Well, the sore throat I mentioned in my previous post turned into something gross. I went to the doctor’s office yesterday and had a strep culture done by a very rude nurse. The “rapid” test came back negative and she sent me home with instructions to sleep and drink.
I slept and drank as much as I could yesterday, but around 2 am I could feel my ear starting to hurt. By the time I woke up in the morning I could barely swallow, couldn’t talk, and it hurt even to move my head. I went back to the doctor’s office, this time to see my real doctor. She took one look at my throat and was writing a prescription two seconds later.
It just sucks that I’m sick again. I’m going to look into taking a daily vitamin and really working on getting enough sleep, eating healthy, exercising, and drinking lots of water a day.
