Things that keep me running
For the last month I've been fighting off a strep infection. So far I've done 10-day courses of Keflex and Amoxicillin, plus an injection of Penicillin, and I still didn't get rid of the damn bug. My doctor chalked it up to my tonsils being so scarred up from past infections that they aren't getting proper blood supply, thus not getting the antibiotics and basically becoming a breeding ground for the bacteria. So the tonsils got to go. Until then, a 40-day supply of Keflex keeps the bacteria in check and lets me function through the day.
