Chemical Explosion Waiting to Happen

I'm not going to bore you with my medical journey of the last 8 weeks or so... mainly because I just can't remember most of it! But I was just going through my meds in my head, and aside from all the usuals; vitamins, stomach/bone/liver stuff etc, the list of antibiotics i'm on seems ridiculous!
  • Azithromycin tabs
  • Minocycline tabs
  • Cipro tabs
  • Chloramphenicol tabs (this one even sounds dangerous to me!)
  • Temocillin IVs
  • Tobramycin IVs
  • Meropenem IVs
  • Colomycin nebs
  • Tobramycin nebs

And I've been wondering why my poor tum is acting up even more than its usual? Im a ticking friggin timebomb. Guessing there are serious casualties on the "friendly gut bacteria" front. Pity my chest is getting worse all the time! I'm on oxygen overnight now (the damn machine makes my room a sauna) but still feel heavy and have splitting headaches, I've been on IVs almost without a break for months... Its so tiring. Im wondering whether there is any point when i still seem to be deteriorating? It's not like im getting any time to do any more than take meds, do treatments, and every now and then manage a sleep or snack. The chloramphenicol is a last resort from what the docs said, anyone else got any experience with it? It makes my mouth/nose/chest gunk taste like a bastard along with a hundred other shitty side effects. Im thouroughly fed up by the way.



Anyway I managed to get my memory card photos onto my laptop so maybe i'll treat you to a few.

...Or maybe not?!
can anyone help me on why I'm not being allowed to copy and paste text from one internet window to another? ie. from photobucket to blogger? It happened when i tried to post something earlier but i assumed it was a problem with the other site, apparently not. I highlight and copy, but paste is just not an option when i go over to the blogger window! help? :S

ahh. here we go...

My First cupcake exploration with Jordanna, back in September!
the big pinks and whites were vanilla and the lil flat ones in the back there were out of a tom and jerry pack, strawberry sponge, yum... :S

  1. Hmm no idea on the photo front, but you could just upload them directly rather than going through photobucket? You just use the little icon thingy when you're writing the post that lets you select photos off your computer. Nice to see you posting though :) Xx

  2. Yup I've had Chloramphenicol. Totally agree- it does make the gunk taste awful but I kept walking into walls and I couldn't drive because I was just so dizzy!!! Have you tried the shortcut to copy and paste just using the keyboards? 'Control C' for copy and 'control P' for paste. It's lovely to see you back! We'd missed you!!! :D xx

  3. I was just thinking the same, it's nice to see you post! been missing your blog :)

    that is 1 hefty list of anti-bs :S sorry I can't be of any assistance on the photo front, I don't tend to use my photobucket often so haven't noticed a problem with it xx

  4. Hey when you are editing your post there is a tab in the top left corner that says 'edit html' click on that and then you can paste stuff. Then just click on compose to get back to the normal bit. Hopefully that will work!

    That is alot of antibiotics! I really hope they start to do something for you hun xx

  5. I've just seen the photos! You look lovely in the wedding one! :) They're really good photos! The cupcakes look YUM! xxx
