I've had a cold for weeks, it seems. In fact I was lamenting the fact that I'd had one way back on January 7, in my Blogger journal. I was still whining on February 18. At times I would think I was getting better, then I'd start going through the tissues again.
So I finally gave up and went to the doctor today. I told the nurse-practitioner I was fairly certain I had a sinus infection and, after hearing about my symptoms and checking me over briefly, she agreed.
She asked if I preferred any certain antibiotic, and I told her, "No, just as long as it's on my 'cheap list'."
"Oh, we can do that," she said. "I'll give you the Dr. G. Special: strong doses of Amoxicillin."
So I'm taking two 500 MG capsules in the morning, and two at night, for ten days. Plus, I have a refill if needed.
Listen, if that doesn't fix me in ten days time, I'll just live with the snot. I hate taking antibiotics. They make me grumpy.
