Got a diagnosis of "Bacterial crud in the body from the waist up, more or less".
Z-pack. Inhaler. Cough medicine so strong it puts me down in fifteen minutes.
I can't wait to get out of this city. I haven't been sick this often in years, and I'm pretty sure most of it is a reaction to the pollution that leads to infections. As in, my body is so busy trying to repair the damage from the pollution that when some nasty bug or virus wanders in and puts its dirty boots on the sofa, my immune system can't do much more than shrug.
