I’ve been dealing with a sore throat on and off for the past month. I did get a round of antibiotics from my doctor a few weeks ago and the sore throat seemed to go away for a few days. A week and half ago I started running low on energy and had a scratchy throat which I chalked up to allergies…until Sunday…when I couldn’t sleep at all because of how sore my throat had became.
I almost didn’t go to our last kickball game last night but I just HAD to get out of the house for a bit and I was feeling a lot better yesterday evening. I went with the hopes that the sore throat was a 24 hour thing because I did seem to feel better as the game went on. I didn’t even notice my sore throat after a while.
The soreness came back last night in the wee hours as I was trying to sleep. I think I got a grand total of 1 hour of sleep. I woke up not being able to swallow without severe pain.
I decided to cancel my CI mapping appointment this afternoon. I didn’t think it would be a successful mapping session if I felt miserable. I also didn’t want to spread my germs anymore than I already had.
The thing I hate about not feeling great is that I get SO frustrated at being cooped up and nothing seems to get done. I was one of those weird kids who didn’t like staying home from school for more than a half a day because of how frustrated I would get. I didn’t like laying around all day long doing nothing. That to me, was almost worse than being sick.
I’m off to Wal-Mart to get something to hopefully soothe my sore throat and to pick up something soft to eat. I just spent 10 minutes attempting to eat a bowl of cereal and gave up after the 4th or 5th spoonful. Then I’m going to take a nice hot shower and crawl back into bed and hopefully get a few more hours of sleep. Hopefully that will give me enough energy to be more productive this afternoon.
