but it takes a lot more water to keep your body balanced. Maybe once you're balanced in hydration again, the antibiotic won't be as bad.

So is mucinex. Lots of water, and if you can tolerate it gluten free yogurt. Avelox tends to throw off the flora and fauna of the female body like woah.

As for your mom, if she complains you can always tell her that she is welcome to stay in a hotel. If she won't be part of the solution, then she's part of the problem.

(I am merciless when I am sick.)

Oh, she'll already be in a hotel. My house is never up to her standards.

Yogurt scans as poison to my body... the smell turns my stomach.

With nausia, try fruit juices cut 50/50 with water, and get into a habit of sipping. Also, make some of it into ice cubes, then break them into chips, then allow them to melt in the mouth, you'll swallow them when melted and not feel bloated.

You know what? I suggest you delegate that duty to Elayna. She seems like a fierce protector and I can't imagine her putting up with anyone dissing you, especially when you're sick. Give her permission ahead of time to get on their case if they try to give you shit and let her go to town. ^_~

I will have her brandish her sword at them.

Mucinex requires lots of water to work properly - if it's not getting stuff loose quite right, that tends to be why in my experience.
