“My knee leg aches every single day!”

Oh yes, staphylococcus bacteria causing infection in the back of my leg. This spider bite that got infected has plagued me since late December but after a recent swab inside of the weeping wound, they have diagnosed a staph infection. Staph bacteria can also cause more serious infections, like blood poisoning and toxic shock syndrome so that’s fun, need to be careful. My energy is just drained, again. 😪

Starting the 3rd course of antibiotics (this is across the many months I’ve been dealing with this), started getting a fever again last week and I’ll be fighting this infection just in time for another summer heatwave. Currently the leg is wrapped in a multi-layer compression bandaging, going from toe to knee (click for picture) and I have appointments for the next 4 weeks to get my leg re-dressed and checked on.
Thank goodness for Weekend Wednesdays.

I’m tired, my leg hurts and I just want this infection to fuck off already! Not really a blog post about Weight… sorry folks.

Diet 😣 / Mental willpower 😰 / Exercise 🚷

Not blogging until this infection has vacated my leg so Next full post should be 7th September 2022.

Anyway, here’s the gif:~
