It wasn't just a back ache or even just proper flu, it was both those then add in a kidney infection too ( I only have 1 so it needs looking after) plus a touch of Dash In A Real Rush, Hurry Or Else Accident! That's such a good mnemonic!
So I won't trouble you with the joys of getting the local Out Of Hours health company ( playfully calling themselves Harmoni ?) to send me to their Out of hours doctor/nurse in Saxmundham (2 miles) to get a prescription. This involved them calling out an ambulance with paramedics so They could phone them back to say yes I did need a prescription for antibiotics. Instead of just sending me there in the first place or.......... I could have chosen? to go to A & E in Ipswich ( 25 miles) instead !
So whichever you 'chose' they make you feel guilty for taking up the time of Very Important Emergency people who could be doing something more urgent, but don't let you do the most obvious thing.
2 days of antibiotics so far and I managed to remain upright for longer today.
