I’m taking the recommended medications, but I feel shaky, weak, and feverish. This really sucks. Swallowing (even my own saliva) is torture. I’ve had strep throat before, but I don’t remember it being this bad.
I’ve been unable to sleep much at all. I ate very little yesterday, and limited myself to soup, ice cream, and popsicles today.
This damn bacteria set up shop in the back of my throat and is trying to poison me. In addition, my own body is making me miserable while fighting the bacteria.
I felt better mentally after finding out that this was strep, and having a plan to get rid of it. Now I’ve been suffering with it long enough that it’s affecting my mood badly.
The thought of riding my bike is comical. I don’t even want to step outside. Actually, I’d rather not be inside either. I want to be able to sleep through this.
Hopefully I’ll feel better tomorrow, and I’ll quit whining.
