500mg Amoxycillin, Three Times A Day
So I’ve had this head cold for the last MONTH.
It’s just not gone away - seeming just to shuttle between my nose, eyes / sinuses, and throat. Bearing in mind that we’ve just had Christmas, so my training’s been way down (unless you count eating & drinking), this hasn’t been much of a problem. But over the weekend, I started to get the familiar symptoms of a chest infection. Being a sickly & weedy child, I tend to be rather prone to these, and can now recognise the symptoms pretty early on - even though I’m not a doctor, and don’t even play one in a TV programme.
Anyway, I saw a real doctor today, and yes, my chest sounded to her via the stethoscope like I’m set up as some sort of primitive bioweapons factory. I now have a nice batch of antibiotics to munch through over the next week, and official Doctor’s Orders to take it easy.
So much for getting a flying start into Base 1.
