Accident & Emergency for a cold

I had to, and it worked. Stay with me on this, but it’s why been so quiet on Style&Error. Got food poisoning/sunstroke crossover a week ago Friday in the sun. It was mental. It properly took me down. Got religion and everything during the night and ended up just glad to be. All I could do on the Saturday was get car washed at Stamford Hill and buy art book for Walters' birthday. Sunday felt better, ran, watched England get knocked out and did Jake’s birthday. Went out with Morrissey and Holden and proceeded to drink a lot while Morrissey tried to strangle Jake in Dorchester.  This must have compounded the stroke based weakness as got the worst cold ever had. Don’t even get ill never mind colds. Despise colds and look down my nose at people who get them. Got the devil's own cold. It wouldn’t go. At all for a whole week and a half. Dermot gave me echinacea, ultra celeb style vit C and a bag of hand picked cherries. What a gesture, surely that would work. Alas no.  Tuesday it dawned on me that was gonna need antibiotics.

Have no GP as new to area. Need to be fit to run again or will do something mental. Really. It’s the Serpentine Ball on Thursday for fucks sake, then X Factor Manchester Friday. Went on NHS direct phone line and found out what would be like if sinus got really, really infected. They explained that if got worse in a week could go hospital. Cut to chase went down Homerton A&E and told them my teeth and jaw were in agony from sinus pain and the metal plate in my head was resonating like a tuning fork. I also said I had to be around famous people for a living and this simply would not do. They went for it and gave me prescription on spot. I asked to fill in a patient feedback form so I could let them know I heartily agreed with diagnosis. The NHS is brilliant. Also got an hour and halfs work done on hat style for Centurion magazine during the wait. Mustard. Cut backs, what cut backs? Its like Hollywood round here.
