I last left you happy to have a day off working out. I do know that I felt a little off that day, but I just thought it was allergies. By noon I was feeling miserable and by the time I got home for the evening I realized that I was sick.
I called the doctor first thing in the morning and got an 11am appointment. Turns out that I had a sinus infection and the doctor was pretty sure I had strep throat. (With no tonsils! Bleh!) I told him that I have to pay 100% of costs up to my deductible with my new insurance plan so he asked me if I wanted the strep test. I asked if it would make a difference. He said that his treatment for a sinus infection would be the same as strep, so no. Nice little savings there! I went, got meds and was home doping up by 1pm. I was psyched that my antibiotic was a powder that you mix with water, so that was cool. I believe my comment to my Leapsters was that they were oral...Maria reminded me that all of them are oral. Ha! I blame the sicky and drugs.
By 8pm I was disappointed because I thought I should feel "more" better. It was a miserable night and yesterday I woke up not even wanting to get out of bed. Bleh.
Today, thankfully, I am on the mend. Work is crazy nuts, but I just need to get through the day and then I can rest up over the weekend! I think I realize that now that I no longer have my tonsils, I have lost my early warning system. In the past, my throat would have hurt so much on Tuesday that I would have gone to the doctor a full 24 hours earlier. Now, by the time I realize I'm sick, it has knocked me on my ass. So, the con is that I will probably have to take more sick days than in the past, but the pro is that I never feel like I'm swallowing glass. So, net-net, I'm good with that.
Happy Birthday to my BBF, Debi! ( #4 :-) )
HUGS! (with a mask so I don't give you cooties.)
