I left my immune system in Texas
I was taking 15+ pills per day during the acute phase of bronchitis. Cupping results, the second session.
Spleen, liver, kidneys... it's all out of whack. It seems I have been ill more often than well, here. Perhaps not accurate, but it seems that way, at least this fall and winter And I am sick again. I have continual sinusitis and lung infections leading to bronchitis. Luckily, I can walk into any pharmacy and get the antibiotics I need. The doctor is simply going to prescribe them for me anyway. At this point, I've had the same illnesses often enough to know what I need. After the last very severe bought of bacterial bronchitis, that lasted for one month, caused 7 cumulative missed days of work, and ended with torn rib cartilage (that is still slightly painful, one month later, if I sleep on my stomach), I found a competent doctor I trust, so I use the same medications.
But I can't help but wonder why I am getting these continual lung infections? I am weak in so many ways: physically, emotionally... I suppose something has to give. But I've never been this sick, this often, in my life. It seems like age has jumped out and clobbered me all of the sudden. I went from being a vibrant, energetic active person, to this debilitated, lethargic, hermit. And now with the blackness of winter accompanied by the horrid air pollution in Chengdu, I only want to go to work and come home and get in pajamas.
