I have a broken tooth, which has become infected. It has to come out, but before that can happen I have been placed on a week-long course of two antibiotics – two because the dentist is either unsure whether the bacteria causing the infection are gram-positive or gram-negative or it may be, as he says, one hastens the action of the other - to clear the infection up.

Pain is something I am familiar with, can handle or, at least, manage it through natural alkaloids or artificial suppressants or a combination of both. But these antibiotics are strong, & make me somewhat uncomfortable & woozy.

I feel clammy, unsteady, out of my environment, ready to play the title role in the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
