Vermox is NOT My Friend
Sooo, regular readers will remember this post from a few weeks back, discussing the wonders of modern medicine and the twice yearly "flush" of the system. Well, apparently, it didn't work, you readers might be "regular", but I most definitely am not. I am full to the brim with amoebas! Two different kinds according to the lab results. I have been getting sicker and sicker over the last couple of weeks so finally bit the bullet and went to the lab and the doctor. I won't fill you in on the nasty details of what's been happening, I'll leave that to your imagination if you really want to think about it. The lovely little critters having a party in my bowels include the famous e. histolytica and his lesser known friend, e. nana. E. nana is pretty harmless, just hanging out with his bully buddy e. histolytica which causes amoebic dysentery and pain and suffering and death around the world. I'm not going to die, though I sure don't feel "up to snuff". I'm starting a round of medicines, two for the different amoebas and one for the pain that the medicine can cause. Great, can't wait for more stomach pain! This is not the first time I have had amoebas here and probably won't be the last, let's just hope the meds kick in fast and I can get back to a "solid" life.
