Strep Throat. Seriously? Let the Whining Begin.

I couldn’t speak again today so I went to MedExpress this afternoon. I wrote down all of my symptoms and meds and so forth on my tablet. Thank God for that.

So now I have strep throat and a sinus infection. The good news is that I don’t appear to have bronchitis or pneumonia, but my costochondritis flared up. So now I’m homebound for two more days with giant gross tasting antibiotics that the doctor “strongly advised” require probiotics. I’ve never had a doctor tell me that before. These pills are like horse pills. How can that be good for a sore throat?

You know what doesn’t sound good when your throat hurts? Yogurt. Especially yogurt with probiotics. Why not ice cream with probiotics?

I feel like Christmas is over. We has this short burst of holiday activity at the end of November and beginning of December which was lots of fun and very festive. Then suddenly we hit the wall of backdoor renovations, canine cancer, hot water heater and now my cold turned into strep throat. So I’m sick, significantly poorer and trying to be grateful.

I can’t wait for January.
