A week and a half ago, a week into taking antibiotics for a UTI, I got a sudden and recurring nosebleed. Then there’s today, where several days into taking antibiotics for (another? the same?) UTI, some spotting on a Kleenex made me worry I was again having a mystery nosebleed so I spent half an hour pinching and icing my nose while my anxiety spiked, because I just can’t. And by can’t, I mean that I felt full well that if I had to go to the doctor again, I wasn’t going to be able to do it without help. And there’s no help to call upon.
