About a month ago I had a horrible sore throat, toothache, earache. Went to Promptcare in Adams Morgan. Guy did a strep culture which was negative, told me I had an allergy, said take Claritin, which did no good, and Flonase, which just made my nose bleed. A week later I was worse. This time the strep culture was positive, fever went up to 103.3. They gave me an antibiotic which did no good. When I asked for another one they told me to go to my primary care or to the ER. Going to my primary care was a mistake—I could have got out of the ER faster. Then I got what they said was a reaction to the Z-Pack—I think it was another infection.
Missed four days of school, probably a week of work. Didn’t go to mass Palm Sunday or Easter Sunday or take flowers to any of the places I usually do. I DID take the train to see the cherry blossoms, even though I could barely stand up, so as not to break the streak. And that’s what’s been happening. Or not happening. Another blood draw today.
