Shut up and take your medicine...
With my head a bit clearer I can see in retrospect that I really should have insisted on the antibiotics last week when I went to the doctor. I shrugged and said "okay" when she prescribed Nasonex.
Let me just say that after 24 hours of antibiotics I'm finally on the mend. I can swallow without it feeling like cut glass and my voice is making a slow return to the land of the living.
My advice to anyone who gets this fever and sore throat crap that's going around? It's not just a cold. Okay? I'm a little slow sometimes but now that I'm feeling better I can see that I was being stubborn on that issue a little bit. Get the antibiotics and feel better. Don't be dumb like I was. Or maybe it's better said I was clueless.
GG is much relieved and happy I'm staying home from work today to get some much welcome sleep. So did I miss anything? The last week is sort of a blur.
