Waking up at 10:45 a.m.
Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, Donut Peaches, Chia Seeds, and Yogurt. Iced Coffee.
All day shift at China Wok.
Picking up my prescription for a generic brand of Bactrim from Target. The guy at the pharmacy orders Chinese food from us all the time. He happens to order some on this day making it a convenient transaction. Chinese food for pills. And it only cost $4 for 20 of them.
After a delivery I pick up some probiotics from Whole Foods to take in between my antibiotics every day.
On the down time talking with my mom on the phone. She's very excited to be moving back up here to Virginia Beach at the end of August. She tells me she's already taken down pictures off the wall and packed boxes. We also reminisce on my sick years when I was young and had major ear infections. I was pumped up on various antibiotics for a long time that damaged my immune system for years to come. I'm leery to take them now but I know it's my best option considering the persistence of the bacterial infection on my arm. I've tried all sorts of natural remedies that haven't worked. I know that the antibiotics will kill every form of bacteria in my system, good and bad. So it's important that I supplement my body with good bacteria (probiotics) during.
Scrambled Eggs. Sunflower Toast with Non-Dairy Cream Cheese. Tortilla Chips with Avocado and Tomato. Honey Green Tea.
Apologizing to Ana for using one of her avocados...
It starts to pick up for deliveries in the evening. Driving non-stop to every place imaginable – a lot of hotel orders cause of the rampage of tourists at the oceanfront.
Two last orders for the oceanfront get called in while Ling cashes me out. Not feeling like waiting I enjoy my Tofu with Broccoli, Carrots, Onions, and Rice in Garlic Sauce while driving there. First hotel order stiffs me and the other I get a $1 tip. Whatever. I'm going home.
Starting my Bactrim antibiotics: Sulfamethoxazole 800-160 mg.
Catching up on things.
Chitchatting with Ana about my day while I soak in a tea tree and vitamin E oil bath.
Sleep 3:30 a.m.
