2013 hasn't been my worst year ever--it's not even in the top five worst years ever--but it has been the year when I've needed to use the widest variety of antibiotics I've ever used in a single year, which must count for something.
Infections are exhausting. Antibiotic resistance is a huge problem. And 2013 is almost (thank God!) over. For all of us, may the arrival of 2014 bring more good things than 2013 and far fewer of the bad.
