Now I'm taking an antibiotic (4 times a day, what fun) and an anti-inflammatory (twice a day.) HowEVER, I HATE taking medicine and distrust and just dislike it but I'm TAKING it because I'm paranoid and whatever. Because the medicines leech vitamins from my body I'm trying to eat foods that are both generally helpful and reintroduce what is being sapped: in particular, folic acid, all B vitamins, and good bacteria.
While I waited for the pharmacy to fill my prescriptions, I ate something not so healthy but had been craving for weeks:
The bagel filled me up until lunch:
Also bought this GoodBelly juice to refill my lactobactillii and probiotic needs:
G and I had tentative plans to go to a friend's reading after work (free wine!) but since I can't drink on this medication (aarrrrrgghhhhh), we got tea at Mud coffee.
Tonight, to get back some B vitamins, I ate this huge salad covered in nooch.
To make this story even funnier, my mother keeps telling me that I don't have bursitis - I have GOUT. Which, if you don't know, most often occurs in people who eat fatty meats and fried foods. Which I obviously don't. But I guess anything's possible. Because my life is ridiiiiiiculous.
The elbow is still swollen but it feels less painful - mostly just sore. I'll keep you posted. Unless I die a horrible gouty death. 'Til then, a lighter note.
