Honestly, if it’s not one thing it’s another!.
Something my mother was fond of saying.
I thought, well that was the last thing I should have done, for two days now I’ve been thinking I’d sit down and have a chat but between our ISP and WordPress that’s as far as it got. Fingers crossed this time 😊
‘When I was growing up in England there was a little game we girls (never the boys lol) would play in the playground as we sang a song about going in and out the windows. A group of us would stand in a circle holding and then raising the hand of the person next to you so they looked like arches, then another girl would make her way around the cirle going under/in and out of the ‘windows’ as we sang along. There were other actions but I’m a little hazy where they’re concerned.
This little tune and the tag line …..as we have done before …………was running through my mind at certain times over the weekend- but I have to go back to February first before I tell you why.
Taking a lead from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, as far as I was concerned my description of this past summer was an ‘aestas horribilis’ – a horrible summer! Extremely hot and humid – uncomfortable – my asthma played up, I couldn’t settle, then to top it off I developed a UTI.
If you’ve ever had one you’ll know that feeling of constantly ‘wanting to go ‘ and then the other feeling that comes along with it ‘lpeeing broken glass’ tiring and painful. We have a wonderful product here called Ural – little sachets of fizzy powder that are a mix of bicarb soda, citric acid, tartaric acid (as well as a few other bits and pieces) which help enormously by neutralising the acidic urine so relieving the symptoms before an antibiotic kicks.
Going back for a check visit after finishing the wizbang antibiotics recommended for bladder infections I mentioned how tired and weary I felt. We talked about the heat, the UTI and coping with mature age asthma all of which could have made me feel that way, blood tests were arranged but everything turned out normal. And the tiredness disappeared- but then so had the heat lol
Fast forward to Monday evening and those ‘funny little feelings’ come back again – yes a repeat performance. I was in and out of the toilet as ‘I had done before’ Luckily I managed to get into a cancelled appt at the GPs Tuesday morning and began the same antibiotics that night.
Just out of curiosity I looked at Mr G***le and discovered one of the possible side effects could be ‘tiredness and fatigue’ …..it’s early days yet but I’m wondering……was the weariness I felt back in February the result of all those factors mentioned to the doctor OR a side effect of the antibiotic?
