I’m having a severe allergic reaction to the amoxicillin. I’m certain liver failure will set in before morning. My symptoms have steadily progressed with each pink pill I’ve solemnly choked down.
The intense aching pain that resonates through the core of my body is unbearable. The perpetual sensation of being punched in the bread basket never ceases. I’m dizzy. Disoriented.
I can barely breathe.
I can’t shake the feeling that as soon as I close my eyes for bed I’m done, finis. But I’m a fighter, and fish sticks and mac-n-cheese are not how I’m going out.
