The bacterial overgrowth is back.
Every morning I eat my breakfast, drink my tea and have a bout of diarrhea. It leaves me exhausted, in pain, overwrought and angry. After the first round of antibiotics I felt like I was the recipient of a miracle. I had energy and focus. My skin cleared up. While out to brunch with my family I came back from the bathroom with victorious news of a regular poo and everyone applauded.
Here's where the anger comes in. The antibiotic cost $85 been after insurance and a coupon, so round after round seemed outlandish. Now I'm patiently waiting for a different drug to come from Canada, because the US stopped distribution.
I'm so tired.
