So I came down with Strep Throat. I'm not sure how, but the doctors confirm, I have strep. I noticed a sore throat coming into place Sunday evening and when I woke up with a sore throat on Monday, I wasn't too surprised. A sore throat typically means that a head cold is on the way for me, but it usually is only sore for one day. Tuesday, my throat was still sore and I picked up the regular meds while I was at the store, along with some spray for that sore throat (how many times have I said "sore throat'?!). Before spraying the back of my throat, I grabbed the flashlight and shined it inside my mouth. Holy crap! Not only were my tonsils swollen, but they were also covered in what looked to be mucus. GROSS! That explained the feeling of mucus building up in the throat. Speaking of mucus, I noticed that my throat was the only thing bothering me, no runny nose, sneezing, coughing, sinus pressure, etc. So, after blessing a few of my beloved friends with a gross picture of the inside of my mouth, I decided I better go to the doctor asap in the morning. So Wednesday morning, that's what I did.
Now, I must say, I've been informed that Strep is some serious business. Extremely painful and highly contagious. I'm still trying to figure out how I got it. No luck. But I have been having luck in the healing department. Already, my throat is not feeling as sore as it has been, and I'll be on my way to work in the morning. Yay!
Unfortunately, with all my resting, the only accomplishments I have made on this day are reediting my blog layout and finally being able to make this post. Now, if you'll excuse me, Once Upon a Time is patiently waiting for me on Netflix....Doctor's orders!
