Strep Throat ~ Please go away, I can't take you anymore!
Friday, September 03, 2010
So I haven't been very active, the past couple of days, on my Sparkpeeps blogs and feeds and what not and I am sorry about that. I also want to thank anyone and everyone who has left me messages on my blogs and photos.
This Blog is nothing more than a "feeling sorry for myself" pity party blog....so please don't feel obligated to read any further! Sometimes it just feels good to get it out!
I went to the Dr. on Wednesday because I thought that I might have strep throat. Starting on Monday I just had a little sore throat, but when I looked at it Wednesday morning....it looked scary back there. I've never had strep...and I knew I had never seen anything like that before, so I decided to go.
She did a throat culture so I am actually still waiting on the results. But on Wednesday I was like...Hmmm so this strep throat thing isn't so bad, barely a sore throat and no other symptoms plus I'm contagious so good chance I can skip out of work for a couple days. My doctor did say that I could also be at the early stage and I may wake up in the morning feeling awful. Well...let me tell you! I woke up Thursday morning and thought that death sounded REAL good!! I haven't been able to eat anything AT ALL since Wednesday afternoon. I tried to eat some yogurt yesterday and couldn't do it! I have only been in this much pain one other time in my life.... I had a herniated disk in my lower back about 3 years ago, but this strep comes close second. Childbirth was a day at the park compared to this. Not to mention TOM paid me a visit yesterday, so all I have been doing is sleeping and crying and sleeping and crying! I feel like a big big baby!!
Anyway...I am on my third day of antibiotics so surely I'm going to start feeling better soon... I also found a big bottle of Hydrocodone that I forgot I had....so those have been helping (a tiny bit) with the pain. But I am hungry! I am thirsty! And I am scared that I am going to get dehydrated, so I've been struggling with fluids when I get brave.
I should be getting my results today and I am actually just praying that it IS strep throat, because if it isn't then what in the world else could it be? Throat cancer? Damn Tom for putting these horrible thoughts in my head!!
Well...if you got to the end of this I thank you for listening and letting me cry on your shoulder! I think I am going to take about a 3 hour nap until The Young and The Restless comes on....at least there's that! ;o)
