On Tuesday a week ago, I started my second attempt to cure my middle ear inflammation with a new antibiotic and other bits and pieces. By then the symptoms of my original virus infection had largely disappeared. As the week progressed, I felt fairly optimistic, the pressure in my forehead began to disappear and the gunge stopped dribbling out of my ears. I was still deaf, but you can’t have everything.
Feeling stronger I began to write a new blog post. It was heavy going but I progressed gradually, paragraph for paragraph, and by Friday I had it about two thirds finished. A good weekend and I would have it in the bag, I thought foolishly.
On Saturday, my original virus returned with a vengeance. Since then, I have only, or better said I could only, blow my nose and try not to rupture something in coughing fits that go on literally for minutes. I keep having to interrupt this to reach for the next tissue.
I’m not making any prognostications anymore, as to when I’ll finally get back to blogging, but I’m really pissed off!
