Interstitial Cystitis and Illegal Mexican Meds

I am being kind of stupid today. My bladder is really bothering me and I don't have the energy or the courage to deal with my doctor via the phone. She'll ask me to go pee at the hospital and maybe then she'll prescribe something, long story there. Anyway I just want to feel better and no one will be around to see until Tuesday, oh wait, I'm wrong, I actually have an appointment with her tomorrow. I wonder if her new nurse knew that it was Martin Luther King Jr. day when she made the appointment for me?

Anyway Esther's sister has bladder problems a lot, and she just goes to the swap meet and gets prescriptions illegally from the people there. I'm sure you know that in Mexico you can go to a pharmacy and get pretty much whatever you need without a prescription. I wish it were the same here. I remember when we couldn't get yeast infection meds without first going to a gynecologist, which was just so unfair, and such a scam. Everyone knows when they have a yeast infection, bastards. So Esther's sister, Concha recommended Wintomylon for the pain, and Pentrexyl/Ampicilina for the possible infection. Esther's husband bought it for me and dropped it off when he picked up Esther today. I'm probably making a mistake but I have to do something.

I've been all over the net trying to figure out what Wintomylon (acido nalidixico) is, but everything is coming up in Spanish. I think I'll just try to read the Spanish. Okay back I go to do more bladder research. I have Interstitial Cystitis so it's quite a bit different from a bladder infection. I'll be back in a bit with my predictions and comments for the Golden Globes.
