No ZZZ For The Weary

It started as simple bronchitis. The doc prescribed Azithromycin. Six tabs in five days. No big deal... I thought. Seven days later, I'm so dizzy I'm afraid I'll faint when I rise (orthostatic hypotension). Light kills my eyes. I'm trembly and my head is fuzzy.

And perhaps the worst: I simply cannot sleep. Saturday it was 5:30 am when I drifted, Sunday I gave up and got up at 3 a.m. Now it's 2 a.m. and I've surrendered again. I'd take a walk if I didn't think I'd faint and be scooped up and taken to the city dump... Oh god, give me slumber...
